BETTING TRENDS

Cleveland are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

Cleveland are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against NY Yankees.

Cleveland are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games on the road.

Cleveland are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against NY Yankees.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of NY Yankees' last 6 games.

NY Yankees are 13-5 SU in their last 18 games.

NY Yankees are 10-2 SU in their last 12 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Guardians couldn't do much against a great performance from Gerrit Cole and the Yankees bullpen and they'll now try to tie this series by sending Shane Bieber who was pretty solid at the end of the season allowing only 1 run per game in his last 2 starts and the Guardians have won in 6 of his last 7 starts. Nestor Cortes will take the mound for the Yanks who has been insane lately and hasn't allowed a single run in his last 13.1 innings pitched. Cleveland has lost all of the last 3 games against the Yankees when Bieber has started so go with the bombers to take the lead 2-0 on this series.

PICK: Yankees ML (-140)
