Baseball playoffs betting fans saw the Yankees take game 1 for everyone that bet on baseball playoffs odds with them in a 7-2 win over the Twins.
Minnesota looked to be running on fumes for the opening game of this baseball playoffs betting series. The Twins jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the 3rd inning but appeared to have nothing left for that baseball playoffs betting opener as they were coming off an emotional 12-inning marathon win the previous day at home against the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central Division tie breaker.
Derek Jeter of the Yankees got off to a strong baseball playoffs betting start in game one as he went 2-2 with 2 walks and scored 3 runs while driving in 2 more. Jeter enters the baseball playoffs betting season as the “Pride of the Yankees” and a key element in their attack.
Those who bet on baseball playoffs action are fully aware of the poor baseball playoffs betting reputation of Alex Rodriguez but A-Rod also had a solid game as he went 2-4 with a run and 2 runs batted in. If Rodriguez can pull himself together the Bronx Bombers might be an unbeatable baseball playoffs betting commodity this year.
The scheduled probable starters for game 2 of this baseball playoffs betting series are right hander Nick Blackburn of the Twins and right hander AJ Burnett of the Yankees. Blackburn enters this baseball playoffs betting showdown with a record of 11-11 and a 4.07 earned run average. The Twins were 16-17 in his starts this year.
Burnett looks to be a solid pitcher to bet on baseball playoffs games with as he was 13-9 this season with a 4.04 earned run average. More important, however, is the fact that the Yankees went 21-12 in his starts this year. The Twins have been a poor baseball playoffs betting commodity over the years with just 5 payouts in their last 21 post season games.
This game is scheduled to start Friday at 6:07 PM eastern time and can be seen on TBS.
