Another year, another season of high payrolls and high expectations for the damn Yankees. The Yankees will once again threaten to win a ton of regular season games, and make the playoffs. As much as you hate to admit it, you know it’s true. They will likely be right there in the playoff hunt again with the Blue Jays and the Red Sox, although most experts feel a lack of depth in their pitching rotation will keep them from overtaking the other two. Still the Yankees win, despite us all. They seem to feed on our hate, year after year.

New York Yankees Betting
People just love cheering against pinstripes, when it comes to New York Yankees Betting. When betting on baseball. But always remember that the first place team in a division isn’t actually much better than the last place team, most years. So, if a division leading team is playing a 3 game series with the last place team, it’s very likely the cellar-dweller will win at least 1 of those games. So place your bets with that in mind. Always take a good long look at the pitching matchup, the injuries, and trends.
As for the Yanks lineup, it’s good, but not spectacular. Last year they saw good production from a lineup that was supposed to be washed up and finished, or so we hoped. But, the Yankees’ A-Rod refuses to age and still did a lot of damage. Elsewhere, they saw the reemergence of Mark Teixeira and good years at the plate from vets Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann. You can also add young second-baseman Starlin Castro into the mix as a major threat every night.
As for pitching, they have struggled with injuries and building any sort of consistency in recent years. Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller, and Dellin Betances are all the best strikeout artists in baseball and need to be feared. You basically need to build a lead in the early innings of the game, because after the 6th you’re going to have to work incredibly hard to make a dent in this bullpen. Teams will have to attack a shaky starting core if they’re going to beat the Yankees, so place your bets with pitching in mind at all times.
