The under is 4-0 in New York’s last 4 games and the under is 4-0 in Severino’s last 4 starts on grass. The Tigers are 0-4 in their last 4 home games with the total set between 7-8.5 and the under is 5-1 in Detroit’s last 6 games on grass. The under is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings. The Yankees are 3-5 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in Detroit.

Detroit’s offense has struggled to start the season and the injuries are starting to pile up. The Yankees have Severino on the mound and he should have a solid day pitching against a below average offense. The Tigers starter, Rodriguez, has had two rough starts to open the year and I cannot back him here. I am taking the Yankees by 1.5.
