We came in with a winner once again for our Sportsbook Room visitors as the New York Yankees got the win against the Washington Nationals as another best betting pick comes through. It was another solid outing from Phil Hughes as that’s now three good starts in a row for the right hander as he allowed the anemic hitting Nationals club just one earned run and six hits with nine strikeouts over six innings of work. The Yankees bats had a great history against Gio Gonzalez and the Bronx Bombers were able get to the Nationals lefty for three earned runs over six innings and piled on four more against the Nationals bullpen to win 7-2 as an underdog.

Taking the mound for the Chicago White Sox tonight will be right hander Phillip Humber who makes his 12th start of the 2012 season. Humber has had a rough year as he sits with an ERA nearing 6 runs and a WHIP of 1.43. The White Sox are giving up nearly 7 runs per game in his starts because when Humber leaves the game the team is often trailing and that means the team’s best relievers are not in the ballgame. Humber has allowed five earned runs per start in three of his past four outing and in two straight.
LA Dodgers starter Chad Billingsley returns to the mound at Dodger Stadium with some confidence as the right hander is coming off two straight quality starts. He allowed one earned run in each of his starts against the Philadelphia Phillies and Seattle Mariners and went seven strong innings in each game. LA has been a good home team at 23-11 on the year and the pitching matchup is favorable so play the Dodgers and before you do read online sportsbook reviews.
