Runline Bettors Should Take a Look at the Bronx Bombers

Putting up more runs than they had since before the all-star break, the Yankees revved their offensive engine in the Motor City last night and they could do the same on Wednesday when they face Jordan Zimmermann (7-10, 5.87 ERA). The former ace has been awful in 2017 and he’s coming off two consecutive outings where he’s allowed seven earned runs.

SHARK BITES
  • The Tigers are 1-7 SU and on the runline in their last 8 games.
  • The Yankees are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games with Luis Severino as the starting pitcher.
  • The Yankees are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games on the road against the Tigers.

Before you go betting your bankroll on the Bronx Bombers at -190, though, it should be considered that when J-Zimm last faced the Yanks at the beginning of the month, he pitched seven frames of shutout baseball in a game the Tigers won 2-0.

That loss for New York, however, was part of a four-game losing streak where the Yanks mustered just five runs. Winning six of their last eight games while scoring an average of 5.625 runs, it’s unlikely Zimmermann has another day like he did when he last faced the Evil Empire.

Another contributing factor in this evening’s contest is Luis Severino (3.18 ERA, 10-5), the man the Yanks expect to be their ace starter going forward. He’s tossed quality starts in all but two of his eight appearances since the Midsummer Classic and he was excellent when he faced the Tigers at the end of July.
