Pitchers highlight Major League Baseball on Saturday

Being a fomer pitcher myself, there is really nothing that I like better than placing online sports bets on a good pitchers duel, or at the least getting to see a great up and coming star take to the mound. With a quiet day ahead, Saturday afternoon features some great talent on the hill today, especially as one of the best in the league, Brad Penny, is in action today against the New York Mets at home. With a win at home, Mr. Penny would move to 12-1 on the year, which would be the best start since the franchise moved across the country from Brooklyn in 1958. The Dodgers would also hope to get a win today, as the Mets victory last night, combined with a  win today would mean a lost series for Los Angeles, as well as a San Diego team that is keeping right on their heels in the National League West. For today’s game, it’s off to Betonusa.com, one of our best online sportsbooks and casinos offered here at CasinoReview.org, and as always, the bet has to go on Brad Penny to win. I was fortunate enough to avoid wagering on his one and only loss of the year, but to this point I’m 9-0 when betting on Penny and the Dodgers. Now I can only hope that I didn’t just curse myself!

Also in store for baseball fans is another start from the San Francisco Giant’s young hurler, Tim Linecum. As mentioned before, this kid has got loads of talent, which happens to be one of the few bright spots on an otherwise dreary season for the Giants. Going up against the Brewers tonight, Linecum is going to need to throw a pretty good game in order to hold his team within striking distance of a win. The run production has really hurt the San Francisco staff this year, and it already appears that Matt Cain has taken most of the brunt of the terrible run support. With a tough decision, I’ll take the Giants with the line tonight, hoping for another quality outing out of the up and coming rookie sensation. Dave Bush, throwing for the Brewers does have a high ERA, and if ever the Giants could use some runs it’s�well, anytime they can possibly get it.

With a few more online sports bets to make tonight, I’m counting out the Mariners, who have Jeff Weaver on the mound against the Toronto Blue Jays. This could be one of the worst trades the Mariners have made in recent years, as Weaver’s ERA is in the six range, with a 2-7 record. Ouch. Dan Haren on the other hand, gets the start for the Oakland A’s tonight against Baltimore, and he is certainly a good bet to go with for anyone betting on sports. There should also be a good match-up between the Twins and Angels tonight, as well as the D-backs and Cubs who are both trying to gain ground in their respective divisions. With plenty to choose from and good pitching to be seen across the league, tonight is another great night for online sports betting on Major League Baseball.
