Many more times than not I am an underdog player with baseball as I love getting that take back and subsequent value with a team that has a great chance to win yet is a nice priced dog. There certainly are though times when the favorite seems to be laying less than they should be and that is the case here from Yankee Stadium.
I have said for a while that the prices on the diamond have been plummeting over the past five to 10 years and I see this game as a prime example. To be able to lay south of about 150 with Yankees in the Bronx and a stud ace in CC Sabathia on the hill would never have been the case just a few short years ago. I have all of the respect in the world for Justin Verlander as the guy has lights out stuff at times but it's still on the road against one of the best teams in the game in the Yankees. Plus Verlander is no Sabathia.
Arod, Tex, Swisher, Jeter, Cano and the Bombers may be getting a little older but they are still much deeper and more potent than the sketchy Tigers, whether Miggy is sober or not. Jim Leyland's team is truly very average when all is said and done and away from Comerica and up against the big bad Yankees makes me more than fine with fading the boys from Motown and backing the superior Yankees.
Top expert pick on today's card: New York Yankees
For more information: Yup, another phenomenal 2-0 sweep on Wednesday including my highest rated 500,000* cashing in beyond easy fashion on Oregon and a 300,000* outright on Santa Clara as the 9 ½ point pup. I have literally won money 19 of the last 25 days and profited 5.7 million* in that span. I am in a zone that few people have ever been in and in no way, shape or form is anything going to change today or in the near future.
Three plays for Thursday including yet another big-time 400,000* winner in the NIT finals between Wichita State and Alabama. Bonus 300,000* in the Association involving the Mavericks and Lakers and another 300,000* baseball seasonal play on a team's over/under that I love, love, love! The run has been insane, the year has been phenomenal and I am going to once again prove how I am the greatest handicapper alive today! Click now to purchase
