On line sports gambling odds makers have the New York Yankees posted as the overwhelming sports gambling favorite to repeat as World Series Champions. The Yankees finished the 2009 on line sports gambling season with a record of 103-59 and with a 4-2 World Series win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Yankees first sportsgambling season in the new Yankee Stadium was highly profitable as they were 57-24 as a host in their new digs.
New York returns with an even deeper lineup and pitching staff for the 2010 on line sports gambling season after finishing as the top rated run producing team in 2009 and with a pitching staff that ranked 11th best in the majors for earned run average.
CC Sabathia leads one of the best starting pitching rotations in all of on line sports gambling and proved to be well worth his monster contract last year in his first season wearing pinstripes. Sabathia went 19-8 with a 3.37 earned run average and was particularly strong during the stretch and championship drive.
Closer Mariano Rivera is the best in the game and has been like a machine since taking over that role full time in 1999. Rivera had 44 saves in 46 chances during the 2009 on line sports gambling season with an earned run average of 1.76.
He has 526 career saves in 570 opportunities and a career earned run average of 2.25. He has kept his earned run average under 2.00 in six out of the past seven on line sports gambling seasons.
The lineup is so loaded that it just doesn’t seem fair as Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano, Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, and Nick Swisher lead the scoring machine.
The only concern about the Yankees this year would be their likely status as regular overlays. Not only are they the best team in the game but they are also the most popular and respected and they have difficulty retaining board value.
They will win far more games than they lose but those losses will likely be very expensive and painful to gamblers unlucky enough to be on them for those rare occasions.
