Baseball Betting Free Pick: New York Yankees at San Francisco Giants
FREE PICK: New York Yankees at San Francisco Giants
#930 San Francisco -105 (Saturday, April [email protected]:05pm EST)
The Yankees continue to skirt disaster while the injury bug runs rampant through their clubhouse. Yes, they’ve won seven of their last eight, but it’s difficult to ignore the injury list to catch-up with them. The list is long starting with big boppers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton. Still it continues with key cogs Greg Bird, Troy Tulowitzki, Clint Frazier, Aaron Hicks and Dellin Betances. JA Happ will toe the rubber for the Yankees this afternoon, while enduring a rough start to the campaign. Overall, Happ’s ERA remains a bloated 5.96 with the analytics telling a similar story. Age is perhaps catching-up with the 36-year-old as his stuff is unquestionably down a couple notches from recent additions. Note the Yankees bullpen has worked hard the last week with all the key pieces throwing in last night’s victory. Derek Holland will start for the Giants, as the now crafty veteran totes a 4.33 ERA after flashing a surprising 3.57 number a year ago. Note the strikeouts are up for Holland as he regains form, while throwing his slider much more this season as a catalyst pitch. The underrated Giants bullpen is on much better footing than their opposition on Saturday keying the path to victory.
