The Yankees got off to a sluggish start to the MLB betting exhibition season with just 2 wins in their first 7 games as they tried to work different combinations both in the batting lineup and on the pitcher’s mound. On the positive Jorge Vazquez had a hot start to the exhibition season with a batting average of .583 along with 2 doubles, 2 home runs, and 5 runs batted in.
Alex Rodriguez showed up to camp ready to work as he was hitting .500 with 4 doubles and 1 run scored. Mark Teixeira was also ready for action as he was hitting .500 with 3 doubles, 1 triple, 2 runs batted in and 1 run scored. AJ Burnett was yet to allow an earned run and Bartolo Colon had a tidy 1.80 earned run average to start exhibition play.
CC Sabathia and Joba Chamberlain were lit up in their debuts on the mound which reminded handicappers of how pitching is the big concern for the Bronx Bombers heading into the 2011 season.
Pittsburgh is under first year manager Clint Hurdle and has responded with a good start to the MLB baseball betting exhibition season as they won 6 of their first 10 games. Pedro Ciriaco and Andy Marte were off to great starts as they were both hitting .400 to start exhibition play.
Each had 2 doubles to begin the year. Pedro Alvarez was hitting .294 with 3 doubles and 4 runs batted in.
Sports-Gambling opened with the Yankees as a +600 choice to win the World Series while the Pirates had MLB odds of +10000 to rank as one of the biggest long shots on the board to win the 2011 Fall Classic.
