Phillies manager Joe Girardi will experience a bittersweet Tuesday. On this occasion, Girardi will be going up against his previous team. New York Yankee fans will always appreciate Girardi’s consistent winning. And the World Series championship he led the Yankees too. However, New York’s consistent baseball betting playoff failures eventually cost Girardi his job. Aaron Boone has posted a pair of 100+ win seasons in Girardi’s place. Yet World Series glory has still been fleeting. Philadelphia was a highly touted flop last year. Girardi has been charged with getting the Phillies into the expanded 16-team playoffs.

New York Yankees at Philadelphia Phillies CashBet Odds Analysis
Of course, with Gerrit Cole starting for New York comes heavy sportsbook action. Cole was highly impressive in his winning Yankee debut. New York is already one of the most public teams on the board in any sport. Counter to that will be a good share of bargain hunters on the Phillies. Philadelphia is seen as a potential sleeper in this short 60-game schedule. With the expanded playoffs Girardi has a good shot at first-year success. Commencing with failure as a 2019 favorite are some bettors slow to forget. Bryce Harper’s arrival proved to cause an overlay of red ink.
New York Yankees Overview
At the onset of the Yankees 2020 season is massive betting on baseball expectations. New York is seen as the class of the American League. With sluggers, Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Gleyber Torres run production are a given. Of great concern is the status of dominant closer Aroldis Chapman. He has been on the 10-day disabled list due COVID-19.
Cole is far and away from New York’s top starter. Accordingly, he carries tremendous pressure carrying an otherwise inconsistent rotation. Starting pitching has been what has kept the Yankees out of the World Series. Cole signed the biggest contract in history for a pitcher to end that.
SP Gerrit Cole, 1 W, 0 L, 1.80 ERA, 5.0 IP, 1 H, 1 HR, 1 BB, 5 SO, .063 AVG, 0.50 WHIP, Closer Zack Britton (2019 stats) 3 W, 1 L, 1.91 ERA, 3 SV, 7 SVO, 61.1 IP, 38 H, 3 HR, 32 BB, 53 SO, .182 AVG, 1.14 WHIP, DH Giancarlo Stanton .667 AVG, .714 OBP, 1.833 SLG, 2.548 OPS, 2 R, 1 2B, 0 3B, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 0 SB
Philadelphia Phillies Overview
Fashion that the Phillies were prohibitive but failed 2019 MLB betting favorites. Bryce Harper’s huge contract caused insane betting patters. While Harper wasn’t bad, he was nowhere near capable of carrying a thin roster. With expectations lower for 2020 redemption is possible. Girardi’s steady demeanor will help.
SP Zach Eflin (2019 stats), 10 W, 13 L, 4.13 ERA, 163.1 IP, 172 H, 28 HR, 48 BB, 129 SO, .268 AVG, 1.35 WHIP, Closer Sean Doolittle (2019 stats) 6 W, 5 L, 4.05 ERA, 35 SV, 60.0 IP, 63 H, 11 HR, 15 BB, 66 SO, .206 AVG, 0.95 WHIP, 2B Asdrubal Cabrera, .600 AVG, .667 OBP, 1.400 SLG, 2.067 OPS, 2 R, 1 2B, 0 3B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 0 SB
