Why Bet the New York Yankees Odds
There are several good reasons to back the Yankees in this contest, starting with the fact that New York has compiled a glistening 11-3 mark on the road this season. Not only that, but the Yankees have plenty of momentum after sweeping the Cubs in a three-game set just a I predicted and bagging five straight wins overall.
Last but not least, the best reasons to back New York is that they’re smacking the cover off the ball this season as they come into this contest ranked an impressive second in scoring (5.7 rpg). The Yankees have scored five runs or more in four of their last five games while scoring eight or more three times and an identical 11 run, twice.
Why Bet the Cincinnati Reds Odds
The best reason to back the Reds in this contest is that they come into this series playing phenomenal baseball in winning five straight and seven of their last eight game overall. The Reds have also been putting their fair share of runs on the board recently as they’ve scored even or more runs three times in their last five games while scoring 13 runs or more twice along the way.
Analysis and Expert Prediction
After a pair of fine outings to start the season, C.C. Sabathia has been smacked around in three straight starts with the last two being particularly rough. Sabathia has been smacked around for 13 earned runs over his last two starts spanning just 9.2 innings and was pounded for six runs on seven hits in just four innings of an 8-6 win over Toronto on Wednesday.
Cincinnati’s Tim Alderman limited Pittsburgh to two runs over six innings of a 4-2 win on Thursday to give him his third outing in four tries where he’s limited the opposition to two runs or less.
For this matchup, I’m going to advise you to back the Cincinnati Reds to get the win by smacking the struggling C.C. Sabathia around. The Yankees may be 5-0 in their last five road games, but they’re also jut 5-11 in their last 16 road games against a right-handed starter. Cincinnati has won five straight at home while going 5-2 in their last seven Interleague games against a left-handed starter.
While the defending World Series champion Cubs didn’t beat New York in its three-game set over the weekend, the Reds will in this contest!
