MLB Betting Thursday with A's vs. Angels at Sports Gambling

MLB betting action on the opening series of the season between Oakland and L.A. will be the last game on the MLB odds board between the teams this week.

MLB betting interest has increased on the A’s as they had an unusually productive off season that has increased their value against the MLB odds.  The scheduled starters for this MLB betting matchup are left hander Brett Anderson of Oakland against right hander Jered Weaver of Los Angeles.

The rookie Anderson is a new name listed on the MLB odds board while Weaver has a 35-19 career record along with a 3.71 earned run average in three full seasons with the Angels.  MLB betting on the Angels is synonymous with success.  Last year LA scored 100 wins to take the west division title.

The Angels are again a MLB betting favorite to go all the way in the American League.  LA got off to a strong start this MLB betting season with a 3-0 shutout win over Oakland on opening night.

Right Fielder Vladimir Guerrero leads a talented offense and is coming off another .300 season in 2008 as he finished with a .303 average while clubbing 27 home runs and driving in 91.  Those 27 home runs, in fact, are the lowest total in Guerrero’s MLB betting career.

Left fielder Bobby Abreu was the big off season acquisition for LA and is another key component to their offense as he hit .296 last year with 20 home runs as a Yankee.  The Athletics attracted interest by re-acquiring Jason Giambi in the off season.

Giambi began has career in Oakland and was a key reason for their being a consistent MLB betting contender earlier this decade.  Nomar Garciaparra was acquired from the Dodgers to handle third base duties this MLB betting season.  Shortstop Orlando Cabrera was another key acquisition from the White Sox.

Left fielder Matt Holiday came over during the off season from Colorado to offer the combination of power and average.  The A’s added all of these players to the cornerstone of the team, third baseman Eric Chavez.  The expectations are high in Oakland for a return to the post season!
