Athletics vs Yankees Prediction

New York comes into this series with one of the best records in the MLB and their pitching staff has been elite to start the season. The Yankees have a team ERA under three and they are 6-3 at home. Oakland played decently well through their first 14 games or so, but they have lost five of their last six. The A’s are starting JP Sears, who has allowed one earned run and three hits over 11.1 innings in his last two starts. The Yankees are going with Carlos Rodon, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in all four starts this year. Rodon has allowed quite a few base runners this season, but the Oakland offense has been awful this year. Take the Yankees -1.5 here.
