Bet on MLB – Yankees at Blue Jays

May 30, 2011 MLB Baseball

The Yankees are 9-5 and have won four of their last five in MLB betting.

The New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays begin a quick two-game series on Tuesday and you can bet on MLB on this series at Sbg global.  The Blue Jays come into the game at 7-9 overall having lost three in a row. 

Burnett Looking to Go 4-0
Raise your hand if you thought that A.J. Burnett would be 3-0 this season?  There probably was not one hand that went up.  Burnett was expected to be the weak link of the Yankees rotation but so far this season he has kept New York in games and given them a chance to win.  He is not pitching great but with New York’s offense he doesn’t have to be great. He just has to be serviceable and so far he has been.  In his three starts this season he is 3-0 with a 4.67 ERA.  He has had his troubles against the Blue Jays in his career with a 2-4 record and a 5.84 ERA so that is something to remember as you bet on MLB.

Toronto Starting Pitcher – Kyle Drabek
The Blue Jays have a future star on their hands in Kyle Drabek.  Yes, the Phillies got Roy Halladay but they had to give up a lot to get him and one of those players was Kyle Drabek.  So far this season Drabek has been very good with a record of 1-0 with an ERA of 1.93.  He has walked 11 batters but so far the walks have not hurt him. They might if the walks too many against the Yankees.  Drabek is 0-1 in his career with a 4.50 ERA against the Yankees.
