Sportsbook betting for Major League Baseball on Saturday

There is always a time for betting on baseball, and Saturdays are great days to capitalize on an afternoon of sports, and lounging around while enjoying nothing but good baseball all day long. For Saturday’s online sportsbook betting, there are a number of good money-making games to choose from, and I for one am in on the action with a trip to for some sportsbook wagers and maybe a little afternoon casino action. Before the games start today, taking a look at some of the hot teams in the league brings you instantly to the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago Cubs. Throw in the L.A. Angels, who are just tearing up the league with their bats, and the Arizona Diamondbacks who are nipping right on the Los Angeles Dodgers’ shoe strings, and you’ve got yourself plenty of great sports betting opportunities to potentially cash in on.

There is one great pitching duel this evening as the Houston Astros play host to the San Diego Padres. Roy Oswalt, who no doubt would at the top of the majors in wins if it weren’t for a sub-par hitting year for the ‘Stros, goes up against the crafty veteran Greg Maddux. If you happen to have MLB Extra Innings or MLB.TV, make sure that you tune for at least a little of this match-up as it should be a great game for watchinga couple great pitchers duke it out. Oswalt has been looking good lately, and seeing as the San Diego Padres are favored to win, I’ll look to capitalize on an upset with Oswalt on the mound. Plus, the combination of Oswalt and Brad Lidge in the closer role has been something I’ve missed while Lidge has gone through some difficulties this year, and I’d love to see a return to the lethal 1-2 punch these two pitchers have when they get a lead.

Going around the Major League Baseball horn, the Dodgers look to fend off the charging Rockies tonight, which could find them in a virtual tie for the NL west lead if they lose and the Diamondbacks win this evening. Seattle takes on Oakland, and will need a win to keep their record within striking distance before they start a new series with the L.A. Angels this coming week. Minnesota against Cleveland should be a good contest, with Johan Santana on the hill, and Roger Clemens goes for the Yankees in Baltimore trying to get back to .500 on his less-than-great return to baseball. Anyway you slice it, online sports betting on baseball have plenty of choices, and great ways to cash in on today’s MLB games. Place your bets early, and good luck on today’s action!
