MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Yankees are 10-3 in their last 13 road games. New York is 37-15 in its last 52 Saturday games.


The Mariners are 5-11 in their last 16 home games. Seattle is 1-7 in Hernandez' last eight starts.


Lynn has had some good moments with the Yankees, but is still prone to getting shelled. Speaking of shells, Hernandez is a shell of his former dominant self. It's difficult to pick a side in this contest, but signs point toward runs being scored. Expect the offenses to bounce back after yesterday's game where pitching was the story. Take the over in this one.
