MLB Pick: Will Rogers betting the Yankees -133 odds on August 11th 2017

Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees
MLB Betting Prediction: Yankees -133 odds (August 11th 2017)

The set-up: The Red Sox got an off day Thursday and now visit the Bronx for an important three-game series with the hated NY Yankees. Boston will take an eight-game winning streak into this series, which has allowed them to open up a 4 1/2 game lead over New York in the AL East. Boston leads the AL with a 3.63 team ERA and watched its staff dominate of late, with three or fewer runs allowed in each of the last five games. “We’ve continued to pitch consistently, and that will be the key for us,” Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters after an 8-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday.” The Yankees got shut out 4-0 by the Jays on Thursday and enter this series having dropped six of their last nine games.

The pitching matchup: Eduardo Rodriguez (4-3 & 4.08 ERA) goes for Boston and Jaime Garcia (5-8 & 4.49 ERA) makes his second start as a Yankee. Rodriguez held the Chicago White Sox to two runs on four hits in six innings last Friday (Boston won 3-2), recording his first quality start in four chances since coming off the disabled list. Rodriguez is seeing New York for the first time this season but is 4-1 with a 2.66 ERA in seven career starts versus the Yankees. Garcia suffered a 7-2 loss in his New York debut last Friday, when he was ripped for six runs – five earned – on five hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings at Cleveland. He will be making his third AL start after beginning the season in Atlanta and getting traded to Minnesota before moving over to the Yankees. Garcia has never faced Boston.

The pick: These fierce, longtime rivals face each other 10 times in the next four weeks, starting tonight. Garcia is getting his introduction to this Red Sox/Yankees rivalry and New York needs him to come up big. This marks the nine-year vet’s first career start at Yankee Stadium. The bet says he rises to the challenge.

Tigers vs. Yankees MLB Odds & Prediction from John Martin: July 31st 2017

Detroit Tigers vs. New York Yankees
MLB Prediction: Tigers +217 odds (July 31st 2017)

The Detroit Tigers are worth a look today as better than 2-to-1 dogs against the New York Yankees.  The Tigers’ best starter all season has been Michael Fulmer, and he gets the ball tonight.  Fulmer is 10-8 with a 3.35 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 20 starts, and 4-5 with a 2.91 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in nine road starts.  His numbers are very comparable to those of Luis Severino of the Yankees, but since Severino is ‘hot’ of late, he is getting mad love from the books and betting public.  Fulmer pitched 6 shutout innings in his only previous start against the Yankees, a 4-1 victory in New York.  Detroit is 14-3 off a win by 8 runs or more over the last three seasons.  The Tigers are 10-3 in Fulmer’s last 13 starts vs. AL East competition.  The Yankees are 2-9 in Severino’s last 11 starts vs. a team with a losing record.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees MLB Over-Under Pick: July 28th 2017

Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees
MLB Over-Under Pick: Over 9 runs -110 odds (July 28th 2017)

Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach Free Pick for MLB Friday OVER the total in New York Yankees vs Tampa Bay Rays @ 7:05 ET – With this total dropping from a 9.5 to a 9 we are now seeing additional line value with the over in this match-up. The Rays are sending Austin Pruitt to the mound and he has been working out of the bullpen. He has not impressed as opponents are hitting .333 against him. Pruitt has compiled a 6.25 ERA in his 18 appearances (1 start) in this, his rookie, season. He has faced the Yankees twice out of the bullpen already this season and he was hit quite hard. The Yanks will have pitching issues of their own here as they hand the ball to Masahiro Tanaka for this one.

The right-hander is winless in his last 3 starts and has compiled a 6.00 ERA during this stretch. He’s facing a Rays team that has scored 5 runs in 4 of their last 5 games. As for the Yankees offensive machine, they’ve produced 5.6 runs per game in going 6-1 in their last 7 games. Look for more hot hitting from the Yanks here as they take advantage of facing an inexperienced rookie starter. As for the Rays lineup, they’ve pounded Tanaka to the tune of 13 earned runs in 5 and 2/3 innings spanning his two starts against Tampa Bay this season. More of the same in this one! Free Pick on OVER the total in the New York Yankees game early Friday evening. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach
