MLB odds do not favor the Los Angeles Dodgers either but they are not nearly the long shot that Kansas City is with the MLB betting odds and could prove to be a bargain value.
The Kansas City Royals will host the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday with a starting time of 3:05 PM ET. Sports-Gambling will have side and total odds on this inter-league exhibition game so be sure and open your account and have it ready for action.
The Dodgers stumbled out of the MLB betting gate with just 3 wins in their first 9 exhibition games to start spring training. Los Angeles is under first year manager Don Mattingly and has plenty of ownership issues with the McCourt divorce that have provided for plenty of distractions over the past 2 seasons.
The Dodgers were a perennial contender in the National League West but that is now up in the air for serious debate in 2011. James Loney showed up to spring training ready for work as he was hitting .500 with 2 runs scored. Matt Kemp was in mid-season form with an average of .417 along with 1 run, 1 run batted in, and 1 double.
Juan Castro was hitting .375 with w home run and 4 runs batted in. Chad Billingsley began the exhibition season with 3 shutout innings from the mound as did Wilkin De La Rosa.
Kansas City is said to have the highest rated farm system in the history of the game but it is not likely that it will produce winning results for the 2011 MLB baseball betting campaign.
Ned Yost takes took over in mid-season last year as manager and is known for working well with young players. Kansas City began exhibition play with a record of 5-2. With one of the youngest and most inexperienced rosters in baseball the Royals will work plenty of players into the lineup this spring.
The Royals were one of the biggest long shots on the Sports-Gambling futures board to win the World Series with a price of +7500. The Dodgers had MLB odds of +2500 to win the World Series for 2011.
