Major League Baseball, Online Casino Action for Thursday

After quite a long drought, this afternoon Barry Bonds has quickly moved within 3 home runs of overtaking Hank Aaron’s all-time home run record. Playing against the the Chicago Cubs this afternoon at Wrigley field, Bonds managed to go deep twice and drive in 6 RBIs in a losing effort as the dismal San Francisco Giants fall to one of the worst records in the majors at 39-54. The Cubs however, are absolutely rolling right now, after getting off to yet another poor season start, and now stand at 50-44 and only 3.5 games behind the division leading Milwaukee Brewers. With a few online sportsbook bets placed earlier today, the Cubs have secured part of a three team parlay wager for this evening placed at, one of our best online sportsbooks offered here at Divisional rivals the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays faced off this afternoon, and as luck would have it, the Jays finally beat the Yanks with a 3 run 7th inning to win 3-2 and cool off the Yankees hot streak. With only one game remaining tonight in my three team parlay wager, things are looking pretty good for a online sports betting win, provided that C.C. Sabathia and the Cleveland Indians can come out victorious tonight in Texas against the Rangers.

The AL west race is really starting to heat up between the Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners, two teams that are prime candidates for wagering on in our top sportsbooks here on our site. The Angels, who are trying to get out of their pre-All-Star break slump just finished off the Tampa Bay Devils Rays this afternoon as Kelvim Escobar went 7 2/3 innings of shutout baseball to secure the win. After an embarrassing loss last night at Tropicana Field, the Angels needed this bounce back win as they head next to Minnesota to take on the Twins who have just been swept by the Tigers and will no doubt be looking for retribution against the visiting Halos. Seattle will head for a weekend series starting tomorrow against the Toronto Blue Jays, now only two games behind the L.A. Angels for the division lead out West. Oakland has all but shot itself in the foot, as they have dropped all games so far this month up until Wednesday’s win against Texas. With the two teams above them, it will be tough to call whether or not the A’s will be able to rally back in August as they have become so notorious for doing in the year’s past. It’s certainly not the same team this year though, especially not without head coach Billy Beane calling the shots in the dugout.

With all my baseball wagering complete for the day, and work just having been finished, it’s off to tonight for some online casino action, and hopefully a few more dollars placed in my online sports betting account. It’s been a long week thus far, but with tomorrow being Friday, we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief before kicking back with a great weekend of sports and online sports betting. There are a few good games still left for wagering on this evening, including the Dodgers and the Mets tonight from Chavez Ravine, so if you haven’t done so already, head on down to one of our best online sportsbooks, and place a wager or tow. It’s a great night for baseball, and as always and great night for betting on sports!
