Baseball betting Diamondbacks latest Arizona team to impress

Baseball betting - Diamondbacks latest Arizona team to impress

Last week I praised Bobby Cox and his Atlanta Braves on their 6-3 road trip and suggested they were beginning to play like manager Cox’s previous NL East teams. Then the Dodgers and Arizona came to Turner Field and suddenly the Braves are 1-6 on this current homestand.

The Braves got swept by Arizona on the weekend and the Diamondbacks are beginning to play great ball and this comes on the heels of the Phoenix Suns getting turfed from the NBA Playoffs.

Before the Diamondbacks departed on a 10-game trip, manager Bob Melvin called the excursion to Cincinnati, New York and Atlanta a measuring stick that would give his team an idea of just how good it really is.

After finishing it off with a 7-3 record, topped by a four-game sweep of the Braves at Turner Field, the results are in: Arizona is a pretty good ballclub and just might do a little bit more than hang around at the top of the National League West.

The four-game sweep over the Braves marked just the third time in Diamondbacks history that they have accomplished such a feat on the road. The 7-3 record, meanwhile, ties a club mark for the best trip of a road campaign involving at least 10 games.

The pitching staff posted a 2.35 ERA during the 10 games, allowing 24 earned runs in 92 innings, and in the past three games alone, the offense has delivered 10 home runs. Overall, the Diamondbacks outscored their opponents 56-24.

The Diamondbacks continue to get sterling performances from their starting pitchers, as Sunday's 9-3 win over the Braves marked the 13th "quality start" from the rotation in the past 15 games. Right-hander Miguel Batista was the latest to work at least six innings and allow three or fewer runs, and during this particular stretch, the starters have fashioned a 1.94 ERA.

Batista, who allowed three earned runs through 6 2/3 innings in improving to 6-2, got help from an offense that pounded out 14 hits and four home runs for the second consecutive day. The Diamondbacks swept the Braves in four games at Turner Field, the first time that's happened to Atlanta at home or on the road since the Phillies did it to them in 1995.

RHP Brandon Webb needs to pitch 2 2/3 scoreless innings when he starts Monday against the visiting Phillies to establish a Diamondbacks record for pitching consecutive scoreless innings. Webb is on 25 and counting. Andy Benes holds the club mark with 27 1/3 straight scoreless frames during the team's inaugural season in 1998.

.099 — Eric Byrnes' batting average differential on June 1, 2006, compared to June 1, 2005. Byrnes hit .226 after the first two months of the season last year and after June 1 this year, was hitting .325. It's the biggest jump of any player in the major leagues.

Sports Betting And Financial Management

Sports Betting And Financial Management

Generally, sports betting is seen as a leisure activity with little stress on earning big time. Since it is viewed as speculative and addictive, the sports betting is treated more of a pastime. But if you learn some financial management skills, sports book could be the place for you to make a fortune. With diverse options provided by online casinos ranging from poker, horse racing, bingo etc., your financial portfolio can also be inflated by online betting involving different sports.

Setting the goals is perhaps the first step in every new business venture. In this case, you must be sure as to what you expect from the online sportsbook before joining one of them. Having set your financial objectives, make sure you gamble only with the spare money that you can risk speculating. Accordingly, create the accounts in consonance with your spending power.

The next step is to create a withdrawal plan. You must be sure to withdraw a planned sum of earnings regularly and re-invest a certain sum in speculation. This goal must be strictly adhered to even if you are winning like a maniac or losing like a pauper.

After setting a withdrawal plan, start sports betting in singles only. A word of caution here. Do not bet accumulators, since your possibilities of winning are receding significantly with every game added in the accumulator. If you really want to place a higher bet, never do this with more than 20% of your balance and only if you are so sure in your bet that you do not want to loose the chance.

The next important tip for managing finances in betting is to take a break if the going gets tough. If you are losing consistently, don’t increase the bets for you could end up in financial red.

And lastly, never be too greedy and stick to your plans. Modify the plans only if you have achieved what you had set out for and still have the extra money to bet.
