Probable Pitching Matchup – Montgomery vs. Clevinger
Montgomery is 7-6 on the season with a 4.15 ERA. He started really well for the Yankees this season but he seems to have hit the rookie wall. He is 1-2 with a 6.46 ERA in his last three starts. He could also find himself out of the starting rotation when the Yankees go back to a five man starting staff.
Clevinger is 5-4 with a 3.68 ERA. He did not pitch well last time out, as he allowed five runs and seven hits in three innings against Boston. This will be his first career start against the Yankees
The Yankees had taken six of the last ten against Cleveland before this series began, with four of the last six going over the total. The teams had split their last ten in Cleveland, with the last three going over the total.
Yankees vs. Indians Free Picks
The Yankees and Indians are two of the highest scoring teams in the league. The Yankees are 3rd in the league in runs per game, while the Indians are 8th. Montgomery looks nothing like he did earlier this season and will probably be moving out of the starting rotation and Clevinger is coming off a very poor outing against Boston. This has all the looks of a high scoring game, so I will go over the total on Saturday night. Make sure to check back for odds at BetDSI.
