Yankees are Worth a Look on the Runline Given Today’s Pitching Matchup

Big Sexy Bartolo Colon goes to the bump on hump day looking to salvage an important win against the Yankees. The 44-year-old Dominican will be going head-to-head with another DR hurler who’s about half his age and who’s been absolutely dealing all year save a couple of blow-ups.

  • The Yankees are 11-2 SU in their last 13 games with Luis Severino as the starting pitcher.
  • The Twins are 4-13 SU in their last 17 games against the Yankees.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of the Twins’ last 7 games.

That man is Luis Severino (13-6, 2.93 ERA). The 23-year-old has been electrifying since the all-star break, going 8-2 in 12 starts with an eye-popping 2.09 ERA, forcing his way into the AL Cy Young conversation.

Bartolo, on the other hand, has been pegged with three straight losses, allowing 12 earned runs in his last 14.1 innings pitched. You have to love Colon and the fact that he’s still pitching at his size and age but he’s heavily outgunned in this matinee matchup today.

Combine the ease in which Sev has been shutting down opponents with the run support he’s likely going to receive from a red-hot offense and you’ve got the ingredients for a Yankees’ runline win. Let’s stick it in the oven for about three hours this afternoon and see what happens.
