Game 1 World Series Gambling Odds / Preview

Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Yankees 7:55 ET

On Wednesday night, the entire baseball betting world will be tuned to Fox for coverage of the 2009 World Series. The Philadelphia Phillies (100-71, +$908) will invade Yankee Stadium looking to steal Game 1 of the Fall Classic from the New York Yankees (110-61, +$1,677).

This is familiar territory for the Phillies, who entered last season’s World Series as decided underdogs against the Tampa Bay Rays. They took Game 1 of that series en route to their first championship since 1980. Manager Charlie Manuel will hope to repeat that script yet again starting with the first game of the Fall Classic tonight.


Bookmaker.com customers will be able to dig into all of the great MLB gambling action until the first pitch is thrown just before 8:00 ET.

After three successful starts in the playoffs, LHP Cliff Lee will get the ball for Game 1 of the World Series. Lee has looked like anything but a guy throwing in his first ever postseason this year. He has pitched three incredible games, allowing just two earned runs over 24.1 innings of work. His most recent start against the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLCS was arguably his most important outing as a Philly. Lee tossed eight shutout innings in a game the champs absolutely had to have to give them the momentum to sweep all three home games to close out the NL West champions.

So far, the Phillies have gotten everything out of Lee that they could’ve hoped for when they traded for him, as they are 11-4 in his 15 starts including the playoffs. The southpaw hasn’t had the greatest career against the Yankees though, as he has a 5.02 ERA and a 4-4 record in nine starts against the Yanks. Lee only allowed four earned runs in two starts against the Bronx Bombers this year, though.

After having Game 6 postponed by a day, New York skipper Joe Girardi had a critical decision to make. He could’ve elected to throw his horse, LHP CC Sabathia, on what would’ve been regular rest, but instead, he kept his rotation in order and threw LHP Andy Pettitte. Pettitte got the job done and finished off the Halos, setting up Sabathia to throw Games 1, 4, and 7 if necessary against the Phils in the World Series.

Much like Lee, Sabathia has pretty much been unhittable in these playoffs. He has only allowed three earned runs in 22.2 innings, while striking out 20 men against just three walks; opposing hitters are only batting .200 against Sabathia. There isn’t much history between the lefty and the defending champs, as Sabathia is only 1-1 with a 4.35 ERA in 20.2 innings pitched against the Phils in his career.
