3 units on New York -112 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
My how things have changed. The Yankees usually lay a price higher than they should due to their name. But now, after losing six of their last ten, and struggling offensively, we actually get some value on them with Mike Mussina on the mound, facing a young opposing pitcher. Aaron Laffey makes his first start of the season and has to face this lineup. Sure, New York's offense has struggled thus far, but who better to take advantage of? Mussina is coming off his best start of the season allowing 2 runs and 4 hits in seven innings to Chicago. The Indians are just 12-23 as a home favorite of -100 to -125 the past three seasons. This is a winnable game for New York and we think they take advantage of the situation. We'll jump on the very low line on New York that we won't see much the rest of the way.
