Bet on the MLBBaseball betting fans have seen the New York Yankees roar back to win 3 consecutive sports betting matchups with the Philadelphia Phillies to take a commanding 3-1 World Series lead. Baseball betting action resumes tonight as the defending World Series champion Phillies try to stave off elimination and keep the series alive.
The probable starters for Monday night’s baseball betting matchup are right hander AJ Burnett of the Yankees and left hander Cliff Lee of the Phillies. Burnett had a regular season sports betting record of 13-9 with a 4.04 earned run average. So far in the playoffs he has a record with the MLB odds of 1-0 in 4 appearances with a 3.55 earned run average. Burnett won his previous World Series start in game 2 as he allowed 1 earned run in 7 innings with 9 strikeouts in the Yankees 3-1 baseball betting payout last Thursday.
Cliff Lee had a regular season baseball betting record of 7-4 with a 3.39 earned run average. In the baseball betting post season Lee is 3-0 with a 0.54 earned run average in 4 appearances. Lee had a phenomenal baseball betting performance in game one of the World Series as he allowed 0 earned runs and just 6 hits while striking out 10 in the Phillies 6-1 baseball betting payout.
The Phillies are well known throughout baseball betting as a great comeback team and that will now be put to the ultimate test as they must win 3 consecutive games against the powerful Yankees to repeat as World Series champions. Philadelphia did have 43 come from behind wins in the regular season and 5 more in the post season so they definitely have the proven resiliency.
“I think we take pride in being resilient and the way we bounce back,” said Phillies manager Charlie Manuel. “I know that we’re going to come out (Monday) and play to win. I know I’ve seen us go through it before.”
“We’re in the World Series now. We’re down, but you know what, we’re still breathing.”The Phillies offense will have to awaken for them to stay alive. They have just 4 runs per game in the World Series compared to an average of 6.1 runs per game in their playoff series this year against Colorado and Los Angeles.
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.
