Baseball gambling handicappers saw the Phillies take game 1 with the baseball gambling odds on Wednesday with a 6-1 win to take a 1-0 series lead at Yankee Stadium. Chase Utley was the baseball gambling hero for Philadelphia is he cranked 2 home runs while Cliff Lee pitched a complete game allowing just 6 hits and 1 earned runs while striking out 10 for a phenomenal performance with the baseball gambling odds.
What made Philadelphia’s baseball gambling win so important was that it was against New York’s ace with the baseball gambling odds, CC Sabathia, the 22 game winner. The fact that Philadelphia got a baseball gambling win over Sabathia at Yankee Stadium only made it sweeter and more valuable as they now have home field advantage in the best of seven series.
In the first few innings Lee knew it was going to be an outstanding baseball gambling evening. “I don’t know if there was a point where I was like, ‘Wow, this is it, I’ve got them,’” said Lee. “With a lineup like that, I don’t think I ever really had that feeling. But I knew in the first three or four innings that it was going to be a good day.”
Philadelphia is the defending World Series champions and has the confidence of a team with such status. “It’s the World Series,” said Phillie star Ryan Howard. “I can’t speak for the Yankees, but we’re very comfortable knowing what’s at stake.”
The probable starters for Thursday’s baseball gambling matchup are right hander Pedro Martinez for Philadelphia and right hander AJ Burnett of the Yankees. Martinez had a baseball gambling record this year of 5-1 with a 3.14 earned run average. He has not allowed an earned run in 7 post season innings this year.
Burnett had a baseball gambling record of 13-9 with a 4.07 earned run average. In baseball gambling post season action this year he has no decisions and a rather high 4.42 earned run average. This baseball gambling series will switch to Philadelphia over the weekend after tonight’s game.
