Failure to put something together
New York hasn’t won back-to-back games since June 11-12, but it does come off a 6-5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays as +135 home underdogs Sunday, while going OVER the betting total of 8.
The Yankees are 5-7 against National League opponents this season, with the UNDER going 10-2 in that situation.
Los Angeles has won nine of its 10 games since the MLB All-Star break, including a 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds as +102 home underdogs last time out, while going UNDER the total for a third consecutive contest.
The Dodgers are 18-5 this month—not losing a series since June 14-16.
Yankees starting pitcher Andy Pettitte (7-8, 4.39 ERA) has dropped back-to-back games, including a 3-1 road defeat to the Texas Rangers last time out, as he allowed two runs and eight hits over six frames.
The left-hander is 4-4 with a 3.51 ERA in nine road games, surrendering eight home runs in 59 combined frames.
In five career starts versus the Dodgers, Pettitte has tallied a 2-0 record and 3.94 ERA, with both of those victories coming at this ballpark.
Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke (8-3, 3.49 ERA) had his personal five-game winning streak snapped last time out, as he suffered a 5-2 home defeat to the Reds, giving up four runs and six hits over seven innings of work.
The right-hander is 5-1 with a 2.56 ERA in eight home games, issuing nine walks and striking out 42 batters in 52.2 combined frames.
In 11 career games (eight starts) versus the Yankees, Greinke has tallied a losing 2-4 record and 6.45 ERA.
I’m going to recommend that readers play the total with their MLB picks, as the OVER is 5-1 in the Dodgers’ last six games versus American League East opponents.
