For Wednesday’s online sportsbook betting, I decided to make a few ridiculous gambles and unfortunately for me and my sportsbook account balance, things didn’t turn out so well. With one shot-in-the-dark bet to take the Kansas City Royals to stop the New York Yankees win streak, and another bet to take Josh Beckett and the Boston Red Sox to overcome the Cleveland Indians, I knew that Wednesday’s sports betting had a pretty good chance of flopping. Kansas City got blown up 7-1 (as I could have expected, but just wanted to see if I could call the game that ended the Yanks’ win streak), and Josh Beckett was just out pitched by his younger counterpart as the Red Sox lost 1-0. Both pitchers went eight innings with only four hits given up, however one solo shot by Franklin Gutierrez was all it took to snap that sports bet in half as well. Oh well; it is very true that you win some and you lose some, and if you’ve got a bit of money saved up from previous online winnings sometimes it’s fun to break up the monotony of relatively safe bets in favor of some more ridiculous wagers. I certainly don’t mind losing a few five spots in my online sports betting account, just so long as there are plenty of opportunities to recoup the money on down the road!
For Thursday, it’s as always a great chance to get down to your favorite online sports book and find some Major League Baseball action to wager on. I guess my only really good advice of the day is to stay away from betting on the Seattle Mariners, who are currently going through one of the worst skids in baseball right now. They couldn’t get a win at the moment if the other team wasn’t even playing. It might be a good idea to bet on the Oakland A’S tonight, a normally risky idea however they are cashing in on the Mariners during their collapse, especially after the downtrodden M’s were just crushed in a series with the Texas Rangers. The Cubs meanwhile are on the opposite end of the spectrum, as are the Yankees. Both teams are cruising right now, as the Cubs look to sweep the St. Louis Cardinal at home, as well as the Yankees finishing up in Kansas City. San Francisco won a game last night, and has rookie sensation Tim Linecum on the hill against the Braves which makes one wonder if the possibility of the Giants winning two straight games is actually worth betting on this evening.
There are certainly some tough calls tonight, especially with team riding winning and losing streaks. Betting with the flow is always a good way to go about things, of course until the team you are riding on decides that the winning streak or losing skid is ready to come crashing to a halt. For Thursday, place your bets wisely, and make sure to not follow too closely to my online sports betting advice. Sometimes I like to get a little crazy; sometimes it pays off, other times not so much. Either way, it’s always a fun time betting on sports provided you don’t shoot to break the bank on every wager placed. Enjoy Thursday’s games, and as always thank you for stopping by our website and betting on the best online sportsbooks and casinos the internet has to offer.
