Yankees vs Cardinals Betting Outlook
The Yankees come into Friday night’s game on a bit of a slump for their standards, as they are 5-5 in their last 10 games and come into the game on a two-game losing streak thanks to the Seattle Mariners. The 70-win Yankees have a worse record on the road than they do at home, but that’s because Yankee Stadium was built for ants, not Major League Baseball.
The Yankees are 25-25 against the spread on the road, and 29-21 straight up.
The Yankees crush right-handed pitching. They rank second in wRC+, third in wOBA, third in OPS, and first in ISO. This is thanks to the help of American League Most Valuable Player front runner, Aaron Judge. The slugger is leading the major leagues in home runs by 10 (43) as well as driving in 93 runs with 10 stolen bases to add along with that. Aaron Judge bet on himself this offseason, and that really seems to be working out.

One of my favorite trends on the season, is taking the Cardinals in some aspect when they go up against left-handed pitching.
The Cards rank second in wRC+, third in wOBA, and second in OPS against left-handed pitchers this season. The Cards also really enjoy playing at home in Busch Stadium. The team is 32-20 straight up at home and 28-24 against the spread. The Cardinals come into this game, crushing the Cubs’ dreams after sweeping them in a three-game set.

Yankees vs Cardinals Pick & Prediction
I’ve gotten in the lab, and found a play that is already a winner. Go to the old sportsbook machine and place a wager on the OVER 8.5 at -105 in the Yankees vs Cardinals odds at Caesars Sportsbook.
The Yankees crush right-handed pitching, and the Cardinals hit lefties really well, so I expect there to be a decent amount of runs (more than 8.5) in this interleague matchup.
