  • BookMaker.eu What more could MLB bettors ask for than the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball telecast to pit two teams up against one another that are in the thick of a hotly contested division pennant race? That’s exactly what will go down at online sportsbooks in the final game of this week’s MLB betting action when the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays collide in the finale of their scheduled three-game set. The BoSox last paid the Trop a visit at the end of June where they would go on to lose two of three to mov... 

  • BookMaker.eu Now seven games out from qualifying for one of two NL Wild Card slots, the St. Louis Cardinals must kick it into high gear if they’re to punch a ticket to the playoffs a third straight season. While there’s still plenty of time for Mike Shildt’s squad to make a run, the clock is ticking. As for the Minnesota Twins, you can put a fork in this group of underachievers. Expected to give the Chicago White Sox a run for division bragging rights, the Twinkies have been one of the worst bets at online s... 

  • BookMaker.eu The pitching matchups between the Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers have been on point through the first two games of this series! The trend continues at online sportsbooks on Sunday night when Lance Lynn takes to the bump for the visitors to oppose Brandon Woodruff in a matchup of heavyweight right-handers.

  • BookMaker.eu When the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox opened their four-game series up in the Bronx coming out of the All-Star break, Aaron Boone’s squad was staring at an eight-game deficit within the division. With a week passed since and the team logging four wins through five tries at online sportsbooks, it’s only cut the deficit to 7.5-games heading into Thursday’s series opener in Beantown. The BoSox simply don’t look to be going away anytime soon as it remains perched atop the division standings. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Entering Monday night’s series opener, the NL Central rival Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals sported identical 46-47 records. The season has slowly gotten away from both clubs with the Milwaukee Brewers starting to run away from the pack after going into Cincinnati and busting out the brooms to put the Reds further in their rearview mirror. With the Cubs already making it crystal clear that they’ll be sellers come the trade deadline and the Redbirds simply just lacking in the talent departme... 

  • BookMaker.eu If the New York Yankees hold a series lead over the Boston Red Sox heading into Sunday night’s series finale, you can bet your bottom dollar linemakers will have the home team installed inflated favorites to come out triumphant with Gerrit Cole likely to take the bump. Though it hasn’t been confirmed New York’s staff ace will get the start at the time of this writing, it only makes perfect sense for Aaron Boone to give his Cy Young arm as much rest as needed after tossing a gem last time out in ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Houston Astros and Chicago White Sox were one of only 12 teams that went into the All-Star break having made money for baseball bettors at online sportsbooks. Dusty Baker’s squad pulled off an unbelievable comeback in their first half finale against the New York Yankees to avoid being swept, while the Pale Hose closed the first half on a five-game winning streak after busting the brooms out on the Orioles in Baltimore. Of the AL division leaders, it’s Tony LaRussa’s that will likely waltz it... 

  • BookMaker.eu Would you have believed it if told the Seattle Mariners would own a better record than the New York Yankees heading into the All-Star break of the 2021 MLB betting season? That’s the harsh reality Aaron Boone’s squad is faced with as it returns to the diamond to host the AL East leading Boston Red Sox in the standalone game at online sportsbooks coming out of the break. Sitting three-games over the breakeven point and in fourth place within the division, this is a crucial series for the Yankees ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Though the American League has come out the victor in each of the last seven Midsummer Classics, it’s the National League that rates out as the slight favorite at online sportsbooks to win this year’s installment of the All-Star Game. That comes off as a bit surprising to me knowing full well a number of excellent starting pitchers won’t be making an appearance in the game due to injury or having recently pitched. Pair that with a loaded AL roster, it looks to me like MLB bettors are getting an ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Shohei Ohtani is listed as the favorite to win the Home Run Derby on Monday, July 12th at Coors Field in Colorado on ESPN. Ohtani leads the league in home runs and he will be making history in this year’s All-Star game, as he becomes the first player to be elected to the game as a pitcher and as a hitter. Ohtani will have some tough competition in this year’s Home Run Derby, as... 

  • BookMaker.eu Rejoice Cubs fans! The losing streak is finally over! After taking it to Zack Wheeler and the Phillies on Wednesday night, new life has been breathed into a fledgling Chicago Cubs team that now has some major work to do if it’s to get back in the thick of the NL Central race. Though the St. Louis Cardinals were unable to sweep the San Francisco Giants, Mike Shildt’s squad will still invade the “Friendly Confines” more confident after taking two of three from the current NL West leaders. Last it ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Don’t look now, but the defending World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers are on another one of their patented runs that solidifies it being the choice of the linemakers to win yet another title at online sportsbooks. After busting out the brooms on what was a white hot Washington Nationals team over the weekend, LA entered the opener of this extended series having come out victorious in each of their last nine ball games. The same can’t and won’t be said of the Marlins who’ve come out victori... 

