#929 ASA PLAY ON 8* NY Yankees -120 over Los Angeles Dodgers, Saturday at 7:15 PM ET - We will go action on the pitchers here. The Dodgers have Michael Grove listed as a starter and the Yankees are expected to start Gerrit Cole here. The odds that both pitchers get scratched is, of course, very minimal and this is both a play on Cole and a play against Grove so we are in good shape either way. Cole has been solid in 3 of his 4 road starts this season. Though he enters this one off allowing bigger earned runs in his last 2 starts, the most recent one saw him give up only 4 hits in 6 innings while striking out 9. So, the point is that he is providing some line value here off a start where he deserved better. Even off the B2B tougher outings, Cole has been very strong this season with a 6-0 record and a 2.93 ERA. Certainly he rates a huge edge over Grove. The Dodgers 26-year old righty is in just his 2nd season. So far, at the MLB level, he has a 5.96 ERA in 11 games (10 starts). Opponents are hitting .313 against him this season. This game starts at 4:15 local time in Los Angeles. Note that New York has won 17 of 23 day games this season and heading into this series the Yankees were 9-3 in interleague action this season and the Dodgers were 3-3 against AL teams this season. The Dodgers are only 10-9 in day games this season while NY has that 17-6 mark under the sun this season! Also, LA actually has seen their bullpen struggle this season. This is rare for the Dodgers but they are 27th in the majors for bullpen ERA while the Yankees are ranked #1 in the majors for bullpen ERA. So, all factors considered, a lot of value with the road team at a very fair money line price in this one. Look for New York to bounce back off that 8-4 loss yesterday. Yankees get the win this afternoon in LA.
