Expert Score & Prediction
This should be a pretty fun game between a Yankees team that needs to find offense, and a Rangers team that has started pretty well. Luis Severino was a huge prospect coming up, but has certainly fallen short of expectations. The Yankees lineup has a ton of big bats, but that begs the question – has old finally hit them too hard? The Yankees will struggle on the road in this game. Look for A.J. Griffin to pick up his third win of the season. The bet here is the Texas Rangers -128 over the New York Yankees on Tuesday. The final score prediction for this game is the Texas Rangers 7-2 over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.
