Baseball betting features the Subway interleague series of New York to bet on sports with as the Mets host the Yankees on the ESPN Sunday Night feature game. Baseball betting fans will have the choice of two teams that are in the thick of the playoff race to bet on sports with although both clubs have struggled recently.
The scheduled probable baseball betting starters for this one are right hander Chien-Ming Wang of the Yankees and right hander Livan Hernandez of the Mets. Hernandez has been the far better commodity to bet on sports with so far this season.
Wang had a baseball betting record of 0-5 with a disgraceful 12.30 earned run average. He did “improve” in his latest 3 baseball betting starts with an earned run average of 8.03 but went 0-2. He is 1-1 lifetime against the Mets with a 4.96 earned run average.
Hernandez had a baseball betting record of 5-1 with a 4.18 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he went 1-0 with a 3.72 earned run average. He is 0-3 lifetime against the Yankees with a 6.94 earned run average.
The New York Yankees, after being one of the hottest teams in all of baseball betting were cooled off in a 3 game sweep by the Boston Red Sox June 9-11, which cost them first place in the American League east. The Yankees have gotten phenomenal offensive production so far this season and ranked 2nd in runs scored per game with 5.49. Their pitching, however, has been a significant baseball betting liability as they had a staff earned run average of 4.65. Mark Teixeira had 20 home runs to pace the Bronx Bombers and Robinson Cano was hitting .309.
The New York Mets have gotten far better pitching than their subway rivals and have ranked in the top 10 for staff earned run average throughout the baseball betting season with a mark of 4.17. Hitting has been light, however, as Carlos Beltran led the team with just 8 home runs. David Wright had a high average of .344 to pace the lineup.
Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
