The Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees play the second game of what might be a World Series preview on Saturday night, and we have you covered with our Dodgers vs. Yankees player props based on the best MLB odds.

This Dodgers-Yankees interleague clash features two of the five teams in Major League Baseball with winning percentages of .615 or better and two of the top four run differentials.

Since 2013, Los Angeles and New York have been the two winningest MLB franchises. Following the Dodgers' 2-1 victory in Friday's series opener, they have now won 1,032 regular-season games during this period, 92 more than the Yankees.

L.A.’s win snapped New York’s season-best eight-game winning streak and coincided with Yankees slugger Juan Soto missing his first game due to forearm soreness. Will Soto return to the lineup tonight? Can New York avoid its first losing streak since May 26-28?

First pitch is scheduled for 7:35 p.m. ET at Yankee Stadium, with the game broadcast on FOX. The Yankees are slight moneyline favorites, with lefty Nestor Cortes Jr. set to start.

Here are our best Dodgers vs. Yankees player props and MLB picks.

Dodgers vs. Yankees expert picks

Gavin Stone to record a win ⭐⭐⭐

While it seems like a bad investment to back a starting pitcher to win a start against a team with the best winning percentage in the American League, we are riding the wave of momentum Gavin Stone is on against the potentially Soto-less Yankees. 

Stone has won five of his previous seven starts, and has pitched to a 1.64 ERA since April 26. He has allowed one or zero runs six times in that span, and the Dodgers have beaten their last two opponents by a combined 7-0 margin the last two times he toed the rubber.

Los Angeles is also an MLB-best 10 games over .500 (17-7) against left-handed starting pitchers, so we expect it to score runs early off of Cortes. And while Stone recorded only 15 outs in his last start while being removed after just 75 pitches, we would expect him to throw six-plus innings just like he had in each of his previous six starts.

Bettors have their choice between DraftKings and bet365 for the best return on this wager, as both offer better value than the +159 found at Caesars.

Nestor Cortes Over 2.5 earned runs ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Cortes has egregious home/road splits this season, and has been a much better pitcher in the Bronx. In six home starts, Cortes has pitched to a 1.12 ERA, owns an 8:1 K:BB ratio, and has allowed a .170 OBA. In seven road starts, Cortes is 0-3, and those numbers inflate to a 6.17 ERA, a 3.4 K:BB ratio, and a .295 OBA.

Despite Cortes’ home success, we are still projecting a rough start for him, as his numbers are inflated by the fact that four of his six starts in the Bronx have come against bottom-five scoring teams, while the other two starts were against teams that rank 19th or worse in scoring (the Detroit Tigers and Tampa Bay Rays).

A Dodgers lineup that ranks in the top three in the majors in all three slash line categories (batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging) in road games while also ranking second in wOBA (.339) and wRC+ (120) in that split should prove to be a much tougher challenge. 

Considering the odds for this prop get as short as -160 to back the Over at BetMGM and bet365, the best value is at DraftKings.

Best odds: -115 via DraftKings

Will Smith Over 0.5 RBIs ⭐⭐⭐

There is no Dodgers hitter that has feasted on left-handed pitching more than Will Smith, as he entered Friday with a team-best 1.304 OPS and .426 batting average against southpaws.

Smith has batted cleanup in 47 of the 54 games played, which is a prime run-production spot in a lineup where the top four (Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani, Freddie Freeman, and Smith) entered Friday’s series opener slashing a collective .306/.390/.525, and whose Nos. 1-5 hitters lead the majors in OPS. And per Inside Edge, Smith has an NL-best 1.757 OPS when ahead in the count this season, while the league average is 1.094.

This is a three-star play, as Smith has at least one RBI in four of his previous seven games, and we are even more confident in him driving in at least one run tonight when facing a left-handed pitcher.

With Caesars’ odds as low as +129 for this wager, and DraftKings and BetMGM offering the next-best at +135, bet365 is our go-to shop as it offers the most enticing +140 odds with a winning $10 bet returning a $14 profit.

Best odds: +140 via bet365
