The more things change the more things stay the same for MLB betting. As the season wraps up, baseball betting fans from around the league are expecting a repeat in Cy Young Award winners this season. That’s right sports fans, as the season wraps up, your two potential Cy Young winners for each league are former winners of the prestigious award. Here is a look at the two pitchers we think will win their second ever CY Young’s.
Over in the American League, the New York Yankees have been absolutely dominant in regular season play. The team’s play can be accredited to the ace of their pitching staff CC Sabathia, a former Cy Young Award winner. This season, Sabathia the big lefty, has been ferocious. He’s piled up an overall win loss record of 19 wins and six losses, with an earned run average of just over three over 200 plus innings. Sabathia is most impressive when he is at home at the new Yankee Stadium.
Since signing with the Yankees in the 2009 offseason, Sabathia has been a machine at home. He has not lost a game at New Yankee Stadium since July of 2009 and leads the team in complete games. If he is to not get the AL CY Young, it will be one of the biggest injustices in the sports world.
Conversely, over in the National League, Philadelphia Phillies ace right hander Roy Halladay, is looking to win his second ever CY Young. Halladay won his first and only best pitcher award back in Toronto in 2003 with a record of 22 and seven. Now seven years later, Halladay is posting another brilliant record at 17 – 10 with a 2.36 earned run average over a span of 221 innings while leading the league in complete games. Halladay may be scorned of another CY Young, due to the brilliant season of Colorado Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez. Nevertheless, Halladay has remained a dominant force in the league all season round, where as the younger Jimenez has cooled off since winning his 15th game in July.
