There is an understanding in the Bronx this sports betting year that if the New York Yankees are going to have any shot at clinching an American League East title, they will have to be nearly flawless in the second half to keep pace with the rival Boston Red Sox. A split in a four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays wasn’t the way that the Yankees wanted to open up after the midway mark, and it won’t get any easier this week as they stay on the road but head south for a four-game set against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

New York will open the series with AJ Burnett on the mound for his second straight start against the Rays. In his last appearance, Burnett went 5.2 innings allowing three earned runs while striking out nine in a 5-4 win in which he scored the no decision. Tampa Bay will counter with 23-year old rookie Alex Cobb, who has looked very promising with a 2-0 record and 3.41 ERA through his first five starts. Cobb has allowed just four earned runs through his past three appearances, and the Rays will need his best in the second half to avoid fading too far out of the AL Wild Card picture. Still, he will be in tough against a talented Yankees’ order that could overwhelm him with its depth.

While Jeremy Hellickson usually isn’t the favorite in any starting matchup, that may very well be the case against Bartolo Colon and New York on Tuesday. Colon is coming off his worst start of the season in which he gave up eight runs in just 0.2 innings of work against the Blue Jays, and the Rays will try to get to him early on.

Despite going to the 2011 All Star game the numbers of David Price haven’t been that incredible in 2011, including a couple of starts against the Yankees in which he allowed a combined nine earned runs in 10 innings of work. Price will need to be better to help out a Tampa Bay lineup that will look to take advantage of the edge in pitching for a second straight day as they go up against Freddy Garcia, who also struggled mightily against the Blue Jays in his first MLB betting start back from the Midsummer Classic.

For as strong as James Shields has looked at times this season, nothing can match what CC Sabathia has done over the past month-and-a-half as the Yankees’ ace has registered seven straight wins while allowing just two earned runs combined in his last five appearances. New York cannot afford to lose a series against a non-playoff team, and Sabathia will make sure that they settle for their second straight sports betting bonus split.
