It took some more unfortunate events and seeing-eye ground balls to lose the White Sox-Astros under for a second straight day yesterday, and between that and the Yankees’ loss to the Giants, it was still a positive day thanks to the Braves-Padres parlay.
Here are the bets for Sunday, April 2.
Yankees -135 over Giants
I wrote yesterday that the Yankees being only -135 against the Giants was a bad line from the books and I stand by that. It took Michael King and Clay Holmes (the Yankees’ two best relievers for most of 2022) allowing four runs in 2 2/3 innings and a wild mess in the bottom of the ninth for the Yankees to lose. Oh, well.
That -135 is there again on Sunday with Jhony Brito making his major-league debut for the Yankees. Brito is a control specialist and won’t give the Giants many (if any) free passes, and they will have to earn any runs they score. Ross Stripling goes for the Giants and the Yankees are familiar with him from his time with the Blue Jays.
