The Yankees and Dodgers match up today in a marquee series with a couple of less than marquee pitchers taking the mound. New York will send Bryan Mitchell to the hill as the Dodgers lean on rookie Jose De Leon.
- The Yankees are 6-1 in their last 7 games at home.
- The Yankees are 10-4 in their last 14 games after a loss.
- Both the Dodgers and Yankees have won 7 of their last 10 games.
De Leon has made just one major league start since being called up from Triple-A, where he posted an excellent 7-1 record with a 2.61 ERA. In his lone start for the Dodgers, the Puerto Rican posted a quality start and struck out nine Padres.
Bryan Mitchell made his first start of the season for the Yankees last week vs the Blue Jays after spending most of last year in the bullpen. Mitchell hurled five innings of four-hit shutout baseball against the Jays. The only player in the Dodgers’ lineup who has seen Mitchell is Trayce Thompson, who has just one at-bat against the righty.
This game is basically a toss-up based on the starters but the UNDER is trending for both teams. I tend to steer clear of moneylines in games involving pitchers I don’t know, but with a total of 9 it may pose an opportunity to take advantage of the UNDER.
