MLB baseball wagering fans believe that the Red Sox rather than the New York Yankees are the team to beat for the American League MLB online betting pennant race.
The Boston Red Sox will host the New York Yankees on Monday night with a starting time of 7 PM ET and a telecast on ESPN2. Sports Gambling will have side and total odds on this exhibition game between hated American League East Division rivals so be sure and open your account for side and total action today.
The Yankees opened the spring training exhibition season with just 6 wins with the MLB odds in their first 15 games. New York is working a lot of un tested players into the lineup and on the hill. Jorge Vazquez has been the star for the Bronx Bombers early on as he was hitting .480 with 3 doubles, 3 home runs, and 8 runs batted in.
Eric Chavez was also making an impression as he was hitting .409 while Curtis Granderson was hitting .348 with 2 triples, 3 home runs and 7 runs batted in. Manny Banuelos and Freddy Garcia each threw 5 shutout innings to begin exhibition action and Banuelos had 8 strikeouts. The big question for the Yankees is if they can find starting pitching help come Opening Day.
Boston was 11-7 with the baseball lines to begin the exhibition season. Jacoby Ellsbury had the hot bat early on with an average of .440 with 3 doubles, 1 home run, and 4 runs batted in. Clay Buchholz was in fabulous form as he threw 9 shutout innings with 6 strikeouts. Rich Hill tossed 5 shutout innings and Bobby Jenks allowed no runs in 4 innings of work.
The Yankees opened at Sports-Gambling as a +550 selection to win the World Series, +300 to win the American League, +170 to win the American League East, and with an over under win total of 91.5.
Boston opened with +300 to win the World Series, +200 to win the American League, -155 to win the American League East, and with a MLB baseball wagering over under win total of 95.5.
