Baseball Betting Suspended Due To Inclement Weather Up North

Gamblers do not have much to bet on this time of year with the NFL, college football and basketball, the NBA, and the NHL all on hiatus. Major League Baseball is the only major US sport that bettors have an opportunity to gamble on, and even that is being trimmed down this weekend.

Hurricane Irene is preparing to batter the Northeast, and baseball executives have taken the initiative to call of games before the harsh weather strikes. Games have been cancelled in Philadelphia, New York, and Baltimore. The canceled games also were involving teams that have become gamblers' favorites this season.

The New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies are almost locks to make the playoffs this season, and both have been good to bettors. The Yankees and Phillies have won far more often than they have lost this year, and it has led gamblers into a trust zone. The two teams, however, have both been washed out against their respective opponents, Baltimore and Florida.

It is ironic that the Marlins are experiencing a hurricane related cancellation, and they are not playing at home. It is usually Florida, and not the Northeast that has to deal with weather issues relating to hurricane activity. The Marlins and Phillies will be forced to play more games down the stretch than there are days remaining in the season.

Other sporting events have either been cut short or have been cancelled as well. The Barklay's was expected to bring action in to Las Vegas sports books, but golf officials shortened the tournament to fifty-four holes in order to avoid having Sunday be wiped out due to the hurricane. Dustin Johnson paid off bettors who did get their Barklay's wagers in when he won the tournament Saturday afternoon.

The good news for gamblers is that they will have an opportunity to place bets on the NFL Saturday evening. The teams are all gearing up for what is usually the most competitive week of the preseason, with starters playing deeper into the games than in any other preseason battle.

The college football season will also provide gamblers with more betting options when it kicks off this week. The premiere match up of the weekend features Oregon and LSU, ranked third and fourth, respectively. The Tigers will be without starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson after he was suspended indefinitely. The quarterback was arrested on Friday for his role in a bar fight in Louisiana.
