The New York Yankees clash with the LA Dodgers this weekend when the two franchises meet in a three-match mini-series in New York. Both franchises top their divisions, but the Yankees have the Orioles for the company and can’t afford to lose the series when MLB’s big spenders come to town. In our latest MLB betting picks, we tell you how the Yankees will get on. 

Yankees Vs. Dodgers Betting Picks 06 07 2024

The Yankees/Dodgers’ rivalry resumes on Friday night with the Yankee Stadium in New York hosting the three-match series. New York has run into a bit of form in recent weeks, and they’ve needed it with the Baltimore Orioles only a few wins behind at the top of AL East.

As for LA, they have a huge lead at the top of the NL West. But their form isn’t where it should be, with Dave Roberts’ side losing series against the Diamondbacks, the Reds, and the Pirates. They also dropped a game against the Rockies.

Could this be a good time for the Yankees to be taking on their arch-rivals?

Yankees on an eight-match winning run

The Yankees completed a second successive sweep on Thursday with an 8-5 win over the Twins. The 3-0 mini-series win followed a 3-0 road-trip sweep over the Giants and was their eighth successive win.

As a result, the Yankees have extended their lead at the top of the AL East to 4.5 wins over the Orioles. Overall this season, the Yankees now have a win rate of .703. At the Yankees Stadium, their record is 21-8 (0.724). 

Dodgers finally find some form

Things aren’t as straightforward for the Dodgers, who are 6-4 in their last ten and have an overall win rate of .609 in the NL West. 

Okay, when it comes to the division, they are 8.0 wins ahead of the Padres and 8.5 clear of the Diamondbacks, but their form isn’t anywhere near as good as the Yankees’ in recent weeks. 

Last night Mookie Betts led the way as the Dodgers picked up an 11-7 win over the Pirates. Eventually, the combination of Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani, Freddie Freeman, and Teoscar Hernández paid off.

The 11 runs is the most the Dodgers have scored since April 26, when they recorded a 12-2 win over the Blue Jays.

But as Betts stated after the match, “It’s just one game.”

Could this be the catalyst for a winning run for the Dodgers? We’ll have to wait and see.

Our Yankees vs. Dodgers Picks and Predictions

The Dodgers are the team to beat with their explosive hitters in their lineup. They finally clicked in the third and final match against the Pirates, but the problem is they have been hit-and-miss as a group in recent weeks,

They could take the momentum into the match in the Bronx. Or they could go back to struggling again. 

So with the Yankees in form, they are our betting pick to win the opening match of the mini-series at the Yankee Stadium tonight.
