Game Info: Sunday, June 25, 2023 at 1:35 p.m. EST (Yankee Stadium)

Betting Odds: Yankees (-115) / Over/Under (7.5)

Pick: Yankees ML (-115)

Sunday gives us a rubber match between two AL teams that have high aspirations for the year when the Texas Rangers face off with the New York Yankees inside Yankee Stadium. 

The Rangers have cooled off a bit over their last ten games (6-4), but still have a chance to take the series from the Yankees on Sunday. At the beginning of the year, not many would have guessed that the Rangers would have been in first place at almost the midpoint of the season, but here we are. Coming into this one with a  stellar 47-29 record, they are 6.0 games up on the Los Angeles Angels for the top spot in the AL West. One of the main reasons why they are in this position is because of the man who is on the bump for Texas today. Nathan Eovaldi is in the Cy Young talk, with a 9-3 record and 2.80 ERA. In front of a raucous New York crowd, can he stay on a roll to silence the crowd from the first pitch?

After stringing together a good run of games in the past few weeks, the Yankees have fallen back to Earth, going 4-6 over their last ten games. Nonetheless, they will have their ace on the mound as they try and take the series from the Rangers. After he struggled at times in 2022, Gerrit Cole has pitched outstandingly this year. He has a 8-1 record while boasting a 2.64 ERA. As the Yankees try to stay afloat and keep themseleves in the Wild Card race in the AL, every fifth day they will rely on Cole to deliver to the best of his abilities. Moving on towards the Yankees lineup at the moment, it looks unrecognizable from what it was one season ago. Aaron Judge being sidelined is their biggest concern at the moment though, as his void in the meat of the lineup is a problem that is next to impossible to fix overnight. If the Yankees are to stay in the mix, they will need veterans like Giancarlo Stanton and Anthony Rizzo to hold the fort down until Judge is able to make a comeback. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- New York is 31-20 in non-Division games

- The Yankees are 37-25 when playing on no rest

- The over is 15-8 when the Rangers have played non-Division opponents

Sunday's matchup is setting up to be one of the best pitching battles of the season so far, with Eovaldi and Cole both putting their best foot forward in the 2023 campaign. Despite this, I can not pass up the opportunity to take Cole at home as a pick'em. Over his last four starts, he has let up one or less earned run in three of those starts. Give me the Yankees to get a lengthy start from him and to take the series from the Rangers!
