Oakland Athletics vs New York Yankees prediction

The New York Yankees have one of the scarier offenses in baseball, and they're going up against Boyle, who has limited MLB experience and hasn't been good this season. Clarke Schmidt probably isn't a world beater, but it doesn't matter in this game. The Yankees offense should do work against Boyle, and that's really all there is to it. This is all about those Yankees bats putting up runs against Boyle and padding what's been a strong start to the 2024 MLB season. There's not much left to say here. Give me the Yankees and the RL for max betting value. I want nothing to do with the A's in this matchup.
