MLB betting on Monday includes an ESPN televised contest in New York as the Yankees host the Tampa Bay Rays.
It is the finale of a four-game series between the two teams. Gamblers who bet on MLB action will see that the Yankees are solid favorites in this matchup.
MLB betting odds at the online sportsbook favor the Yankees but the situation may not. New York is playing the final game of their home stand and they are in a look-ahead situation as they begin a three-game series in Boston tomorrow night. The good news for New York is that they have Andy Pettitte on the mound. He is 5-2 on the season with a 4.33 ERA as MLB betting stats show. He is also much better at home than on the road which should give the Yankees the edge in MLB betting. Pettitte has two no-decisions so far this season against the Rays. He has allowed eight runs in 13 1/3 innings against them as MLB betting statistics tell us.
MLB betting information shows that Jeff Niemann gets the start for Tampa Bay. He is 5-4 with a 3.77 ERA this season. Sportsbook gamblers that bet on MLB action may remember that Niemann is coming off a near perfect game in his last outing against the Royals. He pitched a complete game two-hit shutout against the Royals. He struck out a career high nine batters in that game and he has allowed only two runs over his last three starts as MLB betting statistics tell us.
Before this four-game series began the Yankees had won six of the last ten home games against the Rays as MLB betting statistics show. The under had been the way to go in terms of the MLB betting total at the online sportsbook. Before this series, 7 of the last 10 games between the two teams had gone under the MLB betting total. When it comes to making a bet on MLB totals with the Yankees you really have to throw out all previous MLB betting numbers since the new Yankee Stadium has become a launching pad. Historic trends simply don’t mean anything with New York home games with the new stadium.
