When it comes to MLB baseball betting this late in the season, savvy sports bettors are looking for value with World Series odds.  They will look at teams that have the best record in the league and are currently red hot, not to mention a strong public team like the New York Yankees.

And the Yankees meet all this criteria.

Currently they are on a 6 game winning streak and the future bet price is 9/5Great value a la

The Yankees play another game against the Kansas City Royals Tuesday night.

A.J. Burnett (12-9, 4.19 ERA) is slated to start in this game, having had an up and down season thus far.  He was originally supposed to have started on Monday but had to spend time with his father, who had triple bypass heart surgery.  The Yankees price tag Tuesday night was over -200. 

MLB Baseball betting trends that favor the New York Yankees with Burnett starting:

The Yankees are 5-1 in Burnett's last 6 starts when their opponent scores 2 runs or less in their previous game.

The Yankees are 9-2 in Burnett's last 11 home starts with the total set at 9.0-10.5.

The Yankees are 8-2 in Burnett's last 10 starts as a home favorite.

This is Burnett's first start this year against the Royals as he seeks his 100th victory. He's 2-2 with a 3.67 ERA against them in five career outings.

Manager Joe Girardi has indicated that 19-game winner CC Sabathia will start the first playoff game, and Burnett could get the nod for Game 2.

The Yankees rested many of their regulars for Monday's 8-2 win after clinching the AL East and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs the day before by finishing a sweep of arch-rival Boston. Robinson Cano was one of the few mainstays to see action and hit a grand slam to key the win over the Royals (64-93).
