As is the case every weekend, it must come to an end at some point in time. With Mondays usually being the longest day of the week, it’s always nice to have plenty of sports betting action available, and a couple of Major League Baseball games to watch when work is finally over. For this Monday, it happened to not be such a lucky day for this writer, as a few placed wagers at our featured online sportsbook at Sportsbetting.com didn’t turn out so hot. On the tail end of one four team parlay wager sat my Seattle Mariners, who are in a series this week with the Texas Rangers. Thinking that Seattle would have no problem scoring a win against the dismal Rangers team apparently was a bad idea, as Seattle blew a lead to lose 8-7 in Arlington Monday evening. The Dodgers crushed the Astros, while the Reds and Rockies clutched up, however my home team let me down in what would have been a nice little Monday evening payoff on our of our best online sports betting sites. Instead, out 10 bucks on the first bet, I just barely broke even on the day with the Yankees and the Braves both winning to secure a small wager parlay bet.
There are a number of great potential divisional races going on right now, and there is really no better time to get into Major League Baseball action than at the present. Breaking down the action around the league, Boston and New York have synched up together, and presently have seven and a half games between them for the lead in the AL East. The Yankees will look to gain ground as they continue their series with the Royals, however, with Boston winning against Cleveland and not dropping games as before, it may yet be too early to think that the Yanks will catch the BoSox in the race for the AL East. Meanwhile, the races in the AL Central and West divisions now have two teams within two games of the lead, and with both the Indians and the Mariners failing this evening to gain ground, it is up Detroit and the L.A. Angels at the moment to distance themselves in first place. One thing is for sure is that the race for the AL wild card will get awfully crazy come closer to October, as there is no telling who will be on top of their respective divisions by then.
It is just about the same in the National League at this point, as teams like the Cubs and the Braves are now starting to challenge division leads that have been in place since the start of the year. Out in the NL West, only 5.5 games span from first to third place, as the Dodgers, Padres and Rockies will be in a fight to the finish for top honors in their division. Check out all the teams making a move this week, and capitalize on some streaking teams to payout when betting on sports.
