2009 World Series Betting

World Series: Phillies vs. Yankees

– 162-game regular season. Check.
– American and National League divisional series. Check.
– AL and NL championship series. Check.

When the New York Yankees defeated the L.A. Angels 5-2 in Game 6 of the ALCS on Sunday night, they not only won the AL Pennant and booked a date with the Philadelphia Phillies in the Fall Classic; they ensured that two of pro sports’ most obnoxious fans would see their teams vying for the World Series. Just kidding Yankee and Philly supporters…sort of.


World Series Odds:

Online sportsbooks have set the series prices and no big surprise here: the Yankees are reasonably steep favorites. New York is at -190 while the Phillies, vying for back-to-back titles, are +165.

By virtue of the AL’s 4-3 victory in the 2009 MLB All-Star game, the Yankees will have homefield to start off the Fall Classic, which begins on Wednesday. In the opener, the Yankees are a -165 favorite while Philadelphia is a +150 ‘dog with the Over/Under set at 8.

In the last 10 meetings overall between the Yankees and the Phillies, they have posted a mark of 2 Overs and 8 Unders.

In the Bronx Bombers’ last 10 home games overall, they are 9-1 straight up and have gone “Under” the posted total 9 times, including seven in a row, and Pushed once. “Over” bettors might want to proceed with a bit of caution.

In fact, in the Yankees’ last 20 home games they have a very impressive SU record of 16-4.

However, the Phillies have trended to higher scoring games when they head out on the road. In their last nine starts away from home, they have recorded 8 Overs and only 1 Under.

Game 1 Starters:

After being named ALCS MVP, CC Sabathia won’t have much time to celebrate as he will get the Game 1 start on Wednesday.

Left-hander Sabathia has been money in his last nine home games as the Yankees are 9-0 SU, with a huge “Under” trend (1 Over and 8 Unders).

CC (along with teammate Alex Rodriguez) is the odds-on to take the World Series MVP award at +500.

Cliff Lee, also a lefty, will start for Philadelphia and in Lee’s last 10 games, he has been almost as good as his Pinstripe counterpart, as the Phillies are 8-2 SU during that period.

Lee is listed at +1000 to take this year’s World Series MVP.

Neither team has struggled facing southpaws. In New York’s last 20 games against left-handed pitchers, they have gone 16-4 SU and the Phillies have also fared well against LHPs going 15-5 SU in their last 20 against southpaws.

Can the Phillies stop the Yankee machine? It’s a tough task. Early betting action has the sports betting community saying “No”, as the volume coming in on the series option has been steadily leaning to the Yanks. SPORTSBETTING.com is reporting 70% New York action.

It should be a great World Series. Good luck.
