MLB Sunday June 9th Dodgers at Yankees Betting Preview

Respective First Place Teams Wrap Up Their Series in the Bronx

MLB takes center stage on Sunday night when the two biggest markets meet up on ESPN for the June 9th Dodgers at Yankees betting matchup. Los Angeles (41-25) is looking for the sweep as they’ve already captured a 2-1 win on Friday at -160 and an 11-3 victory on Saturday for a great return on investment with just a -101 price tag.

New York (45-21) will try to salvage the series in front of a nationally televised audience on Sunday Night Baseball. The Yankees have been humbled a bit this weekend, scoring just 4 total runs the last two games coming off of an 8-game win streak. Oddsmakers like the Dodgers yet again though, making them a -126 favorite.

Why the Dodgers Have Value on Sunday

Many people are calling this a World Series preview, and Los Angeles will take that comparison. L.A. has proven to be the more efficient team this weekend, as the first two games of the series have seen each club collect 15 hits, but with the Dodgers outscoring the Yankees 13-4 over that span.

Los Angeles has an off day Monday after returning home from a road trip that didn’t start off the best with a 1-0 and a 10-6 loss at Pittsburgh. The Dodgers have rattled off three wins in a row now though, scoring 24 total runs in the process. Everybody in the L.A. lineup had a hit in Saturday night’s game led by Teoscar Hernandez and his 2 HR, 6 RBI evening at the plate.

L.A. pitching has been solid this weekend, with Yoshinobu Yamamoto throwing 7.0 IP on Friday night and Gavin Stone pitching into the 6th on Saturday while allowing just 2 ER. Tyler Glasnow (6-4, 2.93 ERA) tries to keep that solid pitching trend going coming off allowing just a solo HR in Tuesday’s 1-0 loss at Pittsburgh.

While the Yankees Have Value on Sunday

Few people would expect a sweep in this clash of MLB titans, but 60% of the betting public are on the Dodgers to take all three on the road. New York has seen a +140 and a -112 line in their first two defeats this series, so in a way +108 isn’t a bad price to pay for a team that’s 21-10 at home this season.

Glasnow is a tough matchup for the New York offense, but they have plenty of experience against him from his time with AL East rivals Tampa Bay. Giancarlo Stanton for example is 4-15 with 3 HRs against the new L.A. starter so there could be some offense on the table Sunday night.

Luis Gil (8-1, 1.82 ERA) heads to the bump on Sunday night which gives the Yankees instant value as he’s got the 3rd best W/L record in baseball and ranks 2nd in ERA and 5th in WHIP (0.92). Gil has allowed a total of 3ER since May 1st,, a span of 7 starts.

Free June 9th Dodgers at Yankees Betting Pick

There’s only one way to play this game – take the Yankees at home with Gil on the bump. It’s likely going to be a low scoring game with two dialed in pitchers on the hill, but New York refuses to be swept at home in the matchup that all of the TV executives are rooting for in the Fall Classic.
