Rangers vs Yankees Prediction
The Yankees pitching has still not lived up to the preseason hype but the Rangers has been better than expected. The Rangers are the better team right now and I would have them as a -140 favorite on my betting sheet. To get them at this price is a real value. Taking the Rangers who look like they finally have the players to go deep into October.
