We’re jumping into the online sports betting action on Wednesday just a little bit late, however, if you’re like us and just getting down to one of the top reviewed online sportsbooks for today’s wagers, there’s still plenty of time and plenty of good options for wagering on the remaining games in Major League Baseball today. With 9 games left to be played today, as well as some opening wagers coming online for tomorrow’s duo of NFL preseason games, join us right now down at the WagerWeb sportsbook, for the best betting options remaining in play today. Let’s take a look at what’s in store for you for Wednesday wagers, and where there’s good opportunity to pick up some extra cash on today’s MLB lines.
First and foremost, the ongoing series between the New York Yankees and the Texas Rangers is one of the hottest betting items available today, with Game 3 of a 4-game set taking place tonight at Yankee Stadium. It’s looking like a high-scoring match-up in the making with Texas putting up Scott Feldman (6-7, 4.64 ERA) against the veteran Freddy Garcia (6-5, 4.85 ERA). Both pitchers have thrown well in recent weeks, but after a low-scoring night last night, expect the over/under betting line set at 9 ½ runs to be challenged as the big bats of both lineups pick up tonight. We’re siding with the Yankees to pick up the win straight up at -119 odds, based on the fact that Texas has struggled to get their offense going enough to keep up with the guys in pinstripes so far in this series.
Next up, turn to a favorable match-up for the New York Mets, who are in action against the Cincinnati Reds tonight. R.A. Dickey (15-7, 2.72 ERA) continues to be the dominant pitcher in the National League, and looking for his 16th win of the season tonight, he’ll have a good possibility of doing it against Mike Leake (4-7, 4.51 ERA), who has been inconsistent lately on the mound for the Reds. Cincinnati seeks a 5th straight win this evening, but we’ll go out on a limb and take the Mets to grab a game here tonight, and deliver a victory on the road behind Dickey. Make sure to also check out other NL match-ups tonight including the LA Dodgers at Pittsburgh Pirates (LA is a -140 favorite behind Clayton Kershaw), look for the Braves to stay strong at home as they host the San Diego Padres (we’re taking the Braves to cover -1 ½ runs at +115 odds), and expect a solid showdown between the St. Louis Cardinals and the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks as Adam Wainwright duels with Joe Saunders.
For the remaining games on the American League side of the MLB divide, turn to the games between the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles as well as the Chicago White Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays as both these games should feature some favorable odds for sports betting today. First, the Baltimore Orioles have good draw on the mound as former BoSox pitcher Miguel Gonzalez (4-2, 3.42 ERA) matches up against Aaron Cook (3-5, 4.70 ERA), who has continued to struggle in his most recent starts. Baltimore, who is a -132 favorite straight up, is awfully tempting to take against the spread, needing to cover 1 ½ runs in a win to pick up +165 odds. As far as the Chicago vs. Toronto match-up, two veteran pitchers in Gavin Floyd and Ricky Romero get set to duel against one another, but with Romero finally starting to find form and pitching well against the White Sox this season, we have to back the Jays at home to pull out with a victory, and -110 odds for straight up wagers. Make sure to check out these match-ups and more for Major League Baseball betting, and start looking at the pair of NFL preseason games set for tomorrow between the Atlanta Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals, as well as the Green Bay Packers vs. Cleveland Browns!
