MLB betting on Wednesday favors the New York Yankees as they host the Texas Rangers in a game set to be televised on ESPN 2.
Those that bet on MLB action will probably be looking to the Yankees even though the Rangers have held their own at Yankee Stadium recently.
MLB betting tells us this is the second game of a three-game series between the two teams. Before this MLB betting series began, the Yankees had won 13 of the last 20 against Texas but they were only 5-5 in the last 10 at home against the Rangers. The Yankees won two of three between the two teams in MLB betting back in June when they played at Yankee Stadium.
It is an MLB betting battle of lefthanders on Wednesday as Derek Holland faces Andy Pettitte. Holland is 7-7 on the season with a 4.72 ERA. Pettitte is 10-6 with a 4.25 ERA as bet on MLB numbers show.
Holland has pitched well of late for the Rangers. He allowed just one run in 5 1/3 innings against the Twins in his last start. He is 4-2 with a 2.95 ERA over his past seven starts as MLB betting statistics indicate. He has not pitched well in his career against the Yankees. He is 0-1 with a 9.95 ERA in 6 1/3 innings as sports betting stats indicate.
Pettitte got the MLB betting win against the Red Sox last time out but gave up five earned runs. Pettitte has won 10 or more games in 14 of his 15 seasons as MLB betting tells us.
Games between the two slugging teams actually have a chance to go under the MLB betting total. The under in MLB betting is 5-4-1 in the last 10 at Yankee Stadium between the Yankees and Rangers.
The Rangers have moved into rare territory this season. They are now ranked in the Top 10 in both runs scored and fewest runs allowed as MLB betting stats tell us. That is a big reason why they are very much in the Wild Card race in the American League.
The Yankees have been right near the top of the league in runs scored but they still rank in the middle in runs allowed as online sports betting stats show.
