New York Yankees vs. Chicago White Sox Betting Predictions

The Yankees enter Saturday’s matchup with a four and a half game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East. New York had themselves a day in game one of this series, with a final score of 15-7. This Yankees lineup has been a nightmare for opposing pitchers, with an average of 4.83 runs per game. Aside from allowing seven runs on Thursday, New York’s bullpen has been great and are holding teams to 2.75 runs per game. The left-hander Jordan Montgomery is scheduled to start Saturday. Montgomery is 0-1 in six games this season with an ERA of 2.90 and has given up 24 hits, 10 earned runs, and struck out 25 batters in 31.0 innings.  

The Chicago White Sox are currently tied with the Cleveland Guardians for second place of the AL Central, two games behind the Twins for first place. The White Sox struggled against the Yankees in game one, but have won seven of their last nine games. The offense is starting to pick it up a bit with 21 runs scored over their last three games. The bullpen struggled through their first 15 games, but have held opponents to three runs or less in eight of their last 11 games. Left-handed pitcher Dallas Keuchel is expected to take the mound Saturday. Keuchel is 2-3 in five games this season with an ERA of 6.86 and has allowed 32 hits, 16 earned runs, and struck out 13 batters in 21.0 innings of work.  

I like the Yankees to cover the –1.5 runline in this matchup. Dallas Keuchel has struggled in the majority of his starts this season and will be going against one of the top lineups in baseball. Montgomery has pitched well and should go six to seven innings in this one. Backing the Yankees –1.5.
