The Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees square off in New York for Game 1 of the 2009 World Series tonight (Wednesday, October 28th). The Phillies are looking for back to back World Series championships, while the Yankees try and win the World Series in the first year in the new Yankee Stadium. Game 1 and 2 are in New York, followed by three games in Philadelphia, and game 6 and 7 if needed back at Yankee Stadium. Typical New York weather is on the forecast for tonight’s World Series game 1, with rain possibly coming down during the game. Game time for the Yankees vs Phillies World Series game 1 is set for 7:57 PM EST. The visiting Philadelphia Phillies will be sending their ace Cliff Lee to the mound for the game. Cliff Lee is 4-4 with a 5.02 ERA in nine carer starts against the Yankees and has only allowed two earned runs in 24.1 innings of work in this postseason. The New York Yankees send their lefty ace CC Sabathia to the mound for the start. Sabathia is 3-0 in these playoffs with a 1.19 ERA, recording 20 strikeouts and only giving up three walks. This is a great pitching match up of the 2007 and 2008 CY Young winners, and Game 1 looks to be very exciting.

Philadelphia Phillies @ New York Yankees Game 1 Predictions:
Final Score Prediction – Yankees 4 Phillies 2
Money Line Prediction – Bet on the YANKEES TO WIN at -168 odds. The Yankees at home with CC Sabathia on the mound are virtually impossible to beat. Sabathia has been the best player in the MLB so far these playoffs in my eyes, allowing just three earned runs in 22.2 innings of work against some good hitting teams. This will be a great pitching duo, but look for the Yankees to come out on top.

Run Line Prediction – I’ll take the +125 odds on the Yankees on the -1.5 run line. These are pretty good odds for the Yankees when CC is pitching at home. I have the Yankees winning 4-2. Bet on the Yanks on the run line.

Over Under Prediction – Take the UNDER 7.5 total runs at -110. With these two pitchers on the mound you know it will tough to score runs. The Under is 4-0 in the two teams last four meetings, and also 4-0 in their last four meetings in New York. Under is 7-1-1 in Sabathias last 9 home starts.
