MLB odds on Friday should be interesting as the Florida Marlins host the New York Yankees.
It is the first of a three-game series between the two teams and the MLB betting odds on this matchup are close. Here is a look at the Yankees and Marlins MLB betting odds matchup for Friday.
MLB odds scheduling information tells us that the Yankees are beginning a 9-game road trip on Friday while the Marlins are beginning a six-game homestand. The Yankees and Marlins don’t play that often since they are in opposing leagues but they did meet in the regular season in 2006 and the Yankees won two of three in New York versus the MLB odds at the online sportsbook. The last time they played in Florida was in the 2003 World Series when the Marlins defeated the Yankees in MLB odds.
The Marlins have not played that well at home this season which is somewhat of a surprise since the Marlins have a decent pitching staff and a lineup that can score runs. The Marlins have a lot of young talent but it is inconsistent and that is a problem for gamblers wagering on MLB betting odds. Their offense ranks right in the middle of the league in terms of runs scored as MLB odds stats show while their pitching is below average. Florida has great young pitchers though, led by Josh Johnson. One MLB betting odds trend of note on Florida has them going over the total at home. Almost 60% of the time, the Marlins have been going over the MLB odds number at home.
The Yankees have been decent on the road this season which makes them playable in terms of MLB odds at the online sportsbook. Since the Yankees are so popular with the online betting public, they are laying money most of the time versus the MLB odds but the price is lower on the road. The Yankees have been excellent offensively, especially since Alex Rodriguez returned and MLB odds numbers have them at the top of the league. The pitching for New York has been weak though and that is a concern for online betting gamblers who take the Yankees versus the MLB odds.
