Baseball betting action Monday features the ESPN game between Oakland and the Yankees in baseball odds action from the new Yankee Stadium, New York. Baseball betting fans will have their choice of two teams that were in the red against the baseball odds to start the season.
The baseball betting probable starters for this game are lefthander Dana Eveland of Oakland and lefthander Andy Pettitte of New York. Eveland has gotten off to a shaky start against the baseball odds as he has a 6.75 earned run average in 2 starts this season.
Pettitte has been one of the few consistent bright spots for the Yankees thus far in the young baseball betting season as he was 1-0 with a 2.51 earned run average. Pettitte has good career numbers against the Athletics as he is 10-5 lifetime with a 3.27 earned run average.
The Oakland Athletics lost 7 out of their first 12 baseball betting decisions and went over the total in 8 of those games. The baseball betting weakness of Oakland has been their offense which ranked just 26th overall in the majors.
Oakland has gotten good pitching, however, as they ranked 6th overall in baseball and that is what has prevented them from falling completely on their faces out of the gate. Oakland is coming off a road series at Toronto in which they lost 2 out of 3 games. They will head home after a three game series at Yankee Stadium.
The New York Yankees lost 6 out of their first 12 games and have given gamblers a great reminder as to why they are such a poor value as they were down -$302 dollars based on $100 units despite a break even straight up record.
As one of the most popular teams in baseball betting the Yankees often force gamblers to make expensive overlays on them. Pitching has been the baseball betting weakness of New York as they ranked just 27th overall in the majors. Nick Swisher has led the lineup with 4 home runs and 11 runs batted in. The Yankees went over the baseball betting total in 9 of their first 12 games.
