Opening Day Odds: Yankees vs. Tigers Predictions
Opening Day odds for the New York Yankees vs. Detroit Tigers game.
The MLB season is gearing up today, with the 1:00 pm EST game between the New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers. The general consensus amongst sport bookies favors the Yanks at -145 with the over-under set at 8.
There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding the Detroit Tigers’ right hand pitcher, Justin Verlander, and whether his stats will improve this spring season. Verlander has expressed a lot of dedication about playing strong this season. In Verlander’s own words, “I’m going to treat it much more seriously. I’m not going to wait until I’ve had a couple of bad starts (during regular season) to try and figure out what’s wrong.”
The New York Yankees are at an advantage, in part because it is a home game. Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has similar stats to Verlander; Sabathia boasts a CAIRO projected 3.54 ERA/3.68 FIP while Verlander has an ERA of 3.79 and 3.58 FIP.
