NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. – The New York Yankees (5-10) will host the Atlanta Braves (7-9) on Tuesday night in the first game of a two-game series. This quick series will wrap up a five-game homestand for the Yankees before setting off for an eight-game road trip.

New York enters this matchup on a five-game losing streak while Atlanta has won three of its last four games including a 13-run explosion Sunday night.

Projected Pitching Matchup

  • NYY – Jameson Taillon (0-1, 7.56 ERA, 1.44 WHIP)
  • ATL – Charlie Morton (1-1, 4.76 ERA, 1.29 WHIP)

Jameson Taillon has had a rough start to the season. He’s pitched a combined 8.1 innings over two starts and has allowed seven earned runs on 11 hits. Taillon has had good control this year, only walking one batter and striking out 10, but has been burned by the long ball, allowing three homeruns thus far.

Charlie Morton has three starts this year and has managed to get through 17.0 innings. His numbers are inflated by one bad outing in which he went 6.0 innings and allowed five runs on seven hits. Morton’s other starts combine for 11.0 IP with four earned runs. He has only allowed one long ball this year, a trend he’ll need to keep up against the hard-swinging Yankees.

All 30 MLB teams will be in action today, and those looking to bet on MLB will have a great slate to choose from any major sportsbook.

This match in particular looks to be interesting not only from a pitching standpoint but also an odds standpoint.

Batting Stats

  • NYY – #26 in BA (.210), #22 in OBP (.296), #30 in SLG (.346)
  • ATL - #13 in BA (.235), #9 in OBP (325), #4 in SLG (.436)

It’s no secret that the Yankees are struggling to hit the ball this year. A team built on power hitters being last in the league in slugging is always a worrisome sight. However, guys like Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez only need one swing to make it count.

The Yankees have struck out in just over 25% of their at-bats this year and Morton has a 11.1 K/9 this season. The Braves lead the league with 25 home runs while Taillon has allowed a home run on over 27% of his hits allowed this season.

New York Yankees vs. Atlanta Braves Odds

  • Moneyline: Yankees -128, Braves +108
  • Runline: NYY -1.5 (+160)
  • Over/Under: O8.5 (-120), U8.5 (EVEN)

The Yankees are 0-5 in their last five games, while the Braves are 4-1 in their last 5 road games. The Over is 8-1-1 in the Braves last 10 games as well as 6-1-1 in their last eight games against a RHP.

It’s unlikely the Braves are going to be able to cover the Over by themselves, so it may come down to whether the Yankees can get their bats going or if the team-wide slump will continue.
