New York is 5-1 in their last 6 games and 10-4 in their last 14 game three’s of a series. The over is 11-3 in New York’s last 14 games. Cincinnati is 1-5 in their last 6 game three’s of a series and 0-5 in their last 6 Sunday games. The under is 19-7 in Cincinnati’s last 26 games against the AL East. New York is 9-3 in these two teams last 12 head to head meetings. 


The Yankees have really played well over the last couple of weeks and they continue to climb the AL East standings. New York will have Luis Severino on the mound, who is making his first start of the year due to injury. Cincinnati is starting Hunter Greene, who has allowed 13 earned runs over his last 15 innings pitched. I like the Yankees to win this game by at least two runs.
