New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are on a roll — they’ve won six straight and eight of the last 10 games. It’s safe to say that this team has found its groove after a sluggish start to the season. Despite a myriad of injured players including Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Clint Frazier, the Yankees are finding ways to win.
Friday, James Paxton will get the start on the mound. This season, he’s 2-2 with a 3.10 ERA. Over 29.0 innings of work, Paxton has a brilliant walk-to-strikout ratio. He has 43 strikeouts to just eight walks, and he’s given up a total of 10 earned runs. Paxton is the guy you want on the mound, especially when his pitching counterpart is SF’s Madison Bumgarner.
With Bumgarner on the mound, runs won’t come at a premium. That means the Yanks will have to capitalize on any opportunity to bring in runs. In terms of RBIs, the man on top right now — with so many guys on the IL — is DJ LeMahieu. The second baseman has 13 RBIs this season and is batting a respectable .282.
San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants have looked better recently, winning three in a row. Most recently, they recorded a 4-0 shutout over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday. After a day of rest, they’ll start this weekend series against New York.
First up for pitching duties will be the Giants’ ace, Madison Bumgarner. No doubt he’s still “the guy” for San Fran, but his season hasn’t gotten off to the best start. He’s 1-3 with a 3.66 ERA. In his 32.0 innings of work, Bumgarner has recorded 30 strikeouts and just five walks, but he’s given up 26 hits and 13 runs.
At the plate, the Giants have struggled, even in their victories. The team has scored just 78 runs in 25 games to date — an average of 3.12 per game. The batting has been just putrid outside of a few anomalies. None of the main batting order is batting over .232, with Kevin Pillar sitting right at that number.

Free New York Yankees vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
How can you rely on the Giants when their batting is so atrocious? I like Paxton starting for the Yankees in this one and he should have a solid outing. New York gets the win in this one, handing Bumgarner yet another loss.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: New York Yankees ML
If you catch the line at -111 or around there, there’s good value in taking the Yankees. I think they’ll win somewhat easily due to San Fran’s issues at the plate.
