Royals vs Orioles ALCS Betting Odds

royals-vs-orioles-alcsThe American League Championship Series is all set to resume on Friday October 10th as the AL East champion Baltimore Orioles are set to host the red hot Kansas City Royals as they’ve continued their World Series’ aspirations in surprising fashion.

The Royals are riding high fresh off of a stunning series sweep of the top ranked Los Angeles Angels on Sunday night and will now set their sites on the Baltimore Orioles.  The Orioles are coming off a three game sweep of their own, as they single-handedly dismantled the Detroit Tigers, as they completed the sweep against pitcher David Price at Comerica Park yesterday.

Baltimore’s off-season acquisition of OF Nelson Cruz has paid off serious dividends thus far as Cruz has powered the O’s offense with a .500 batting average to go along with his 2 home runs and 5 RBI’s in the three game series vs the Tigers.  Cruz will look to keep the power surge rolling as his Baltimore team will once again play host to yet another American League rival as they look to advance to their first World Series in decades.

Bet365 already has the Orioles favored to make it to the World Series as the seven game series betting has Baltimore at (1.71) while the Royals are paying (2.20).

The Royals will likely rely heavily on their series clinching SP James Shields to start game 1 while the Orioles have not yet named their starter for the opener however it will likely be Chris Tillman, who started game 1 of the ALDS for Baltimore.

James “Big Game” Shields will have to be just that for the Royals if they want any chance of stealing home field advantage from the Orioles.  Shields has been huge for Kansas City so far this post-season as he pitched the one game sudden death play in game against Oakland and yesterdays ALDS clinching thriller against the Tigers.

The Royals may in fact be getting noticed by the rest of the world now as legitimate title contenders, as Bet365.com has KC paying (4.33-1) odds to win the World Series.  The Orioles are currently sitting atop the perch of the betting world as they are paying (3.20-1) odds to win outright.

Bet365.com also offers a variety of individual game bets and player props for each game of the series.  Further more, Bet365 Canada offers unique series, and futures betting odds such as “when will the series finish?” allowing you to make wagers on whether or not the series will be completed in the specified amount of games.
