LA Dodgers vs New York Yankees Prediction

I’m on the under here. I think this has all of the makings of a bona fide pitcher’s duel Glasnow has had a ton of success in the past against the Yankees and Gil is a dark horse for the Cy Young after coming out of nowhere in spring training to earn a spot in the Yankees’ rotation which has clearly paid dividends. I think this is going to be a clinic and if you love low-scoring duels, this is for you. Give me the under.
