MLB Playoff Betting Odds

Sportsbooks can't quite give up on the Yankees and bettors keep backing them, even on the road facing elimination in Game 6.

The ALCS betting lines for Game 6 of the ALCS between the Rangers and Yankees are as close as you can get - the Yankees are slight -109 road favorites, while the Rangers are set at -101 baseball betting home underdogs.

Texas is 1-3 this postseason at home, and the burden of getting it done will rest with Colby Lewis - the Game 2 winner and only member of the Rangers pitching staff to get a home playoff win. Lewis scattered six hits and two runs over 5 2-3 innings to best Phil Hughes in that game.

Texas has gotten productive at-bats from top-to-bottom in the order, which might give them an advantage with the final two games at home in the ALCS.

Hughes will get another shot at the Rangers, as the righthander will take to the mound for the Yankees. Hughes was crushed in a Game 2 loss, giving up seven runs over four innings. He would like nothing more than to help the Yankees force a decisive Game 7 on Saturday night. Hughes is known for rebounding from a bad loss, as the Yankees only once lost back-to-back when he started.

The Yankees have been struggling at the plate and, with Mark Teixiera on the shelf, others will have to come to the forefront on the road.  New York got home runs from Nick Swisher, Curtis Granderson, and Robinson Cano in Game 5, and will need another big output if they are to complete a comeback from a 3-1 deficit – something they haven’t done since 1958.

NLCS Game 6 Betting Odds Preview

Meanwhile, Roy Halladay wasn’t sensational but he did manage to earn the win over Tim Lincecum on Thursday, as the Philadelphia Phillies defeated the San Francisco Giants 4-2. That win forced a Game 6 on Saturday, and if necessary a Game 7 on Sunday in Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies will try to be the 12th team to rally from a 3-1 deficit in a best-of-seven series. [ {URL=/Stats/Matchup/Baseball/MLB/40039}NLCS Odds and Game 6 Matchup Report{/URL} ]

Roy Oswalt will take to the mound in Game 6. He is 10-0 in 12 starts at home this season, which is enough for oddsmakers to make the Phillies strong -160 favorites. Oswalt will be given the ball to try and keep the Phillies' hopes of a third NL pennant alive.

Jonathan Sanchez has a 3-1 record against the Phillies overall, but will need to pitch better if the Giants at +140 expect to advance to their first World Series since 2002. Sanchez was knocked around a bit in taking the loss in Game 2, allowing five hits and three runs over six innings.
