Dodgers Look to Mount Another Baseball Wagering Win StreakPosted by: Anthony Yaylor
While baseball wagering players prepare to gamble on Wednesday’s action, we do so with a tear in our eye. Anthony Young, remembered for losing 27 straight games for the New York Mets, passed away in Houston at the age of 51. Young is an MLB record holder for that losing streak, and although he wasn’t the most talented pitcher, we will go down in our sports betting memory.
Wednesday’s MLB betting action will kick off in the evening, with the Phillies-Mariners matchup taking center stage around 4 o’clock. Let’s mulch over Tuesday’s results before we take a look at any favorable sportsbook lines this Wednesday.
Tuesday’s Tale of the Tape
Tuesday’s MLB action gave way to some pretty thrilling results. The Tampa Bay Rays and Pittsburgh Pirates had a heated match to kick things off, with the Rays beating Pittsburgh 4-2 in the end.
The Texas Rangers faced the Indians in Game 2 of their series. After Cleveland blew Texas out 15-9 this Monday, the Rangers were able to bounce back by picking up a low-scoring 2-1 win over the Indians.
The Orioles and Blue Jays had a pretty vehement match as well, with Baltimore beating their Canadian counterpart 3-1. The Brewers beat the Reds 6-8, the Marlins overcame the Mets 6-3, and the Tigers won over the Royals 5-3.
These were not the only competitive matches of the night however, as the White Sox upset the Yanks 4-3, the A’s did the same to Houston 6-4 and the Phillies shocked the Mariners 8-2. Overall, Tuesday was a great day for sports betting fans.
There were some blowouts in the mix, as the Washington Nationals were able to avenge their Monday night loss by picking up a dominant 6-1 win over the Chicago Cubs. Likewise, the Red Sox delivered a 9-2 beating to the Minnesota Twins, bringing Boston one step closer to the coveted No. 1 seed in the AL East.
One of the most interesting baseball wagering results came out of the Los Angeles-Los Angeles pairing. The Dodgers had suffered a shocking 4-0 shutout at the hands of the Angels this Monday. Nonetheless, Los Angeles made sure to return the favor to their Anaheim rival by beating the Angels by the same score (4-0) this Tuesday night. The Angels and Dodgers will take to the diamond once again this Wednesday, and the contest should be entertaining in every definition of the word. Let’s take a look at who the sportsbook lines are siding with.

Los Angeles Dodgers
Despite a strong push from the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Dodgers have been able to hang onto their slight lead atop the NL West. Los Angeles comes into this contest sporting a 52-27 record that gives them a 1 ½ game lead over 2nd place Arizona. Los Doyers are looking to qualify for the postseason for the 5th straight season in 2017.
Before they faced off with the Angels, Los Angeles was busy polishing a 10-game win streak. Since that momentum got snapped by the Angles, the Dodgers will be looking to mount another streak this Wednesday. To help them get there LA will be sending Hyun-Jin Ryu to the mound. Ryu is 3-6 on the season with a 4.30 ERA and 1.40 WHIP. With Ryu on the mound, the Angels could get their second baseball wagering upset of this series.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels glide into this contest flashing a 41-40 record that ranks them 3rd in the AL West. The Halos are currently 12 ½ games behind the division leading Houston Astros, which makes it seem like the Angels will not be qualifying for the postseason this year, which would make it three straight seasons without a playoff appearance for the Wings.
The Angels will be starting Alex Meyer against the Dodgers. Meyer is 3-4 on the season with a 4.20 ERA and 1.46 WHIP.
