Yankees vs. Athletics Betting Pick / Preview (Apr. 21)

Wednesday Night Baseball Pick: New York Yankees vs Oakland Athletics

Teams have begun the 2010 Major League Baseball season. It’s time to NOW bring your best baseball betting hat to the table for gambling on baseball in the 2010 season. Cappers Picks all season long provides MLB baseball gambling predictions, so check back often.

The Cubbies have stumbled badly in the crowded National League Central early on, looking washed up, but Carlos Silva has been a rare bright spot so far. He’s allowed just one earned run in 13 innings, walking no batters.

Starting Pitchers

Phil Hughes (1-0, 3.60) vs Ben Sheets (1-0, 2.65)

Is it just me or are the Bronx Bombers somehow “quietly” off to a 10-3 start? Maybe everyone just expects that type of production early on. They’ll send Phil Hughes to the hill tonight and hope to provide the youngster with the same type of run support he enjoyed his last time out.

Hughes walked five batters and allowed two runs over five innings but rode six runs from his teammates to victory.

Reclamation project Ben Sheets gets the nod for Oakland tonight.

His once-excellent control has eluded him so far this season but he hasn’t picked up a loss and has battled out of jams to post a 2.65 ERA.

Against the patient, powerful Yankees, however, Sheets can’t afford to miss his spots tonight. Erratic Gio Gonzalez learned that the hard way last night.

Sheets has only faced the Yankees once in his career, tossing seven scoreless innings, but that start isn’t relevant right now.

We have to treat this Sheets as a new pitcher given his uncharacteristic control problems.

I don’t think he’s ready to handle New York just yet.
