Yankees Have Been Worth the Price as Chalk

With the 2017 MLB trade deadline upon us, the Detroit Tigers appear to be in selling mode. A date with the New York Yankees awaits them today, where sportsbooks opened the Yanks as -180 home favorites with a total of 8.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of the Yankees' last 12 games against right handed starting pitchers.
  • The Tigers are 1-4 SU in their last five games on the road with Michael Fulmer as the starting pitcher.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Tigers' last three games against the Yankees.

Michael Fulmer and Luis Severino are expected to get the nod in this one. Fulmer (10-8, 3.35 ERA) has reached the eight inning mark in four of his last six starts, notching 24 strikeouts and four walks in that span. The 24-year-old threw six scoreless innings at Yankee Stadium last year in his only career matchup vs the Bronx Bombers.

Severino (7-4, 3.03) has gone 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA over his last four outings. He did drop his only start against the Tigers last year, however, allowing three runs and 10 hits in five innings of work.

Backing the Yankees as chalk has been a profitable endeavor lately. In New York’s previous nine when tabbed as faves, they’re 7-2 SU.
