Certainly Brett Anderson is better than Freddy Garcia and the Yankees at times are not great but if I don't have to lay money with what is still the definite better team then I'm all for it.
I really do like the lefty in Anderson. This kid has really good stuff and combined with Trevor Cahill are leading one of the better young pitching rotations in the game today. I don't see the southpaw embarassing himself by any means but to get Arod, Tex, Cano, Swisher, Jeter and the Bombers, even across the country, is the right side. Garcia is old and a guy that I will fade in the right spot, mainly when he is laying a ton, but this is a solid spot to back the righthander in.
Joe Girardi's club has had issues at times and they are not on the same level as the Red Sox this season. But the Yanks also are still one of the best teams in the game with a lineup that is way more high powered than the extremely mediocre Athletics. The Pinstripers were able to hit Felix Hernandez last week and just yesterday did some damage against Cahill and his one point whatever era.
This may not be a blowout as Anderson is tough but Garcia has been a lot better than expected and at this price I'll take my chances on the New Yorkers.
Top expert pick on this game: Matt Rivers says I've now cashed that ticket in 14 of the last 21 days and 54 of the last 86 for a grand total profit of 7.4 million*. The 400,000* on the small underdog Rangers were leading by a touchdown in the third inning. That's how it's done and that's how I usually do it!
Two more winners today including another monster 400,000* on the diamond involving the Padres and Braves plus a high quality 300,000* on the NBA hardwoods as I give you the side between the Mavericks and Heat. Click now to purchase
