Closing out the weekend with Major League Baseball, …

With the Major League Baseball All-Star break coming in just over a week, today is another great day for betting on the best of the best, and watching the All-Stars contestants perform now that they are under the spotlight is always a good time leading up to the break set for July 12th. Luckily for baseball and sports betting fans alike, Sunday afternoon will feature some great match-ups for our online sportsbook betting, including fifteen MLB games, which will undoubtedly show off some of the firepower available in the upcoming All-Star game. As teams approach the half way point of the season, it always seems as though the spotlight tightens on Major League Baseball, and players who have made it into the All-Star game like to show off why they were put there, while a number of remaining spots available on either side’s pitching rotation are up for grabs, putting a special spotlight on some of the lesser known, but still outstanding young pitchers in the league. Between Major League Baseball, as well as a couple of matches set for the 2011 Women’s World Cup including Australia vs. Equatorial Guinea and Norway vs. the powerful Brazil led by one of the world’s best female players in the singularly-named Marta, no doubt today’s online sports betting options should find you with at least a couple of good opportunities to score some added cash today.

First up for online sportsbook betting today, my opening wager will have to be on the final game of the Subway Series in New York, with the Yankees seeking a road sweep while the Mets try to avoid embarrassment at the hands of their cross-town foes, and get back to even .500 ball on the season. Expect a good pitching match-up with Freddy Garcia for the Yankees vs. R.A. Dickey for the Mets, and while it will be a tough game to make the correct wagering call on, judging by the desperation to pull out a home win tonight, I’m going over to sportsbook (read the review of for the wager on the Mets to sneak a win out in a low-scoring contest. Next up for the best sports betting options available in the MLB today, the Freeway series in Southern California concludes as well, as the Angels and Dodgers battle once again (Ervin Santana vs. Chad Billingsley) and both sides will be vying to pick up a win for the last day of Interleague play. With both pitchers throwing well, but Santana getting the least run support (3-8, 4.08 ERA and falling fast), I like Billingsley to lead the Dodgers to a win today and win the series against their Orange County counterparts.

Other great baseball games in store for wagering on today feature great pitching duels between the Detroit Tigers and the San Francisco Giants (Rick Porcello v. Ryan Vogelsong), as well as the St. Louis Cardinals vs. the Tampa Bay Rays (Kyle Lohse vs. Jeremy Hellickson), and the Oakland A’s vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (Gio Gonzalez vs. Ian Kennedy) . Find even more options for betting on sports as the Texas Rangers look like a positive option to win against Florida, as C.J. Wilson faces Javier Vazquez tonight in the evening game at the Ballpark in Arlington, featured on ESPN. Don’t miss the finale of the Chicago Cubs vs. White Sox as the Cubs seek to avoid a sweep on their home field, and certainly wager on a big run total in Cincinnati between the Reds and Indians, as whenever Mike Leake pitches he gets quality support, and against Mitch Talbot, the Reds’ bats should see some success (2-4, 4.96 ERA).
