If the NL Wild Card game taught us anything Tuesday night, it's that winner takes all baseball games are impossible to predict. The Chicago Cubs were one game away from being the No. 1 seed in the NL and now they're out. 


Now, another team with an outstanding record in their league, the New York Yankees take on the Oakland Athletics Wednesday in the AL Wild Card game.


There are reasons to be very confident in the Yankees as well as the Athletics, but if you're going to bet on the game, there's a pretty good deal that you shouldn't pass up.

So if you pick the Yankees straight up to win and they do, you get whatever amount of money you bet on the -176 money line. If the Yankees can't come through for you and they lose, you still get your money back up to $50. It's nearly a no-risk bet (if you bet $50), which isn't something that comes around often. 


All you have to do is "place a bet on the Yankees to win outright before 7:59pm on Wednesday," and you're set.