  • BookMaker.eu After getting rolled up and smoked in the opener and being forced to stare back at Aaron Nola and Zack Wheeler in the next two games, it’s highly possible the Chicago Cubs will be looking to avoid getting swept by the Philadelphia Phillies when the series concludes Thursday night. Should that be the case, Dave Ross’s squad will be in the midst of a prolonged 12-game losing streak that could’ve pushed the team 10-games in back of the NL Central leading Milwaukee Brewers. On the flipside, the Phil... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Subway Series will wrap under the lights of ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball telecast when the New York Mets send Tylor Megill to the bump to square off against Jameson Taillon and the New York Yankees. The Mets have lived up to preseason expectations through the first three months holding a 3-game lead atop the NL East standings and sitting alongside the Dodgers and Padres as favorites to win the National League. The same can’t be said of Aaron Boone’s Yankees who’ve stumbled their way to a 41-... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Washington Nationals have inched their way back into the NL East pennant race by way of logging wins at online sportsbooks in 13 of their last 16 played games. In doing so, Dave Martinez’s troops only sat 3-games in back of the division leading Mets going into Wednesday’s rubber match with the Tampa Bay Rays. The reigning World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers just trimmed their deficit in the NL West by taking a pair from the front-running San Francisco Giants. It looks to only be a matt... 

  • BookMaker.eu With the amount of solid baseball the Dodgers and Padres have played over the last 10 or so days, you’d think the San Francisco Giants’ reign of the NL West would be on life support. That’s hardly been the case with Gabe Kapler’s troops continuing to rack up win after win at online sportsbooks. After taking two of three from the Oakland A’s over the weekend, San Fran still sits perched atop the division standings and continues to be the story of the baseball betting season by a country mile. The... 

  • BookMaker.eu The MLB betting week wraps in Tinseltown where the Los Angeles Dodgers will close out an extended four-game series against the Chicago Cubs at online sportsbooks. Both squads entered this series in second place of their respective divisions. LA will be out for a heavy dose of revenge after going into Wrigley and getting the brooms busted out on them back in early May. The over cashed in all three matchups with the Cubs averaging 5.7 runs per game while the Dodgers scored a grand total of nine ru... 

  • BookMaker.eu The logjam that continues to be the AL East will either get tighter or see more distance put between the teams on Saturday night when the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox collide in the second game of their weekend set under the lights of FOX’s nationally televised broadcast. Getting the call for the visitor’s will be Jordan Montgomery who gets a tough assignment against a BoSox offense currently batting .265 against left-handed pitching No. 5. Going for the home team will be right-hander Nat... 

  • BookMaker.eu The NL West was expected to be a two-horse between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres heading into the regular season.

Even so, it’s the two aforementioned teams that are still considered the favorites to possess division bragging rights when it’s all said and done. That makes the finale of this three-game set between the hated... 

  • BookMaker.eu Another week of baseball betting will be in the books at online sportsbooks following this week’s Sunday Night Baseball telecast when the St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves close their extended series out from Truist Park. Both squads have failed to live up to preseason expectations after 2+ months with the Redbirds sitting just a single game over .500 and the Braves three games under the breakeven point. The injury bug is largely to blame with it taking huge bites out of both pitching staff... 

  • BookMaker.eu Two premiere strikeout artists will cross paths at online sportsbooks on Saturday night when Lance Lynn squares off against Framber Valdez in the third of an extended four-game series between the Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros. Both teams had been playing some white hot baseball entering the series with Chicago and Houston winning eight of 12 played games in the month of June. Because of it, Tony LaRussa’s squad currently owns a 4.5-game lead atop the AL Central over the Cleveland Indians;... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Atlanta Braves entered the season as one of the favorites to win the NL East. It was also expected to be a bonafide threat to cash in on the World Series futures odds at online sportsbooks. Brian Snitker’s troops have failed to live up to the lofty expectations entering the 11th week of the baseball betting season sitting three games under the breakeven point. On the flipside, Alex Cora’s Boston Red Sox have seemingly come from out of nowhere to become one of the best investments in the game... 

  • BookMaker.eu The baseball betting season will be 10 weeks deep once the Sunday nighter between the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs wraps from Wrigley Field. At the outset of 2021, linemakers expected the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers to duke it out for NL Central bragging rights. The Cubs were nothing more than an afterthought in an expected rebuilding year. But that’s why they play the games folks! Entering Friday’s series opener, David Ross’s troops held a slim half-game lead over the Brew... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Washington Nationals currently bring up the rear of the NL East sitting eight-games under .500. There hasn’t been much to get excited about this team for most of the season, but Davey Martinez’s troops have been showing some signs of life of late. It entered Thursday’s series opener with the NL West leading San Francisco Giants off a hard-fought split with the Rays in Tampa Bay to move to 4-4 its last eight games since dropping five straight at online sportsbooks to close out the month of Ma... 

  • BookMaker.eu After splitting their last three matchups against the Mariners, Giants and A’s, the Los Angeles Angels could find themselves in a position to break that streak at home on Wednesday night when they host the Kansas City Royals in the third and final game of the series. Though each likely isn’t going to catch the frontrunner of their respective divisions, both KC and Anaheim find themselves firmly in the mix of cashing in on the Wild Card odds at online sportsbooks. The Royals currently sit 3-games...
