New York is 4-6 in their last ten games, 3-4 on the road this season, and 6-9 as the favorite. The under is 11-7 in their games.

Cleveland is 4-6 in their last ten games, 4-3 at home this season, and 1-5 as the underdog. The under is 10-7 in their games.

The Yankees have now won 2 of their last 3 and have a chance to get going with another win here. Montgomery has pitched well this season and will be backed by a bullpen with the lowest ERA and WHIP in the majors. The Yankees have also been slightly better against lefties than Cleveland. The game is not played on paper, but the Indians have not fared well as the underdog this season. Give me the Yankees to win.
