The Yankees are one win away from winning the 2009 World Series as they head into tonight’s Game 5 against the Phillies up 3-1 in the best of seven. The Yankees have won back to back games in Philadelphia the past two nights, and the last three games all together. Last night the Yankees put together a three run ninth inning to take Game 4 by a score of 7-4. Alex Rodriguez hit a clutch tie breaking double, followed by Jorge Posada’s two run single to put the Yankees in charge of the World Series. Tonight’s World Series Game 5 is played in Philadelphia yet again, as the Phillies look to win at home for the first time all series. The Philadelphia Phillies will be sending their ace pitcher Cliff Lee to the mound for Game 5. Cliff Lee is 3-0 with a 0.54 ERA in his four postseason starts so far, including his complete game in game 1 against the Yankees. Righty AJ Burnett will get the start for the Yankees, with a chance to wrap up the World Series. Burnett got the win in Game 2 of this series, allowing 1 run and striking out nine hitters. Burnett has started four games in these playoffs and has had great performances in three of the four. First pitch for this Yankees vs Phillies World Series Game 5 is set for 7:57 PM EST.

Yankees vs Phillies Predictions:
Final Score Prediction – Yankees 4 Phillies 3
Money Line Prediction – Take the YANKEES to win on the money line at +145 (A $100 bet pays out $245). With those kinds of odds on this hot Yankees team it is impossible not to bet it. The Yankees have AJ Burnett on the mound who, besides one bad game, has been pretty much lights out in these playoffs. Going against a very good an hot Cliff Lee I think it will be a close game, but with the Yankees hitting very clutch right now I can’t stay away from these +145 odds on the Yankees to win – Bet the Yankees to win online at www.Bodog.com
Over Under Prediction – Bet the UNDER in this Yankees vs Phillies World Series Game 5 game. The under is 8-3 in the two teams last 11 meetings. With AJ Burnett and Cliff Lee on the mound for a game that could end the season it should be low scoring. Both pitchers have been great in these playoffs and look for them to continue the trend. A $120 bet on the under 8.5 total runs pays out $200 at Bodog.com.
