Chi White Sox vs. NY Yankees, 06/28/2012 19:05
Total: -110/+10 Over
MLB FREE PICK: White Sox/Yankees OVER 10
I'll take my chances on the White Sox and Yankees putting up a big number tonight. Chicago is coming off a 12-5 win at Minnesota on Wednesday, a game in which they had a ridiculous 21 hits. The Yankees won 5-4 against Cleveland, and have now scored at least 5 runs in each of their last four games.
What really makes me like the OVER is the pitching matchup. The White Sox will send out Dylan Axelrod, who has a 5.59 ERA and 1.449 WHIP in two starts. Not exactly the kind of numbers you want going into hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium with the way New York is swinging the bats.
The Yankees will counter with Ivan Nova. While Nova has an impressive 9-2 record, he has a 5.35 ERA and 1.526 WHIP in six starts at home. A lot of people will look at Nova's 1.33 ERA over his L3 starts, but all three of those starts came on the road.
Another factor you have to take into consideration is the heat wave that has taken over pretty much the entire country. The high is suppose to be 90 degrees in New York today. There's no denying the fact that the baseball goes a lot farther when it's this hot out and when you combine that with the way the ball flies out of Yankee stadium, you get a lot of runs. BET THE OVER!
