UNDER on Tap at Fenway Park on Friday?

The OVER has paid out for totals bettors just twice in Justin Masterson's nine career starts against the New York Yankees as his Boston Red Sox open up a series against their division rival in marquee MLB odds action on Friday night.

Masterson is 2-0 on the season but has a 5.16 ERA, taking a no-decision against the Orioles last time out after allowing three runs on seven hits over seven innings of work. CC Sabathia will get the ball for the Yankees looking for his first win of the season on Friday - he's 0-0 with a 5.96 ERA.

Kentucky Derby: Carpe Diem Betting Odds

Despite failing to land a favorable post position on Wednesday, Carpe Diem remains one of the top horses worth betting for the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs behind only Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert’s two favorites, American Pharoah and Dortmund.

That is because Carpe Diem has a quality trainer of his own in Todd Pletcher, who won the Derby in 2010 with Super Saver and has seen his latest three-year-old win the Blue Grass and Tampa Bay Derby in his last two starts.


Kentucky Derby: Frosted Betting Odds

It might not be the best post position for Saturday’s Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, but Frosted need not look further than Orb in 2013 to find another horse that won the race from near his assigned gate.

And the jockey that rode Orb to that victory, Joel Rosario, will be atop Frosted as well in hopes of repeating the success he enjoyed just two years ago at the Kentucky Derby.


Kentucky Derby: Firing Line Betting Odds

Firing Line has the best chance to win the 2015 Kentucky Derby out of the entire 20-horse field based on Wednesday’s post position draw. And at his current odds bettors may get a bargain if he becomes the 10th horse ever to win the Kentucky Derby out of the No. 10 position.

Giacomo was the last horse to win the Kentucky Derby out of that spot a decade ago, and eight others have done the same from that Kentucky Derby post position since 1930.


Kentucky Derby: Mubtaahij Betting Odds

While he may not be one of the most well-known horses in the Kentucky Derby field, Mubtaahij is a bit of a wild card for the first race of the Triple Crown at Churchill Downs on Saturday. The Irish-bred three-year-old bay colt earned an impressive eight-length win in the $2 million UAE Derby in Dubai on March 28, serving notice that he will be one to watch in Louisville.


Kentucky Derby: Materiality Betting Odds

Much like another Todd Pletcher-trained horse – Carpe Diem – Materiality will not be starting the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on Saturday from the most favorable post position.

Carpe Diem will be in the No. 3 position for the race while Materiality is set to begin right next to him at No. 4. The good news is that Super Saver won the Kentucky Derby from that spot back in 2010, as have four others in the history of the first Triple Crown race.


Bulls Try to End SU, ATS Skid vs Bucks
