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. Cleveland Indians (5/4)

A little early in the month I know, but this blog is all about the numbers. In the month of May BBBetting has never lost. The Yankees return home from their successful road trip, and with a beautiful night in the Bronx ahead of us, I foresee this trend continuing.

Cleveland Indians @ New York Yankees (05/04)

Josh Tomlin (0-4, 9.16 ERA) vs. CC Sabathia (2-0, 1.71 ERA)

Josh Tomlin has absolutely struggled this season. He has only had two outings where he has given up less than five runs, one of which he only lasted an inning. He has given up 10 home runs in five games, giving up four homers twice. Tonight he faces the Yankees who have 44 homers this season, and have their rock CC Sabathia on the mound. 

This should be an easy pick with all that said. The issue comes with where the public money is sitting, and the current odds. 74% of the money is being placed on the Indians, while only 44% of the public is betting on them. With the Yankees being so heavily favored (-200) this is a messy combination. I believe in CC, and the bookmakers clearly do too. Double up on the Yankees ML, and enjoy some fireworks. 

Final Call: Yankees ML 2U (-200)
