Yankees keep rolling

With a 7-6 win on Friday, the Yankees continue their impressive run, having won 13 of their last 14 games. New York is now 22-10 overall and 12-5 at home. The Yankees are averaging 5.74 runs per game this year while allowing 3.97 per contest.

Sonny Gray will hope to continue the winning for the Yankees today. He has struggled this season, posting a 1-2 record through six starts. He has a 6.67 ERA and a 1.93 WHIP with 23 strikeouts and 19 walks over 27 innings of work.

Indians hitting again

Despite the loss on Friday, the Indians still put up at least six runs for their sixth straight game. The Tribe are 17-15 overall and 6-7 on the road. Cleveland now averages 4.65 runs per game while giving up 4.26 per contest.

Trevor Bauer gets the start on Saturday for the Tribe. He is 2-2 through six starts. He has a 2.45 ERA with a 1.09 WHIP. Over 40.1 innings this season, Bauer has 46 strikeouts with 16 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Cleveland

The Indians have lost Bauer’s last four road starts and they are just 4-9 in their last 13 games against a team with a winning record.

New York

The Yankees have won eight of their last nine against a right-handed starter and eight of their last nine against a winning team. However, they are just 1-4 in Gray’s last five starts against a winning team.

Prediction:

Can Gray turn his season around today? I don’t feel great about that. Cleveland is on a nice hot streak at the plate and they send a reliable arm to the mound in Bauer. While Bauer could have some challenges with this New York lineup, I think Cleveland will be able to do more damage against Gray and ride that to a win.

 

The Pick: Cleveland Indians +115
