The Los Angeles Dodgers (40-25) and New York Yankees (45-20) play the 2nd game of a 3-game set Saturday. First pitch from Yankee Stadium is slated for 7:35 p.m. ET (FOX). Let’s analyze FanDuel Sportsbook’s lines around the Dodgers vs. Yankeesodds and make our expert MLB picks and predictions for the best bets.

Season series: Dodgers lead 1-0

Los Angeles and New York engaged in a 9-inning bagel exchange in Friday’s opener. A pitchers’-duel 0-0 score made it to the 11th, and the Dodgers emerged victorious in trading 1 run for 2.

The Yankees had won 8 straight before losing Friday. RF Juan Soto, who is tied with teammate CF Aaron Judge for the MLB lead in WAR according to FanGraphs, missed Friday’s game with a forearm injury, and he’s questionable for Saturday night. Soto is hitting .318 with 17 home runs and 53 runs batted in; he owns a 4.1 WAR.

Dodgers at Yankees picks and predictions


Yankees 6, Dodgers 5


Stone has been getting by with generous rates around the margins and with an easy slate of opponents. The New York area will host another big sporting event Saturday, with Belmont Park hosting the Belmont Stakes. The since-Derby Day (May 4) Yankees own an .814 OPS (.833 at home).

Cortes has logged a 1.12 ERA at Yankee Stadium this season and a 2.34 mark over his last 165 1/3 IP at home.


Run line/Against the spread

Better value can be found on the ML; I would take New York minus the cushion at +165.



Cortes is an extreme fly-ball pitcher and on Saturday does draw a Dodgers club which is above average against fly-ball types. And an outward breeze is expected at Yankee Stadium.

Look for the bats to push back after Friday’s low-scoring affair. Voyages deeper into the bullpens also should lead to an overall more representative batting performance.

TAKE THE OVER 9 (-102).
