About Los Angeles Dodgers LH Clayton Kershaw (11-3, 1.89 ERA)

Kershaw is working his way back into shape after spending more than two months on the disabled list with a back injury and lasted only three innings and 66 pitches while suffering a loss at Miami in his return on Friday. The former Cy Young Award winner struck out five and allowed two runs in three innings. Kershaw is expected to be on a pitch count again and will likely get pulled after around 80 pitches on Wednesday. Kershaw has allowed two runs in 15 career innings against New York and is 12-4 with a 2.28 ERA in 27 interleague starts.

About New York Yankees RH Michael Pineda (6-11, 5.07)

Pineda is winless in his last six starts and did not last long enough to qualify for a win in either of his last two outings. He struck out seven and allowed two runs in 4 2/3 innings against Tampa Bay on Friday but was pulled with runners at the corners and the game on the line.

Dodgers vs Yankees Prediction:

Kershaw is a big favorite at New York and normally he should be but this isn’t a normal game. He is on an 80 pitch count and that makes for some great value in this game. The Dodger relievers should be home derby time if they can get Kershaw out in the fifth inning. I will be taking several bets on the game before it starts and again in game with live betting. Before the game I have two bets. I am taking the Yankees money line with 50% and the over with 50%. During the game I will wait for Kershaw to get to 70 pitches and then I will hammer the Yankees. If you are not familiar with live betting then this is a quick scenario I will be looking for.

In the 4th inning the Dodgers are up 3-1 and Kershaw is at around 70 pitches. With live betting I will be able to get the Yankees at +1.5 and it should be at + ROI. In fact, if you take the Yankees on the money line when they are down like this against Kershaw you should be able to get +300 or more. Lots of value on the Yankees when Kershaw gets to 70 pitches.
