Shane’s Free Pick
This Yankees offense hasn’t been good enough, and they are going to struggle again in this game. Glasnow has been strong this season and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. The Yankees aren’t going to get that success from Judge, and the rest of the offense is going to follow suit by struggling. Back the under to cash here.
