MLB betting favors the New York Yankees on Friday as they begin a three-game series at Seattle against the Mariners.
This is the first of a six-game bet on MLB road trip for New York.
MLB betting has the Yankees going with A.J. Burnett on Friday while Seattle counters with Doug Fister. Burnett is 11-9 on the season with a 4.33 ERA as MLB betting stats indicate while Fister is 2-2 with a 3.53 ERA.
The Yankees are almost always overvalued with Burnett on the mound in MLB betting. He has a big reputation but rarely pitches up to it. He has lost five of his last six MLB betting decisions including to Baltimore last time out. He was 1-5 with a 6.14 ERA in August. MLB betting indicates that Burnett has not faced the Mariners since 2007.
Fister was shelled for 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings last time out against Texas as bet on MLB stats show. It was his first bad outing since going into the starting rotation last month. He has already beaten the Yankees once in his career, allowing eight hits and three runs in seven innings.
There is not much argument in MLB betting that the Yankees are the best team in the league. They have the #1 offense in the league as MLB betting stats indicate. They are also a solid team on the road which makes them a decent bet at times at the sportsbook. Burnett is always an iffy proposition though so caution might be advised in this bet on MLB matchup.
Seattle hung around in the Wild Card race for a while but they simply can’t score enough runs to win on a regular basis in MLB betting. Seattle’s pitching is solid but when you average less than 4 runs per game you are going to struggle. The Mariners have also slipped somewhat in pitching MLB betting stats as they have fallen out of the Top 5.
Seattle has been good at home this season which makes them an interesting MLB betting selection in this game. The Yankees and Mariners have split their last 10 bet on MLB matchups at Seattle but New York did win three of four there last month.
