Our MLB Best Bets of the Day continue with three match-ups that are sure to excite.
NY Yankees at Cleveland 7:05 PM Sabathia vs Kluber
The White Sox swept the Yankees and left them grasping for air earlier in the week. Well today, the Yankees get Sabathia back and will receive a helping hand from Corey Kluber. If the Yankees are going to get back on track today is going to be the day against Mr. Kluber.
In just four starts this year Kluber has a 1.77 WHIP and a 6.27 ERA…and a .329 BAA! The Yankees are going to win, and probably win big today, but that’s not where the money’s at. Take the over and hope for fireworks.
Pick: Over 9 (-110)
Kansas City at Boston 7:10 PM Chen vs Lester
The Red Sox have a few things going for them in tonight’s game; their offense has been picking it up lately, Jon Lester has a 2.93 ERA in August, and they get to face lefthander Bruce Chen. The Red Sox are the fourth best hitting team when facing lefties, have a .307 team BAA Chen and face the Royals pitcher at home (Chen has a 6.32 ERA on the road this season).
