PBL Betting Odds:
Betting on the Fubon Guardians (-181)
4-8 Regular Season Record
The Fubon Guardians aren’t faring to well at the moment. The sit at the bottom of the four-team league with a .333 win percentage. They lost this week’s two-game series against the Rakuten Monkeys (3-0, 5-3), simply unable to get performance from their offense. The last time Fubon played the Uni-President Lions they lost 9-5, but in the game prior they won emphatically by a final score of 13-2, which means they can certainly win if they can simply get their bats to work. The sportsbook thinks they can pull of a win this Friday, pricing them at -181 to beat the Uni Lions. They are also listed at -125 with a -1.5 spread.
Pitcher Henry Sosa is expected to start the Guardians’ weekend campaign, which is why this last place team is actually favored over the Lions for Friday. Will his arm be enough to elevate them to a win?
Betting on the Uni-President Lions (+138)
6-7 Regular Season Record
The Uni-President Lions enjoyed a big 12-6 win over the Chinatrust Brothers on Thursday, giving them some momentum going into Friday against Fubon. The Lions have moved up to second best in the league, with a .462 win percentage. Uni-President also won their last meeting with Fubon, winning 9-5. The Lions are clawing in the runs over the past week averaging 8.86 runs over the last seven games. With the OVER/UNDER set at 11.5 runs it’s a safe bet on the over when Uni is involved. And what about their odds to win against Fubon? Surprisingly they are underdogs with a price of +138 which many bettors will look to capitalize on.
The Uni-President Lions become a .500 baseball team with a win over the Guardians.
