Cleveland is 7-3 in their last 10 games and 2-6 in their last 8 Saturday games. The over is 4-1 in Cleveland’s last 5 road games. New York is 10-4 in their last 14 games and 2-4 in their last 5 games as a favorite. The under is 7-1 in New York’s last 8 games. The over is 11-5 in these two teams last 16 head to head meetings.

Cleveland was coming off of a sweep against the White Sox, but could only manage to score one run in the opening game of the series. The Yankees are a pretty heavy favorite in this game and for good reason. They have the better lineup and McCarty is making his first appearance, which is recipe for a Yankees win. I am taking them by 1.5.
