Baseball betting enthusiasts know that the Angels enjoyed a tremendous regular season in 2007 before faltering in a highly forgetful playoff run that will have the team looking for vengeance in 2008.
The Angels look to be a promising baseball bet once again this season, although the secret is out on this talented squad so one must be careful about finding value in the team’s baseball betting odds.
Baseball betting on the Angels was fairly successful last year because the team exceeded the expectations of most baseball betting fans by having a tremendous regular season. The Angels enjoyed an excellent 94-68 overall record which is highly respectable, despite the fact that the Angels play in the notably weak AL West.
The Angels also fared quite well against the baseball betting run line, finishing the season with an 81-81 record that actually yielded positive units by the end of the year. However, anyone who placed a baseball bet on the Angels in the playoffs was likely disappointed as the squad was swept by the Red Sox in the first round.
The Angels have a fairly talented team with which to enter the 2008 season; so many baseball betting analysts have high expectations for LA this year. The team’s roster boasts three All-Stars and baseball betting favorites from last year: Vladimir Guerrero, John Lackey, and Francisco Rodriguez.
However, while many baseball betting fans believe the team will likely win a lot of games in 2008, that fact does not necessarily mean the team will be a great baseball bet.
Last year the Angels offered decent baseball betting value in part because not so many gamblers anticipated their success or consistently looked to place a baseball bet on them.
On the other hand, many baseball betting enthusiasts are undoubtedly looking forward to betting on the Angels in 2008, which may actually increase their baseball betting odds to an undesirable level.
Therefore, your baseball betting on the Angels in 2008 must be done very carefully and you need to make sure that when you are baseball betting on the Angels as favorites you have done your handicapping homework and have found real value in the baseball betting lines.
