The under is 5-2-1 in Athletics last 8 Tuesday games. The under is 3-1-1 in Yankees last 5 home games. The Athletics are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in New York.
Frankie Montas has been great this season, and he’s pitching well now, allowing 26 hits and 9 earned runs in his last 25 innings. With that said, Montas doesn’t have many wins because the A’s are terrible. Sears doesn’t have a large enough sample size to really judge, but he’s got a legit lineup backing him up, and the Yanks don’t lose often. Give me the Yankees and the RL for max betting value.
