Last night, the Oakland Athletics clinched up a spot in the 2012 AL playoffs when they beat the Texas Rangers. Tonight when these two teams meet, first place in the AL West will be on the line.
The Rangers absolutely can’t believe that they are in this spot right now. They are now in a spot where they are looking back at the A’s, and are level with the New York Yankees for the best record in the American League, and New York will win that tiebreaker.
NL Central rivals meet in what might be a playoff preview for MLB betting fans to enjoy, as the Cincinnati Reds take to the field at Busch Stadium against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Reds are still fighting to win home field advantage in the National League playoffs, but their time is running short. They’re level with the Washington Nationals, but they will lose the season tiebreaker and drop into the No. 2 slot.
The Tampa Bay Rays were eliminated from the playoffs last night, but they are still one of the hottest teams that the game has to offer. They’ll try to win their 90th game of the season at the expense of the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night in MLB betting action.
The Orioles really took a big step in the wrong direction yesterday, as they are now for some big time problems. They’re in Tampa Bay now, and if the season were to end today, they would have a day off to fly to Oakland for a one-game playoff against the Athletics,
Two of the most bitter rivals in baseball betting action meet for (what should be) the final time of the season this week. Monday’s clash between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants might be the deciding game for both teams and their playoff hopes this year.
Oh sure, the G-Men already know that they are going to be in the postseason this year, but they know that they have to sweep to avoid having to start the playoffs at home (remember when that was a good thing to do?).
The bubbly could be flying at Kauffman Stadium on Monday night for the Detroit Tigers, as they hope to clinch up the AL Central title at the expense of the Kansas City Royals in their final series of the season.
Detroit has been helped by the swoon of the Chicago White Sox, and the truth of the matter is that it will be spending this game watching the scoreboard as well to see what is going on with the Sox.
The last series of the year for MLB betting fans kicks off in the Bronx on Monday night, where the Boston Red Sox will hope to make the playoffs a living hell for the New York Yankees.
The Red Sox have long since been out of the discussion for the second season, and this might be the last time that we have to see Manager Bobby Valentine ruining the Nation. Boston is seemingly just trying to avoid finishing with the worst record in the American League or in the AL East.
A pivotal four-game series opens up on Thursday for MLB betting fans to enjoy, as the race for the playoffs in the American League will take further shape for both the Tampa Bay Rays and the Chicago White Sox.
The shame here for the Rays is that they have won seven in a row, and they probably need to win six out of seven to even think about getting into the playoffs. They do know that they control their own destiny to get into the show now at least, knowing that they are within three games of the Baltimore Orioles, the team that is coming to Tropicana Field to end the season.
Combatants in the AL West continue their pivotal four-game set in Arlington on ESPN’s Wednesday Night Baseball betting festivities, as the Oakland Athletics and the Texas Rangers duke it out.
Oakland is a heck of a team, and it just keeps showing the resiliency that is going to be needed to get into the playoffs this year. The team has a couple games of safety in the loss column, but both the Tampa Bay Rays and Los Angeles Angels are charging hard down the stretch.
The Tampa Bay Rays will make one last push at a spot in the playoffs in the AL East starting on Tuesday night in MLB betting action when they send their ace to the hill against the Boston Red Sox.
Tampa Bay has won five in a row, but it pretty much might have to win out to get into the playoffs. The Baltimore Orioles are four games in front of it, while the Oakland Athletics, though slumping, are still three up.
The Oakland Athletics hope to take one more step towards clinching a spot in the playoffs this year in MLB betting action when they duke it out with the Texas Rangers on Monday night.
The A’s just had a bad weekend in the Big Apple, as they lost two out of three and lost a couple games in the Wild Card standings to both the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels. They still hold a comfortable three-game edge in the loss column against the Halos and four on the Rays, but this is the first of seven games against the Rangers left to play this year.
