Prediction:

In this matchup, we predict the under of 8.5 runs as the optimal pick. Here's why:

Firstly, both starting pitchers, Carlos Rodon for the Yankees and Merrill Kelly for the Diamondbacks, have showcased strong performances early in the season, boasting impressive ERAs. With their ability to keep opposing hitters in check, we anticipate a low-scoring affair.

Secondly, despite the offensive firepower displayed by both teams, the pressure of a close matchup and the quality of pitching on display are likely to limit scoring opportunities. With tight defense and strategic pitching, runs may be hard to come by in this contest.

Considering these factors, we expect a tightly contested game with a focus on pitching dominance and defensive prowess, leading to a total score under 8.5 runs.

Pick: Under 8.5 Runs
