Pick: Guardians ML (+120)

This game was originally supposed to take place on Friday night as the opening game of the series between the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Guardians. However, the game was delayed due to inclement weather, and that means it will be made up as part of a day and night doubleheader here on Saturday afternoon in Cleveland. As this will serve as the opening of the series between two of the hottest teams in all of baseball right now. Both teams come into this game leading their respective divisions through the first couple weeks of the season. Now Cleveland and New York will take the field for the opening game of this doubleheader looking to grab an upper hand in the series. 

Unsurprising to nobody, the New York Yankees are off to a quality start this season and they will look to keep the momentum rolling throughout this game on Saturday afternoon. They come to Cleveland as one of the best teams in baseball at the moment, and they have had success against the Guardians at Progressive Field in the past. That is something they will look to maintain throughout this doubleheader as well, as New York looks to improve upon their solid start of the season and get a leg up on the rest of the teams in the American League East division. 

New York comes into this game having already hit double digit victories on the season with 10 wins through their first 13 games of the year. they will be searching for victory number 11 in the opening game of this doubleheader on Saturday afternoon as they look to grab the first victory in the series against Cleveland. They could potentially clinch the series with a sweep of the doubleheader on Saturday if they can get the job done in game one. Taking the mound for the Yankees in this one will be Cody Poteet, and he will be making his first appearance of the 2024 season. This will be his first major league appearance with the Yankees and his first since 2022.

The Cleveland Guardians are off to a surprising start to the 2024 season. With a brand new first year manager after the retirement of Terry Francona and a lot of new young players in the lineup, many people had them pegged as a rebuilding team this season. However, they have come out of the gate fast winning nine out of their first 12 on the season and they will look to pick up a much-needed measuring stick victory against the Yankees here on Saturday afternoon. If they could grab a victory in the game of this doubleheader against a young and inexperienced pitcher, it would give them a solid headstart going into the rest of the weekend and give them an opportunity to win this series against the Yankees as well. 

Cleveland has used a solid mix of pitching and timely hitting to get the job done throughout the early part of the regular season. They will look to keep that trend rolling with another solid performance here at home on Saturday afternoon against a tough New York Yankees team. Cleveland will look to grab their tenth victory of the regular season in this game and take one more step forward to increasing their lead in the American League Central division. The Guardians are coming off of a series victory against the Chicago White Sox in their previous series. Carlos Carrasco will search for his first victory of the season here on Saturday afternoon, as he gets the start for Cleveland. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Cleveland is 2-1 at home this season 

- Cleveland is 9-3 against the AL this season

- Cleveland is 6-2 after a win this season 

I expect the Cleveland guardians to take advantage of the fact that New York is starting a relatively inexperienced starting pitcher for this game on Saturday afternoon. As I look for Cleveland to put some runs up on the board early and use their solid pitching to control the pace of this game. As I look for Cleveland to pick up the victory in the first game of the doubleheader on Saturday afternoon as a series victory over the Yankees on Saturday.
