A pair of rare road favorites highlight the baseball betting menus Thursday. And with aces Kyle Lohse and Justin Verlander in those positions, many bettors will avoid the home underdog angle.

A pair of crazy finishes highlighted Wednesday's baseball playoff betting as the Yankees and Athletics both won.

Will things normalize today with four games on the MLB odds menu? Can Mat Latos continue his domination of the Giants and can the Orioles rebound from that crushing loss with Joe Saunders on the hill?

Both the Cardinals and Tigers are road favorites, a rarity for a Game 4 or Game 5 scenario. But the Tigers send Justin Verlander and the Cards have 17-3 Kyle Lohse going.

And do you dare bet against Oakland after their season of rallies, capped by their Game 4 heroics in the ninth inning?
