The MLB is back in action today as the New York Yankees will clash with the Los Angeles Dodgers. This is game one of a three-game set that will take place at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California.
New York Yankees Form
The Yankees are one of the best teams in the MLB this season. Moreover, they have the 2nd best record in the MLB and the best record in the American League. However, it seems that they have become complacent at this stage of the season. To be more specific, New York is heading into this game with 5 defeats in a row. And it seems that they pitching dropped a little bit and that is why they suffered lately.
On the offensive side of the game, the Yankees score an average of 5.88 runs per game which is the best record in the MLB in scoring. On the mound, they are 15th in the league in ERA at 4.52, while also ranking 14th in WHIP at 1.32 and 6th in K’s with 1169.
Los Angeles Dodgers Form
The Dodgers are simply the best team in the MLB at the moment. Moreover, they have now an opportunity to show that against the closest rivals the Yankees. Also, this LA team needs to win as it suffered in their last two games against the Braves. The Dodgers bounced back from their series against the Braves to take the first two games of their series with the Blue Jays. This is a great team and the main favourite for the title this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Dodgers score an average of 5.55 runs per game. On the mound,they are 1st in the league in ERA at 3.35, while also ranking 1st in WHIP at 1.11 and 7th in K’s with 1167.
The Yankees have been great throughout the season but it seems that they have become a bit complacent lately. On the other side, the Dodgers are in a commanding form and are the best team in the MLB at the moment. Also,they have a home-field advantage in this game. Therefore, take the Dodgers in this one.
