, the New York Yankees are going to hit a lot of home runs during the 2019 season. in long balls during the upcoming campaign, and Yankees sluggers Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge topped the list. Stanton was given +700 odds (bet $100 to win $700), while Judge checked in at +1,000.Los Angeles Angels center fielder Mike Trout, Boston Red Sox designated hitter J.D.

Martinez: +1800Joey Gallo: +1800Khris Davis: +2000Bryce Harper: +2500Nolan Arenado: +2500(Odds via BetOnline) zD2Mv0RcfwWhile he may not have the name recognition across fanbases throughout the league as Trout, Stanton and Judge, Oakland Athletics designated hitter Khris Davis appears to be the best value bet. He is sixth on the list at +2,000 and is coming off a season that saw him lead the league in home runs with 48.He has also been a steady source of long-ball consistency after drilling more than 40 in each of the last three seasons Christian Yelich Jersey
, so there is no reason to think 2018 was an anomaly.As for the Yankees sluggers, Stanton hit 38 last season, and Judge blasted 27 in 2018, although it should be noted the latter dealt with injury concerns and played just 112 games. Stanton was also adjusting to the American League and a new environment after he was traded from the Miami Marlins.They each flashed their high ceiling when it comes to homers in 2017 when Stanton hit a head-turning 59 and Judge finished with 52. Either of those numbers would have led the league in 2018.Even if they fall short of Davis' total again, the fact the two favorites on this list of odds are in the same lineup should serve as a warning to the rest of the American League as the season approaches. Tim Warner/Getty ImagesThe World Series champion Houston Astros will try to continue their recent success at Fenway Park on Saturday, when they visit the Boston Red Sox as small road underdogs at sportsbooks for Game 1 of the American League Championship Series.The Astros have won six of their past nine games against the Red Sox at Fenway, according to the OddsShark MLB Database, and knocked them out of last year's playoffs with a 5-4 victory in Game 4 there. Boston will be out to avenge that defeat.

The Astros won two more games during the regular season this year than last and four more on the road, where they led MLB with an outstanding 57-24 mark.In fact, Houston's road record was better than every other team's in baseball at home except that of Boston, which went 57-24 at Fenway. The Astros will send Justin Verlander (16-9, 2.52 ERA) to the mound in the series opener http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey
, and he earned three-quarters of his wins away from home in 2018, going 12-2 with a 2.14 ERA.Why the Red Sox Can Pay on the MLB LinesThe Red Sox will count on ace Chris Sale (12-4, 2.11 ERA) to come through for them in this crucial spot, and he picked up a victory in Game 1 of the AL Division Series versus the New York Yankees after allowing two runs and five hits in 5.1 innings with two walks and eight strikeouts.Sale let his team down in last year's ALDS matchup and will be out to redeem himself here, and Boston's bats have improved since then, with the two league MVP favorites in Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez. While Betts is expected to win MVP honors, Martinez has been much better in the playoffs with a .357 batting average, one home run and six RBI in the four-game series win over New York. Smart Betting PickMartinez may make the difference for the Red Sox this time around http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey
, as he has hit well against most of Houston's pitchers over the course of his career, including Verlander (2-for-3 with two RBI). That said, this is a must-win matchup for the Red Sox鈥攁nd especially Sale. If they lose Game 1, they will be big dogs to win the series.
