Bet on the MLBBaseball betting fans should have a phenomenal 2009 sports betting matchup for the World Series between the Phillies and Yankees this week. Baseball betting appeal is high for both teams as the Phillies are the defending World Series champions and looking better than ever while the Yankees are a powerful sports betting commodity.
The Philadelphia Phillies feature better pitching for this year’s baseball betting post season than they did last season. When you add the improved pitching to a lineup that is one of the best and most productive in all of sports betting you have a lethal threat to beat the MLB betting odds any time they take the field.
The New York Yankees baseball betting lineup rivals Philadelphia’s as the most productive around, however, and their pitching is also solid led by ace starter CC Sabathia and reliever Mariano Rivera. The Yankees also have a new baseball betting threat that they have lacked in prior post seasons as Alex Rodriguez is exercising his past playoff demons with a phenomenal performance so far this autumn.
A-Rod has a .438 batting average so far in 2009 baseball betting action with 10 runs scored, 12 runs batted in and 5 home runs. Most importantly, Rodriguez has gotten key clutch hits that have been the baseball betting difference for the Yankees and their backers this year.
“I couldn’t be more excited,” said Rodriguez. “Ever since I was five years old, it was a dream when I was a child…You have 24 great teammates. I couldn’t be happier.”
“We know what we are capable of,” said Howard. “It’s just a matter of us going out and doing it. There was that little underlying expectation that we had for ourselves that, hey, we know we can get back there and win it again.”
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.
