Betting Major League Baseball ESPN Sunday Night Game

The Sunday night ESPN game is a good one this week for gamblers betting Major League Baseball as the Los Angeles Dodgers host the New York Yankees.

It is the finale of a three-game series between the two teams and it should be a good one in MLB props and futures as Andy Pettitte should be going for New York against the Dodgers Clayton Kershaw.

Betting Major League Baseball is always more popular when the game is on television so this game between the Yankees and Dodgers should get added attention.  It is the last game of a six-game road trip for New York and the last game of a brief three-game home stand for Los Angeles.

It should be a battle of left-handers on Sunday with Pettitte pitching for New York while Kershaw goes for Los Angeles.  Kershaw is 7-4 on the season with a 3.24 ERA.  He has been pretty solid all season for Los Angeles and a pitcher to follow when betting Major League Baseball. In his last start he was rolling along until the sixth inning when he got into trouble and gave up a three-run home run to the Angels Bobby Abreu.  Kershaw had won six of his previous decisions before that loss.

You have to go all the way back to 2004 for the last time the Dodgers and Yankees met before this series began.  They played in Los Angeles and the Dodgers took two of three for those betting Major League Baseball.

The Yankees have been better at home than on the road as have the Dodgers so Los Angeles may be the way to go in this betting Major League Baseball matchup. It is always tough to go against Andy Pettitte though since he usually gives New York a chance to win when he is on the mound.  Kershaw will have to slow down a New York lineup that is second in the league in runs scored.

The Dodgers are hanging around in the National League West race even though they haven’t gotten great hitting or pitching this season. Los Angeles is just average in runs per game and in ERA.  Earlier in the season they were really hitting the ball but now they are struggling.  The pitching for the Dodgers is inconsistent so it is tough to take them on a regular basis when betting Major League Baseball.
