Cincinnati Reds vs New York Yankees Prediction

The New York Yankees are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're the better team and at home. However, the Yankees have been sluggish over the last couple of weeks and have let bettors down with these recent losses in the favorite role. Andrew Abbott has also been solid this season, while Carlos Rodon is coming off a horrible month of June. The value is with the Reds and the plus money in game 2. I'll take a shot with the road dog.
