The New York Yankees will be desperate for a win in tonight’s game, as they do not want to make the trip to Philadelphia for the next three games being down 2-0. The Philadelphia Phillies took Game 1 of the World Series easily with Cliff Lee on the mound, taking the game 6-1. Along with Cliff Lee’s stellar performance in Game 1 was Chase Utley’s two solo home runs to help with the victory. Yankees need to win Game 2 tonight (Thursday, October 29th) to even the series, and head into Philadelphia feeling confident. New York Yankees send right handed starter AJ Burnett to the mound for Game 2 of the World Series. Burnett has pitched three games in these 2009 playoffs recording a 4.42 ERA, but hasn’t received a decision yet. In Burnett’s last two starts he was a little bit wild, but his pitching was effective. The Philadelphia Phillies turn to starting pitcher Pedro Martinez for Game 2, who looks to follow Lee’s impressive start. Martinez, who was hated by Yankees fans when he pitched for Boston, is excited for his second World Series start and first start in the new Yankee Stadium. Martinez has started only one game in these playoffs, in which he pitched 7 innings allowing 2 hits and no runs against against the Dodgers in the NLCS. Tonight’s World Series Game 2 should be very exciting – Game time is set for 7:57 PM EST. Below you will find the World Series Game 2 betting odds, lines, and our predictions.

Philadelphia Phillies @ New York Yankees WS Game 2 Prediction:
Final Score Prediction – Phillies 5 Yankees 4
Money Line Prediction – Take the PHILLIES TO WIN on the money line at +185. These are awesome odds for the Phillies to win tonight’s game and a lot higher than I was expecting after last night’s performance against CC. The Phillies have proved they are a good hitting team, and I think they will continue getting hits tonight against AJ Burnett. Pedro looked great in his only start this postseason and I think he can pull out a win tonight to go up 2-0. Bet on the PHILLIES to win on the money line.

Over Under Prediction – I have this game sitting right around the over under line at 9, but I would say bet on the UNDER 9 total runs in this World Series Game 2. The Under is 5-0 in the two teams last 5 meetings with each other. Both Martinez and Burnett are tough to hit when they have their stuff. Bet the UNDER again in tonight’s game.
