Sunday Night Baseball Betting Odds: New York Yankees at Los Angeles Dodgers

Probable starters: Domingo Germán (16-3, 4.15 ERA) vs. Clayton Kershaw (13-2, 2.71 ERA)

  • Yankees odds:  +158
  • Dodgers odds: -173
  • Over/Under:  8.5
  • First pitch: 7:05 p.m. ET on ESPN

On Sunday night, the Yankees (84-47) and Dodgers (86-45) will battle for a series win in their first matchup since 2016.

New York took game one on Friday 10-2, behind five home runs from their offense, before managing just one run on Saturday in a 2-1 loss; striking out twice with the bases loaded in the ninth inning.

Dodgers batters have struck out 27 times (against three walks) in the two games, as they were mostly kept quiet by James Paxton and CC Sabathia.

Can the Yankees stay hot against left-handed pitching, after roughing up Hyun-Jin Ryu on Friday?

And will the Dodgers continue to struggle against the Yankees most consistent pitcher, or will they finally bust out facing while facing a right-handed starter for the first time in this series?
