Breaking: Yankees acquire LHP James Paxton in exchange for LHP Justus Sheffield, RHP Erik Swanson, and OF Dom Thompson-Williams

The Yankees have made their first splash of the offseason by acquiring the Big Maple, James Paxton, from the Seattle Mariners. Fresh off his second-consecutive season at the top of the Mariner’s rotation, Paxton did not come cheap as the Yankees traded away their top prospect, Justus Sheffield, along with breakout prospects Erik Swanson and Dominic Thompson-Williams.

BBB Betting Tips: Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels (4/29)

10-2-1 over the last 13 games, and just like the Yankee’s themselves, BBBetting appears unstoppable. Not even a West Coast road trip seems to be enough to slow us down, and tonight on Baseball’s biggest stage, I am excited to keep this rolling.

New York Yankees @ Los Angeles Angels (04/29)

CC Sabathia (1-0, 1.86 ERA) vs. Tyler Skaggs (3-1, 2.96 ERA)

The Yankees are good at baseball. I think after a turbulent start, it is officially safe to say it.  Ultimately this means the Yankees are favored in almost every start, and if they aren’t initially favored, eventually the line will shift. Today was a prime example of it, the Yankees opened as underdogs and had the spread of +1.5 (-190) looking extremely enticing. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one that thought so as the spread has entirely shifted, and now the Yankees are favored and have a tough spread of -1.5 (+101). 

I think a big night deserves something this blog hasn’t had the pleasure of attempting yet, and that is the first half spread. Most bookmakers offer first five innings, last four innings, and of course the complete game spreads. Looking around I found a favorable first five spread of +0.5 (-121). For a team that the public is loving and with CC Sabathia, who has been a rock, on the mound, it seems like the right decision.

Final Call: +0.5 in first 5 spread (-121)
