Moneyline: Indians +105 / Yankees -125
Over/Under: 8 runs
The Yankees (31-25) have lost 7 of their last 8 game and they are coming off losing 2 of 3 at home to their bitter rival in the Boston Red Sox. They trail the Red Sox by 2.5 games in the AL East. The Indians (30-26) are only 3-7 in their last 10 games, but they are only 1/2 game out of first place in the AL Central. MLB lines have the Yankees as the slight home favorite with a total of 8 runs.
In their last games the Yankees lost to the Boston Red Sox 3-0 and the Indians lost to the Tampa Bay Rays 11-3.
On the season the Indians have an Over/Under record of 28-24 and a run-line W/L record of 25-31 and the Yankees have an Over/Under record of 22-29 and a run-line W/L record of 30-26.
This season the Yankees are 16-13 at home and the Indians are 12-14 on the road.
In losing 7 of their last 8 games the Yankees are only hitting .214 as a team and their pitching has not been much better with a 5.05 ERA.
Justin Masterson (8-3 3.07 ERA) gets the start for the Indians tonight and he was solid in his last start giving up 1 earned run in 6 innings in a win over the Cincinnati Reds.
Andy Pettitte (4-3 3.83 ERA) goes for New York tonight and he is coming off the DL for his first start since the middle of May when he gave up 2 earned runs in 4 innings in a loss to the Seattle Mariners.
Masterson is 3-1 with a 1.93 ERA in his last 4 starts and while he is 4-2 with a 2.08 ERA in 7 career starts against the Yankees he is only 0-2 with an ERA of 4.34 in 3 starts in New York.
Pettitte is 3-0 with a 1.84 ERA over his last 5 starts against the Indians.
The Yankees have won 8 of their last 9 home games against the Indians.
With their recent offensive woes the Yankees now only rank 21st in the Majors in runs while the Indians rank 6th.
In some betting trends for this AL match up the Indians are 3-7 in their last 10 games, 5-1 in Masterson’s last 6 starts, and they have an Over record of 5-1-1 in their last 7 road games.
The Yankees are 1-4 in their last 5 home games, 41-20 in Pettitte’s last 61 starts, and they have an Under record of 5-2 in their last 7 games.
The Yankees are 4-0 in their last 4 home starts with Pettitte on the mound.
Jason’s Pick: Something tells me Pettitte will give the Yankees a spark, which they sorely need, and he will carry them to a win in the first game if this 3-game series.
