The Oakland A’s and the New York Yankees meet in MLB action from Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.
The Yankees are -230 home favorites while Oakland is a +195 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 9 runs.
Starting Pitching Matchup
Drew Rucinski will start for Oakland here and is 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA and 4 strikeouts this season. New York will send Clarke Schmidt to the mound here and he is 0-3 with a 5.83 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season.
New York’s 7-2 win on Monday snapped Oakland’s two-game head-to-head win streak in this matchup.
Oakland is 19-49 in their last 68 games overall and 19-43 in their last 62 road games while the over is 18-7-1 in their last 26 games against a team with a winning record. New York is 68-32 in their last 100 home games and 4-10 in their last 14 games against the AL West while the under is 20-6 in their last 26 home games.
I’m backing Oakland +1.5 here. I just don’t feel that the Yankees should be this heavily favored with Clarke Schmidt on the mound. I get why they are though, and the word is that Aaron Judge could ome back for this game, but I’m just not buying it. The Yankees are 0-7 on the run line in Schmidt’s starts this year and I think it’s a one run game if the A’s don’t win it outright. Give me Oakland +1.5 here.
