Betting on San Francisco Giants in the MLB

Following a long wait, baseball fans all over the world will now be looking forward to the start of the 2014 MLB season. The season is due to get underway in March, but people won’t be waiting until then to start getting their bets in on which sides they think can taste Division, League and World Series glory in 2014. At this pre-season stage, the Giants are one of a number of teams ranked just outside the favorites for the National League by bookies, but are they a solid gamble for this, or anything else?

There is certainly no arguing with the weight of history, when it comes to the Giants, as their glittering trophy cabinet can attest to, justifying their 22/1 odds. They have won a remarkable 22 National League pennants and 7 World Series titles making them look an attractive bet to any outsider. Of course history does not necessarily count for anything in the present day, but the Giants tasted success in both as recently as 2012, Last season was a real disappointment by their standards and anyone who had bet on them will have shared their pain. However the bookmakers seem to think it will be unlikely to be repeated this season. They would seem a strong baseball betting pick for either the League pennant or the World Series, but their 2013 season showed the risks of outright gambling – even on one of the favorites. This is why you are probably better off playing Hot Shot at an online casino right at the moment.

It may not be the only baseball slot machine on the market, but – as its name suggests – Hot Shot at www.jackpotcity.co.uk has the edge. The blending of the visuals and the audio effects are a big part of the draw, with imagery of players, baseball caps and cheerleaders – all set against the backdrop of a baseball field. These are combined with sound effects like a bat hitting a ball and the cheers from the crowd, and make for an appealing game experience for a baseball fan. None of this comes at the expense of the jackpot however, with Hot Shot boasting a $2000 one, while mobile casino apps mean it is also handier than ever to play on the move.
