Friday’s Robust Sports Betting Line Moves


The way the battle lines have been drawn between the oddsmakers and the sports bettors today, it looks like the latest episode of the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s on the History Channel. We picked what appears to be the five best matchups and as always, review the tasty trend nuggets at the bottom of the page.


Milwaukee BrewersWashington ended one negative streak, but will seek to extend another in positive fashion. The Nationals closed their eight-game losing streak at Miller Park last night in the series opener and will attempt to win their seventh consecutive contest this evening. Baseball bettors are not convinced the Washington will be up to the task and altered them from +106 to +120. Besides the recent history, the Nats will face the Brewers Michael Fiers (3-4, 1.96 ERA), who has a major league-best 0.76 ERA since June 16. Washington is a solid 36-22 after a win this season. 3DW Position – Milwaukee wins

MLB – (969) OAKLAND at (970) BALTIMORE  7:05 EDT  CSCA, MASN

Baseball’s bet this month lost just for the third time in 19 tries on Thursday and will look to resume their smoldering ways in Baltimore. Oakland is a playoff team right now and will try to resume winning in amazing fashion. Manager Bob Melvin will hand the ball to former Clemson quarterback Jarrod Parker (7-4, 3.00), who’s played in big role in the team’s success. The Orioles snapped their three-game skid with an 8-2 whacking of Tampa Bay and is drawing the support of bettors. The O’s began at -104 and have been elevated to -115, which makes sense if you consider they are 9-2 after triumph of four or more runs. 3DW Position – Baltimore wins

MLB – (971) BOSTON at (972) N.Y. YANKEES  7:05 EDT  NESN, YES

With this being near the end of July, it’s hard to fathom this is Boston’s first trip into Yankee Stadium in 2012 for this always entertaining rivalry. With the Red Sox back in last place in the AL East and 4.5 games out of the last playoff spot, they need to start picking up the pace. “We definitely need to win the series,” slugger Adrian Gonzalez told the Red Sox’s official website. “That goes without saying. We need to win two out of three, if not try and sweep them.” Sportsbooks sent out the Red Sox around +150 and those betting on baseball thought that was too low and jettisoned them up to +164. Ichiro Suzuki will be making his debut in Yankee pinstripes and his new club is 12-2 after five or more consecutive road games this season. The Bronx Bombers are 9-1 this year after a day off. 3DW Position – New York wins

MLB – (975) CHIC. WHITE SOX at (976) TEXAS  8:05 EDT  WCIU, KTXA (side and total)

This sets up to be to be an intriguing series lid-lifter for two first place clubs. Chicago trots out Chris Sale (11-3, 2.37), who’s been a real bargain for the White Sox. He’ll oppose Yu Darvish (11-6, 3.88), who for the most part has met expectations for Texas and will play an even greater role with all the injuries to their starting staff. With the adjustments on the total, there are factors favoring the Rangers. This pitching matchup has caused the total to slip from 9 to 8.5 and Texas is 18-5 home when the total is 8 to 8.5. The Rangers have also been pumped up from -126 to -140 and will be playing with real revenge, having been swept in the Windy by the Sox in a Fourth of July series. 3DW Position – Chicago wins

MLB – (977) TAMPA BAY at (978) L.A. ANGELS  10:05 EDT  SUN, FSW

With a sinking total occurring between the Rays and Angels, one might expect a David Price vs. Jered Weaver confrontation. Instead, we have Alex Cobb (4-7, 5.05) taking on Dan Haren (7-8, 4.76), with the total down to eight. Tampa Bay just took their series at Baltimore and is 20-10 UNDER having won two of their last three games. L.A./2 hammered Kansas City 11-6 on Wednesday and is 12-2 UNDER at the Big A after scoring nine runs or more. The Rays have emerged victorious six straight times over the Halos and the UNDER is 5-1 in that span. 3DW Position – Play Under
