Yankees (-144) / Guardians (139) Game 5 Prediction
It all comes down to this! The Yankees were able to steal one on the road and bring this series back home for the final game. The Yankees will send Taillon to the mound while the Guardians will send out Civale. Taillon has appeared in this series once letting up 3 hits and 2 runs without recording an out. Civale has not pitched since 10/5. In 2 starts against the Yankees this year Civale pitched 9 innings allowing 12 hits 10 Earned runs. You would have to imagine both of these pitchers have a short leash today with the series on the line.
This is another tough handicap as these pitchers likely will not pitch long into this game. Currently the Yankees are sitting at -155 and the total for this game is 7.5 runs. I think the only way to attack this game is by taking the plus price with the Guardians. Civale likely only goes a few innings but I trust this bullpen way more than the Yankees bullpen. The Yankees will need Taillon to go at least 5 in this one and I think the Guardians can get a few off of him.
I will take the Guardians in this matchup due to them having more ways to win. Yankees need a good start from Taillon and need the long ball in order to score runs. While the Guardians have a great bullpen and can string together hits. Hoping for a good few innings from Civale and I’ll take Cleveland +135 ML
