Sportsbook.com Series Price: New York Yankees -180, Texas Rangers +160
The Rangers make their Championship Series debut Friday when they host the Yankees in Game 1. The game features a pair of left-handed starters in CC Sabathia (21-7, 3.18 ERA) and C.J. Wilson (15-8, 3.35 ERA). Both southpaws are coming off ALDS wins with Sabathia working around some trouble in a 6-4 Yankees win while Wilson was lights out, limiting the Rays to just two hits over 6.1 shutout innings. Sportsbook.com currently has New York as -145 favorites over Texas (+135) for Friday night’s game.
After much debate, the Yankees have decided to go with Phil Hughes (18-8, 4.19 ERA) in Game 2 and Andy Pettitte (11-3, 3.28 ERA) in Game 3. The much maligned A.J. Burnett (10-15, 5.26 ERA) is set for Game 4.
Texas will send Colby Lewis to the mound in Game 2 (12-13, 3.72 ERA) and go with Cliff Lee (12-9, 3.18 ERA) in Game 3. Tommy Hunter (13-4, 3.73 ERA) gets the nod in Game 4.
The Yankees and Rangers split their eight-game series this year, with Texas going 4-1 at home and the Yanks grabbing a three-game sweep in the Bronx April16-18.
Sabathia and Hughes have had tremendous success against this Texas lineup. Some significant numbers against Sabathia include Bengie Molina’s lifetime 1-for-19, Vladimir Guerrero’s 3-for-19 and Josh Hamilton’s 1-for-10. The 13 Rangers who have faced Sabathia are a combined 30-for-160 (.188 BA). Things are even worse for Texas against Phil Hughes. The Rangers are a paltry 3-for-38 against Hughes, with Michael Young and Jeff Francouer posting 0-for-7 marks against the right-hander. A.J. Burnett has held the Rangers to a .208 average while Texas hits Andy Pettitte at a .310 clip.
Nick Swisher and Derek Jeter have solid numbers against Texas’ projected starters, with Swisher going 6-for-20 against Wilson and 8-for-25 against Lee. Jeter enters the series 5-for-14 and 15-for-36 respectively. The opposite can be said for Alex Rodriguez who is just 1-for-13 against Wilson and a mediocre 6-for-22 (.273 BA) against Lee. Jeter is also the only Yankee to record a hit off Colby Lewis. Jeter is 3-for-5 with two HR lifetime while the other Yankees who have faced Lewis (Berkman, Posada, Teixeira) are 0-for-15

MLB: Time for MLB Trendy Talk 2010-05-25
Baseball, like any sport is often decided by how teams matchup. Often, little secrets emerge when two teams face off and they can be frequently found in baseball trends. Those participating in sports betting can grab an edge they might otherwise not have with a couple of key points about any given contest on a typical slate of 15 games. Take the time to peruse baseball’s top trends for tonight below, then head over to the LIVE ODDS page on Sportsbook.com for the latest game prices.
In the National League the Cincinnati Reds host Pittsburgh being tied with the St. Louis atop the Central Division. The Reds are a -170 money line favorite at Sportsbook.com and have feasted on rotten teams. Cincy is 12-2 playing against a bad club with 38-46 win percentage and is 11-2 if a NL team has an on-base percentage .315 or worse this season.
Philadelphia visits the New York Mets and is 10-2 on the road after seven or more consecutive home games the last three seasons. Tonight, the Phillies starter is Jamie Moyer and he and the Phils are 14-3 in road encounters against division opponents since 2008.
Atlanta heads to south Florida with the total at nine. This might be setting up as Under play since the Braves are 14-3 UNDER in road games when playing with a day off over the last three years and Florida starter Anibal Sanchez is 11-1 UNDER when the ML is +125 to -125.
The Houston at Milwaukee matchup is like picking your own poison. The Brewers are 4-14 at Miller Park and 2-7 as a home favorite of -110 or higher this season. The Astros on the other hand are 15-29 and 7-21 coming of a loss. Houston will start Felipe Paulino, who is 0-6 this year, and he and the ‘Stros are 2-15 as an underdog of +100 or higher over the last two seasons.
