NY Yankees vs LA Dodgers Prediction

The LA Dodgers and the plus money is always attractive, and it’s a position you’re not going to get often this season. With that said, the Yankees have lost 2 or more games in a row just 5 times this season. Also, Nestor Cortes has been dominant through 40.1 home innings this season. We’re also not getting much plus money with the Dodgers, so it’s nearly a pick em spot where you should probably just pick the team you think is in better position to come away with the win. The Yankees don’t string losses together, and Cortes is money at Yankee Stadium. Give me the Yankees to win game 2 against the Dodgers.
