MLB Weekly Sportsbook Betting Roundup – Oct. 15
This season’s MLB World Series is shaping up to be an all-Wild Card affair as we head into Game 4 of both the American and National League Championship Series. Kansas City is just one win away from punching it ticket to the Fall Classic and San Francisco has an early 2-1 edge in its quest to add another world title to its resume.
The most amazing thing about the Royals’ run through the MLB postseason other than the fact that they had some of the longest odds on the board to win it all is that they have yet to lose a game. After eliminating Oakland in a one-game Wild Card showdown, they swept the heavily favored Los Angele Angels 3-0 in the ALDS.
In Game 1 of the ALCS against Baltimore they won 8-6 as +113 road underdogs on BetOnline’s closing MLB betting odds and they pulled-off the sweep on the road as +110 underdogs with a 6-4 victory in Game 2. Monday’s game in Kansas City was rained-out, but that did not cool things down as the Royals went on to grind-out a 2-1 win on Tuesday as slight +102 underdogs at home to take a commanding 3-0 lead in this best-of-seven series.
BetOnline MLB Sportsbook has yet to post its betting odds for Wednesday’s Game 4 in Kansas City, but look for the Orioles to go with Miguel Gonzalez as their starter while the Royals counter with Jason Vargas.
San Francisco also had to take the Wild Card route to this point and it grabbed the early edge in this series with a 3-0 shutout of St. Louis as +115 road underdogs in Game 1. The Cardinals were able to even the score with a 5-4 victory in Game 2 as -132 home favorites on BetOnline’s closing odds before the series shifted to San Francisco for Tuesday’s Game 3. The Giants made the most of the shift in venue with a thrilling walk-off 5-4 victory on Tuesday night as -122 home favorites to take a 2-1 series edge.
Game 4 of the NLCS is set for Wednesday night and BetOnline has opened the Cardinals at even money betting odds with Shelby Miller on the mound. The “MLB Baseball betting” odds on the Giants have been set at -110 and they will be going with Ryan Vogelsong as their starter. The total for this game has been set at 7.
