As the World Series gets closer and closer, world series baseball betting is becoming a popular topic among sports fans. Legal Baseball Betting has been a common pastime for some time, and the competition is especially gripping this season. The MLB will be holding its 110th World Series in 2014, and it should be one of the most exciting matches in recent memory.
Both teams involved in this World Series match are wild card teams. Baseball history is full of teams and players setting unusual precedents, but matches between wild card teams are always intrinsically exciting. Many people have been loyal fans of the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals for years, especially people that are from Kansas City or San Francisco. In this World Series, both wild card teams will have the opportunity to shine in a particularly tense competition.
World Series Baseball Betting is even more exciting when the World Series match in question involves wild card teams. For one thing, since both teams are wild cards, they are essentially on equal footing. In situations where one team is a wild card and one team has a more consistent history of winning, few people are even going to bet on the wild card in the first place. Choosing to bet on the wild card in that situation may involve slightly too much risk for even a dedicated fan. Betting needs to involve the right level of risk in order to be truly satisfying. A bet about whether or not the Kansas City Royals will beat the San Francisco Giants is truly suspenseful, since it is generally difficult to say who is going to win.
The San Francisco Giants have been involved in a World Series match between two wild cards before this point. Dedicated baseball fans, particularly fans of the San Francisco Giants, will remember that they played against the Anaheim Angels during the 2002 World Series. It was the first time that the Anaheim Angels had ever made it to the World Series, and their fans couldn’t have been more excited. The Anaheim Angels surprised sports fans everywhere by actually winning the World Series of 2002. It is possible that the 2014 World Series will be just as exciting, and it is also possible that the San Francisco Giants will be victorious on this occasion.
The San Francisco Giants won the World Series in 1954. They lost the 1962 World Series to the New York Yankees. In the 1989 World Series, the Oakland Athletics not only beat the San Francisco Giants, but they actually won all four games in a clean World Series sweep. The San Francisco Giants have made it to the World Series before, but it has not worked out in their favor. It will be something of a historic moment if they do win. However, if the Kansas City Royals win, the 2014 World Series will be even more similar to the 2002 World Series. One way or another, sports fans that enjoy World Series baseball betting will remember this game for years to come.
Chelsea have spent a reported £20 million on a 28-year old Brazilian left-back who only has four caps for his country.
José Mourinho knows what he’s brought to Stamford Bridge with the signing of Filipe Luís this summer. He knows that he’s made that Chelsea defence even stronger than they were last season.
Filipe Luís was a key part of Atlético Madrid’s surprise La Liga title win last season – a regular in Diego Simeone’s back four that conceded the fewest goals in Spain last season.
Unlike the traditional Brazilian left-back – a Roberto Carlos or Marcelo that are attack-minded and reliant on pace to get back into defensive positions, Filipe Luís is actually a defence first full-back.
The Brazilian will turn 29 before he makes his Premier League debut. That is still four years younger than Ashley Cole who was released over the summer but certainly not young by football standards.
Filipe Luís is a tackling machine who covers his area of the pitch very well. Opponents in La Liga last season did not have a great deal of success dribbling past him either.
Provided he replaces César Azpilicueta as expected, he will provide stronger protection to the Chelsea goalkeeper. Playing alongside John Terry also makes for the possibility of a fantastic partnership at Stamford Bridge.
As strong defences make good title contenders, Chelsea’s price at 3.00 with Betfair to win the Premier League currently suggests the public believe José Mourinho is building the 2014-15 champions this summer.
It didn’t appear there was too much José Mourinho could do to improve his defence at the end of last season after conceding only 27 goals in 38 Premier League matches last season. The Portuguese manager has not taken any chances though, making a number of switches.
Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has returned from a three-year loan spell in Madrid to compete with Petr Čech for the number one spot. Filipe Luís has been added at left-back and David Luiz has been sold to Paris Saint-Germain to raise a cool £50 million this summer.
At 6′0”, the Brazilian defender is taller than both Azpilicueta and Ashley Cole. Mourinho likes his tal full-backs for defending set pieces.
Chelsea are now a Sami Khedira or a Paul Pogba short to partner Nemanja Matić in what could be the platform for the strongest defence in world football, with a tactical manager that knows how to set up his team to defend.
Homer Bailey, the 27 years old American professional baseball player, playing for Cincinnati Reds from 2007, is very close to get a long-term contract.
Bailey’s settlement hearing is programmed for Thursday. As of last week, there was a large coldness in the discussions between the two sides, but that distinction appears to have been bridged as a hearing appeared closer.
Bailey, starting pitcher, would not expose the details of his possible contract, but a report from the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Sunday night said it could be worth about $100 million over six years. If the Reds aren’t capable to sign Bailey beyond 2014, he could become a free agent after ending of the season. As the hearing day draws closer, Bailey says he hasn’t been getting further tensed or stressed.
According to Major League Baseball official site, in his negotiation case, Bailey filed for $11.6 million, while the Reds had opposed at $8.7 million. One year ago, the Reds tried to sign Bailey long term but couldn’t get it completed. They avoided settlement with a contract of $5.35 million for one year.
Bailey has been with the Reds business since he was a first-round Draft pick in 2004. Since his big introduction in 2007, he has a 49-45 lifetime record with a 4.25 ERA.
