3 units on New York -180 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The New York Yankees are a tough team, and not too many teams would like to have to face this team day in day out. That is enough in and of itself, but how about a Yankees team that just got shutout, and is posted as a favorite in their next game? Turning back the clock to mid 2007, the Yankees have been shutout 18 times. In the game following the shutout, they have been posted as a favorite in 16 of them. What have they done? They have outscored their opponent by 3.7 runs per game and went onto a 15-1 record. Enough said. I’m on the Yankees in this one.
