Bet on the MLBBaseball betting on the Sunday night feature game will be on one of the hottest rivalries to bet on sports anywhere and also a game with playoff implications. Baseball betting on the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will feature one of the best possible pitching matchups to bet on sports with from Fenway Park, Boston.
New York left hander CC Sabathia is the scheduled probable starter for the Yankees and Boston right hander Josh Beckett is the probable sports betting starter for the Red Sox. This should be quite a pitcher’s duel to bet on sports with. Sabathia had a baseball betting record of 13-7 with a 3.64 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he was razor sharp with a baseball betting mark of 3-0 with a 1.14 earned run average. In his career Sabathia is 3-5 against Boston with a 3.57 earned run average.
Beckett had a baseball betting record of 14-4 with a 3.10 earned run average. In his last 3 baseball betting appearances he went 1-0 with a 4.19 earned run average. In his baseball betting career against the Yankees he was 9-4 but with a rather high 5.03 earned run average.
After a sluggish start to the season the Yankees have been one of the biggest baseball betting money makers throughout the summer. From August 2 through August 18 the Yankees went 13-3 to maintain their dominance in the American League. They swept a 4 game series over the Red Sox August 6-9 at Yankee Stadium. New York was 34-27 in road games this year. The Yankees ranked 2nd in the majors for run production but 16th overall in staff earned run average at 4.29. Mark Teixeira supplied the power in the lineup with 30 home runs.
The Red Sox were a dominant 38-18 at Fenway Park this year. While they fell 7 games behind the Yankees in mid August they were still in the wild card hunt. Boston was a well balanced team that ranked 5th in run production and 9th in staff earned run average. Jason Bay led the Bosox in homers with 26.
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.
