7* NY Yankees (7:05 ET): The Yankees failed to sweep the Astros yesterday, instead losing 7-4, but I don’t think there’s any denying the fact that the team wearing pinstripes has turned things around of late. The Bronx Bombers are 10-4 their L14 games and were in position to sweep the last series as they led the Astros 3-2 before uncharacteristically giving up five runs across the final two innings. No team in the American League is giving up fewer runs per game than are the Yanks (3.5) and I like them to bounce back with a win today in the opener of a three-game set with Washington. 

This being an interleague series, the Nationals get to use the DH. But they might need more than that after going 1 for 21 with runners in scoring position in the last series, which saw them get swept at home by the Braves. They were 1 for 12 w/ RISP yday alone. It’s not been a great start to the season for the Nats, who are 12-15 and in last place in the NL East. They have the 4th worst run differential (-22) in all of baseball and second worst in the National League. It certainly doesn’t help that Friday starter Patrick Corbin has an 8.10 ERA and 1.757 WHIP in five starts this year. He’s been particularly bad on the road.

For the Yankees, Friday starter Jameson Taillon has been solid at home where he’s got a 2.54 ERA and 0.954 WHIP. Visiting teams are scoring just 3.2 runs per game here at Yankee Stadium while batting .193. So, again, the addition of a DH to their lineup is not necessarily a “panacea” for Washington here. Corbin has been better after getting rocked each of his first two starts, but he still has just as many walks as strikeouts in his L2 outings and he’s allowed seven home runs already. The Yankees are 90-43 at home the L3 seasons. 7* NY Yankees

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
