Betting the Yankees – How and Why
The New York Yankees are lighting it up and no matter how you slice it, they are a good bet. The
sportsbook don’t want you to bet them but they have to offer it or they wouldn’t be legit. Find a great
book that caters to baseball and baseball lines and jump in. The season has been a good one with a few
surprising plot twists such as the Atlanta Braves for the good and the LA Dodgers for the bad, however,
are the Dodgers a bad bet? Let’s tackle the Dodgers in a moment and focus on the Yankees.
What have the Yankees really done?
The Bombers are battling in the AL East to stave off the ever pesky, Boston Red Sox who also happen to
be having a fantastic start to this young season. This Yankees lineup is the new “Murderers Row”, this
lineup is “sick”, really, this group of guys could possibly be the best Yankees team to come along in a
very long time and for sure in the last 20 years.
Aaron Judge, speaking of “sick” this guy is a one man wrecking crew with huge numbers. Judge comes in
8 th in the AL with 12 homers, 5 th for RBI at 36, 4 th in runs 35, 2 nd in BB 37, 8 th SLG .565 and 6 th in OPS at
.981. He really is tearing it up and when the lineup features a player of this caliber, you can count on the
trickledown effect, and it has trickled down in a big way with a team batting average of .256, a
whopping 67 home runs, 245 RBI, 690 TB, and a .460 SLG. Phenomenal numbers are exactly what the
Yankees are pouring in night after night and they are proving to be a great bet.
Most of you reading this most likely have a fairly good handle on how you prefer to bet this grand game
but we would like to offer a refresher…
The Yankees are obviously a very good bet right now and it looks to last throughout the season. Every
bettor should wait at least a couple of weeks before finding a real betting routine. That two weeks is
long over and now you should have a handful of teams that you are either betting on or against or both.

In betting first thing is first, have a weekly budget and do not fudge! Stick to a budget and you won’t be
sorry. You should be following the first three starting pitchers on your “favorites” list. Stick with who’s
hot even when the juice is high priced. Remember, a win is a win and a loss is a loss. You would rather
pay some big juice and win, then take a plus number and lose.
Play first five innings and second halves. Find the best bullpens and ride the second halves, this is a sure
fire way to beat the high juice and an even more fun way to bet; it’s quicker.
Play round robins. This is a great betting option because it allows you to lose a game or two and still
bring in a little or at least get your money back. When teams are hot, they are a great bet, when teams
are terrible, it’s great to bet against them. The Royals will lose close to 100 games this year. You can bet
that laying the juice on their opponent will be a great bet nearly all-season long.
