4* Monday Night Baseball SMASH (ESPN) on Yankees +125
The Rangers look like they might be the best team in the league so far, but the Yankees have had their number. New York is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings and 7-1 in the last 8. The Yanks have scored 12 runs in 3 of their last 4 wins versus the Rangers while winning those games by at least 7 runs.
New York could be poised to put another big number on the scoreboard as it faces Holland. The Rangers' southpaw is 0-4 (1-4 on the ML) lifetime with an ERA of 8.77 in 5 career starts versus the Yankees. He's lost each of those decisions by at least 3 runs with 3 of them coming by 7 runs or more.
The Yankees are 6-0 in Sabathia's last 6 starts vs. the Rangers, and he is 11-3 (14-5 on the ML) with an ERA of 4.60 in 19 career starts against them.
The Yankees are 5-0 in their last 5 road games, and I like them to make it 6 in a row away from home here. Take the Yanks at a great price.
