Online baseball betting expectations are also high for the Texas Rangers as they are considered a bona fide threat to repeat as American League pennant winners after their baseball betting online breakthrough in 2010.
The Texas Rangers will host the Boston Red Sox in a potential preview of the American League playoffs. Game time is set for 8:05 PM ET and Sports Gambling will have side and total odds on this highly attractive matchup of top contenders so be sure and open your account and have it ready for action today!
After missing the betting baseball post season for the first time in 3 years last year the Red Sox are the consensus choice to win the World Series for 2011.
A big reason for the optimism is that their fellow American League East Division rival New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays look less than stellar and Boston bulked up in the off season with the acquisitions of sluggers Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez.
With a pitching staff that is considered much improved as well it is easy to understand why Boston is a hot choice with gamblers so far. Gonzalez should own Fenway Park in Boston after his monster seasons in San Diego, which does not have a hitter friendly park like Fenway. Last year Gonzalez hit 33 doubles and 31 home runs.
Texas is coming off their most successful baseball wagering season ever as American League champions and is a solid choice to repeat as the top team in the American League West Division. The team remained basically intact during the off season and should be loaded with confidence. The one big loss was starting pitcher Cliff Lee who is with Philadelphia.
Texas has dominated this series with 12 wins in the last 17 games between these two teams. The Rangers have paid out in 7 of their last 9 home games against the Red Sox with 7 of the last 10 matchups in this series at Texas going under the total.
Texas was a +600 pick at Sports-Gambling to win the World Series while Boston was a +300 online baseball betting favorite to win the Fall Classic in 2011.
