Athletics vs Yankees Prediction


Our prediction for this Yankees vs. Athletics matchup is to take the over, with the line sitting at 8.5 runs. We actually have the Yankees winning this one by a score of 6-5, so there is some room to take the Yankees on the money line, but we like the value on the over.

If you are looking for a starting pitcher to pick up a win, Clarke Schmidt is a better option than Joe Boyle. However, we don’t have a ton of confidence in either starter getting the win, as Boyle ranks sixth and Schmidt ninth in terms of their chances of getting a win.
