Bet on the MLBBaseball betting on the New York Yankees ended up with a nice profit after a terrible early start to the sports betting season as the Pinstripers ended up with the best record in the AL. Baseball betting will have the Bronx Bombers as the heavy sports betting favorite to win the American League and advance to the world series.
The Yankees opened up the brand new Yankee Stadium in style as they had a baseball betting record of 57-24 at home this year. Despite the sports betting reputation for their new stadium being a band box that allowed a ton of runs the Yankees actually went over the MLB betting odds total in just 35 home games this year.
The Yankees have the top ranked lineup in all of baseball betting and have multiple threats that can do damage. Derek Jeter demonstrated why he is the modern day “Pride of the Yankees” as he was hitting .333 with 107 runs scored, 18 home runs, 66 runs batted in, and 30 stolen bases.
The Yankees had a powerful baseball betting lineup that featured 7 players with at least 20 home runs led by Mark Teixeira’s 39. Teixeira had 122 runs batted in and 43 doubles. Robinson Cano was yet another baseball betting asset as he was hitting .322 with 25 home runs, 85 runs batted in, and 48 doubles. After a horrible start Alex Rodriguez recovered and had a good second half as he was hitting .282 with 28 home runs and 93 runs batted in. A-Rod will be looking to finally be a baseball betting asset in the post season.
CC Sabathia leads the pitching staff and was proven to be money well spent after coming over last off season from Milwaukee. Sabathia had a fine baseball betting campaign with a mark of 19-8 and a 3.37 earned run average. The rotation is bolstered by AJ Burnett who was 12-9 with a 4.10 earned run average and Andy Pettitte who was 14-8 with a 4.16 earned run average. Mariano Rivera is one of the top closers in all of baseball betting as he had 44 saves with a 1.79 earned run average with just 2 blown saves.
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.
