The New York Yankees have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring more than one run.

The under is 20-8-1 in Hollands last 29 starts overall. The over is 6-2 in Happs last 8 starts overall.
The San Francisco Giants just can't put consistent offense together, and it's an issue that hasn't changed much the last three years. It's the same team. Heck, last night was the first time this season the Giants have scored in the first inning, which was the second-longest drought in major league history. I'm tired of giving the Giants a chance with the plus money simply for the lack of run support to kill my bet. Happ is off to a slow start, but we're getting the Yankees at a very cheap price when there's clear difference in offenses, even with all of the injuries to the Yanks lineup. I have to side with the road team.
