Yankees on Dodgers picks and predictions

Prediction

Dodgers 4, Yankees 3

money line

LEAN DODGERS (-145).

The Dodgers are dominant at home and the Yankees are good on the road, and with teams as close as these 2, the Dodgers’ 19-8 home record is enough to give them the edge.

Running line/Against the spread

APPROVE.

This is a very close matchup, so the Yankees should be able to make this a close game, but at +1.5 (-165), the risk here isn’t worth it. Bet on the money line or O/U instead.
