Your Western division summer double.

If you do one thing, this summer, as the song goes, wear sun screen. If you do two things, wear sun screen and place this double.

The Seattle Mariners to win the AL West doubled with the San Francisco Giants winning the NL West. Approximately 2-1 and 3-1 respectively. Dress it up any way you want. Call it your Western double. Call it your ‘King’ Felix special. Just place it. Then sit back and watch as you fall in love with ‘King’ Felix Hernandez, Cliff Lee, Matt Cain and Little Timmy Lincecum.

This just feels right. I have gone over each NL and AL division race and the two exciting, value bets that really stood out were the Mariners and Giants. Their odds are artificially inflated because there are the bloated, decaying corpses of the Angels and Dodgers in their way. Too harsh? Anaheim is dumping players for fun and LA, well, would you really trust the Dodgers with your money? Big names, bleak futures.

Take advantage of the bookmakers inability to identify two upward trending teams with brilliant rotations and young, talented lineups and hop on this divisional double. You could take it even further by placing a small ‘fun’ double on Seattle to win the AL and San Francisco to win the NL. Nowhere near as likely, but stupefying big, flashy odds.

Remember, this is coming from a Red Sox fan. I am not emotionally invested in either team (well, not yet anyway!) however you can’t ignore those shiny, sparkling rotations.

$10 gets you $90 when they both win.

Just remember you heard it here first.

Goofy, but, good..
