Run Line Baseball Betting Continues This Friday!Posted by: Mike Davis
As Friday rolls around, MLB betting players will have an opportunity to end the week on a high note by taking advantage of the lucrative run line baseball betting action bookies are offering to close out the week. Before we take a look at the best betting options this Friday, let’s mulch over Thursday’s results.
Thursday’s MLB Betting Outcome
Thursday provided a surplus of lopsided contests. Out of 12 contests that Major League Baseball had on the schedule, only three contests were decided by two runs or less. In all the other matchups, a winner was decided by a decisive margin.
A good majority of the MLB betting community tuned in for the Yankees Red Sox matchup, just because of the historic precedent of the rivalry. Unfortunately, Thursday’s rendition proved to be less than thrilling as New York whooped Boston 9-1, further solidifying their lead atop the AL East.
The Yankees weren’t the only team to deliver a blowout this past Thursday. The Los Angeles Angels blew the Detroit Tigers out of the water 11-4 and the Arizona Diamondbacks did the same to the San Diego Padres 15-3. The most contentious contest of the night was the matchup between the Seattle Mariners and the Minnesota Twins. The Twins scraped by 2-1.
The Arizona Diamondbacks, who lit up the scoreboard yesterday, will have the opportunity to deliver another blowout this Friday. The Diamondbacks will face the leaders of the NL Central, the Milwaukee Brewers, in a three-game series. Let’s see what the MLB sports odds have to say about Game 1 of this matchup.

The Brewers came into this season riding a 5-year postseason appearance drought. Nevertheless, the way Milwaukee is competing this season makes it seem like the franchise will be able to put an end to that drought in 2017. The Brewers are currently sitting on a 32-29 record that ranks them 1st in the NL Central, as well as 5th in the National League. Milwaukee cannot afford a slip up if they’re looking to retain their current ranking, since the Chicago Cubs are 1-game behind the Brewers.
To help keep them at the top of the division, Milwaukee will be starting Zach Davies against Arizona. Davies is 6-3 on the season with a 4.69 ERA.
Like the Brewers, it’s been a few years (5) since Arizona made the postseason. However, Arizona isn’t in the worst position to make a legitimate playoff run. The Diamondbacks are currently sitting on a 37-25 record that ranks them second in the NL West, 2 games behind division leading Colorado. Likewise, Arizona owns a 1-game lead over third-place Los Angeles.
To help get a win over the Brewers, the Diamondbacks will send Randall Delgado to the mound. Delgado is 1-1 on the season with a 3.24 ERA.
