MLB Baseball Lines at Get That Bet – Can Yankees Floruish in Home Dog Role Against First-Place A’s?

MLB Baseball Betting Lines, Odds Predictions & News – New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays
The New York Yankees played in some hard luck on Tuesday, as they fell in extra innings to the Oakland Athletics, but at least the Bronx Bombers got some encouraging signs from one of the people they hope will supply some much-needed power as they tried to contend for a playoff spot. Mark Teixeira, the first baseman who had an operation on his wrist last season, and has been bothered by flareups of inflammation from time to time since he returned to the lineup, took a cortisone shot and hit a home run. Could it be just as easy as that?

Obviously MLB baseball bettors know otherwise, as the Yankees are dealing with a multitude of other problems this season, including attrition in their starting rotation. One result of that attrition is that they are going to have to use Vidal Nuno as their starting pitcher on Wednesday night as they try to even things up in this series. Game time is 7:10 PM ET at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees, at 29-28, are five games back of Toronto in the AL East and just a half-game behind Baltimore and Seattle in terms of thre second wild card spot. Meanwhile, the A’s have taken advantage of some sloppy play on the part of the Los Angeles Angels to open up a 5.5-game lead in the American League West.

In the MLB baseball lines posted on this contest by the folks over at Get That Bet, the Athletics are the favorites:

Oakland Athletics (Chavez – R) -150
New York Yankees (Nuno – L) +130

Under 9 Runs -115
Over 9 Runs -105

The Yankees are missing CC Sabathia, Michael Pineda and Ivan Nova from the starting rotation, so they can thank their lucky stars that they have gotten a great rookie performance out of Masahito Tanaka, who is scheduled to go tomorrow night. Nuno is something of a different story. When he made his first start he offered club management some optimism that he could at least fill in for one of the injured starters. But right now he has a 5.48 ERA and gave up three home runs to Minnesota in his last start. He is a southpaw, and Brandon Moss, who was one of the big clutch hitters for Oakland, is hitting .343 against left-handers. His home run busted open a tie in the tenth inning last night to give Oakland a win at the Stadium.

Get Thet Bet customers know that the Yankees are also missing Carlos Beltran, who is currently undergoing a minor league rehabilitation assignment. Even though they should have plenty of offense, they have scored just 10 runs in the last five games. Maybe Teixeira can get on a roll; even though he has missed 19 games, he leads the team with 27 RBIs. MLB baseball bettors are aware that this is not an easy assignment for the Yankee hitters on Wednesday night. Jesse Chavez, with a 2.78 ERA, has lost two starts in a row, but Oakland can usually count on five or six innings of solid work for him, as he has allowed more than three runs in a start only once.
