MLB betting will have the New York Yankees favored on Thursday as they play at Seattle.
The Yankees are expected to send CC Sabathia on Thursday and that means they will be a popular choice for gamblers who bet on MLB action.
MLB betting has seen the home team dominate this series. The Mariners have won 7 of the last 10 at home against New York. It might be difficult to repeat that success considering New York is simply the superior team this season. The Yankees are beginning a 10-game road trip so they should be interesting to watch in MLB betting the next couple of weeks.
Sabathia is expected to get the MLB betting start on Thursday. He is 12-7 on the season with a 3.76 ERA. He is coming off one of his best efforts of the season as he gave up just two hits in 7 2/3 innings against Boston. In the last four years he is 17-2 in the month of August as MLB betting stats indicate.
Ian Snell gets his second start with the Mariners. His first one did not go well as he went only 1 1/3 innings against Tampa Bay as bet on MLB stats show. His big issue is control as he walked six against Tampa last time out as MLB betting indicates. This will be Snell’s first career start against New York.
The MLB betting total at the sports book has seen 7 of the last 10 between the two teams go under the total at Seattle. If Snell has some control then that could happen again since Sabathia is likely to shut down Seattle. Two of the three games last season at Seattle between the two teams went under the MLB betting total at the sportsbook.
The Yankees have been just over .500 on the road this season as bet on MLB numbers indicate, which is good enough to get the job done considering they have been great at home. New York has been 2nd in the league in runs scored as MLB betting stats indicate. The Mariners have been solid at home this season but in recent weeks those MLB betting numbers have slipped. The big problem for Seattle is that they just don’t have much offense. Ichiro gets his slap hits and Russell Branyan hits home runs but there isn’t much else even though Jose Lopez is having a nice year.
