MLB betting fans have seen the USA start the World Baseball Classic with a 2-1 mark against the MLB odds while Puerto Rico is 3-0. The United States got off to a strong MLB betting start in the World Baseball Classic as they beat Canada in Toronto by a score of 6-5.
They next crushed the MLB odds with a 15-6 win over Venezuela but then suffered their first MLB betting loss to that same Venezuela crew by a score of 3-5. Ryan Braun had a strong MLB betting performance for the USA in that loss as he went 3-4 with an RBI.
Derek Jeter is the team leader of the USA and a strong MLB betting asset who has compiled a .444 average so far in WBC play. Power hitter Adam Dunn has also helped the Americans against the MLB betting board with 2 home runs and 3 RBI. Chris Iannetta has a staggering on base percentage of .857 for the USA.
The Americans, in fact, have a loaded lineup that could carry them far against the MLB odds. The problem for the United States is that their pitching has ranked in the middle of the MLB betting stat charts and must improve. Puerto Rico opened WBC play with a 7-0 win over Panama.
That was followed by a 3-1 MLB betting payoff over the Netherlands. The Puerto Ricans then finished off the Netherlands with a 5-0 win. Puerto Rico's MLB betting strength is their pitching staff which is ranked 2nd so far in the WBC with a phenomenal 0.33 earned run average.
Puerto Rico is also ranked in the upper quarter of the MLB betting offensive charts to make for one of the better balanced teams that should give the Americans all that they can bargain for. Carlos Delgado has been on a terror with a .917 on base percentage. Ivan Rodriguez had clubbed 2 home runs so far in WBC play.
