Baseball Betting on Royals vs. Rangers at Sports Gambling

Baseball betting Friday night includes an interesting matchup of teams that may be surprise values against the baseball odds this year.

Baseball betting fans have gotten excellent value from Kansas City to start the year while Texas has operated in the red so far against the baseball odds.  The probable starting pitchers for this baseball betting matchup will be right-hander Gil Meche of the Kansas City Royals and lefthander Matt Harrison of the Texas Rangers.

Meche has two starts and no decisions against the baseball odds so far this year and a solid 3.21 earned run average.  Meche has had his share of baseball betting struggles against Texas; however, as he has a career mark of 4-9 and a 6.32 earned run average.

Harrison has just one start so far this baseball betting season and is 0-1 with a 6.35 earned run average.  He is 1-0 lifetime against the Royals with a 1.35 earned run average.  Kansas City won 4 out of their first 7 baseball betting decisions this year with 6 out of those 7 games having gone under the total.

The Royals opened on the road against the Chicago White Sox before coming home to open their newly renovated Kauffman Stadium against the New York Yankees followed by the Cleveland Indians.  Kansas City is all about pitching as the Royals had the 5th best earned run average in the majors.

KC’s offense, on the other hand, ranked just 29th.  These rankings help explain the baseball betting equation towards KC being such an “under” team.  There could be no more striking contrast in teams than this match up as the Rangers are the baseball betting opposite of the Royals.

Texas ranked 2nd overall in the majors for offense while ranking 27th overall on the mound.  The Rangers lost 4 out of their first 7 games this baseball betting season with just one of those games going under the total.

Nelson Cruz has supplied much of the juice for Texas as he had 3 home runs in the first week of play.  Ian Kindler was hitting .370 with 5 doubles and 2 round trippers.
