So the Tigers are off to a hell of a start by steamrolling through the
Red Sox and staying undefeated for the firsts 3 games of the 162 game schedule.
There is of course much more baseball to be played this year but it is still a
valiant effort against a formidable opponent. This comes as no surprise to the
bookies thought as they have adjusted their lines for Detroit to win the AL
from +800 to a very strong +400.
As mentioned earlier there is a grueling season to be played and
history doesn’t prove that a strong start will result in a successful finish.
Let’s look back at the Red Sox last year when they tipped of the season by
going 0-6 and 2-10. Everyone in the Boston camp was having a nervous breakdown
at first, until of course the Red Sox crushed everything in their path for the
whole summer, only to collapse again come September. Baseball is a game of endurance;
with such a challenging schedule nearly every team in the league will have
their improbable runs at glory on any given month of the MLB game calendar.
At the end of the day though it matters when people put their money
where their mouth is and with most punters backing the Tigers to get over 93.5
season wins and going from +1600 to a cozy +800 to win the 2012 World Series,
you have to say their play in the 1st three games of their schedule
has warranted such respect from the sports betting world.
Another team not to fall asleep on should definitely be the Angels as
they went from a measly +2800 to a very respectful +650 to win the big prize
2012. All in all baseball season is by far one of the most dreadful
professional sports endeavors an athlete can put himself through and this whole
picture can have a completely different look come playoff time.