Over in the American League, two scuffling Central Division partners do battle in Cleveland. The Chicago White Sox are underachieving 19-25 and cannot formulate any momentum with 4-14 record after a win in 2010. The Indians have hitting and pitching woes are 4-17 after scoring four runs or less in five straight games since 2008. The Pale Hose are -132 ML favorites because of starter Jake Peavy.
Oakland has won three in a row and five of seven to climb back over .500 at 23-22 and has owned Baltimore with 13-2 mark. The A’s are -111 ML road faves behind Dallas “Mr. Perfect” Braden; however an inkling of doubt arises. The Athletics are feeble 0-13 in road games vs. an AL starting pitcher whose WHIP is 1.100 or better.
Minnesota, like a lot of AL clubs, has problems with the New York Yankees. The Twins are 5-18 vs. New York and 4-7 at home the last couple of years. The simplest explanation is the 16-32 record vs. an AL team with an on-base percentage of .345 or better. Minnesota will try to change their luck in new Target Field against the Bronx Bombers, but are 12-30 versus AL squads scoring 5.2 or more runs a game.
The Toronto Blue Jays continue to mash, leading baseball with 76 dingers and are 12-4 in road encounters when playing against a team with a losing record after last night’s impressive 6-0 white-washing of the L.A. Angels. The Halos are presently listed as a Pick with a great deal of line movement. This evening they give the ball to Ervin Santana who is 22-8 throwing at the Big A vs. teams outscoring opponents by 0.5 or more runs game. (Team's Record)
MLB: Final MLB Weekend Betting Trends 10/2-10/42009-10-02
The Major League Baseball season is down to its final weekend, and just one order of business remains to be settled before the postseason begins on Tuesday. With Colorado becoming the most recent team to clinch a playoff berth yesterday, only the A.L. Central representative has left to be decided. Detroit goes into the weekend with a two-game lead on Minnesota, with the clubs having just split four games this week in Motown. Read on as we go through the upcoming weekend series for each team and assess their chances at extending their season. Plus, we’ll cover the other intriguing action and release the top StatFox betting trends for you to utilize in your weekend wagering.
On paper, it would seem that the Twins have the better matchup this weekend, hosting Kansas City for three games. The Royals started making vacation plans for October a long time ago, and are 29-games below .500 for the season. They are also just 2-6 in their last eight games. The Twins are only in a position to stay alive for a postseason berth because of their success against division opponents, as they are 42-27 for +11.0 units in 2009 vs. A.L. Central foes. Included in that is a 9-6 mark against Kansas City. However, the Royals own a 4-2 series edge in the games at the Metrodome this year and pose a threat to the Twins playoff hopes if for no other reason than that ace Zack Greinke is scheduled to pitch on Saturday.
The Tigers aren’t exactly seizing control of the division and come into their weekend set against Chicago with a 3-4 mark in their L7 games. Detroit has been hitting well in that span at .279, but leaving a ton of runners on base, 8.3 per game. The White Sox hope to finish their season strong and continue where they left off a week ago at home versus Detroit, when they took two of three. They’ve been winning with pitching, as five of their last six opponents have been held t seven hits or less. Still, they are just 34-44 on the road in ’09, while Detroit boasts an impressive 50-28 mark at Comerica Park.
With a magic number of 2 for clinching the title, the Tigers can take care of business as early as Friday night or win out themselves by taking two of three from Chicago.
In the National League, the games may not mean a whole lot as far as who is getting into the postseason, but there is still an order of finish to be determined. The Dodgers, Cardinals, and Phillies are all within two games of one another as division winners. The best record of course, gets the top seed, however, Los Angeles cannot host Colorado in the divisional playoff round, so that matchup will fall to either Philadelphia or St. Louis. Currently, it would be the Phillies, as they are a game up on manager Tony Larussa’s club. Philly hosts Florida this weekend, while the Cardinals wrap up the regular season at home against Milwaukee. The Dodgers meanwhile, will still try to wrap up home field advantage for the N.L. playoffs by taking care of business vs. Colorado.
Now, here’s a look at those top betting trends for the final weekend of the season. Good luck.
