Dodgers vs. Yankees Key Players to Watch

Dodgers

Yoshinobu Yamamoto: The Dodgers' pitching staff, including their starter for Game 1 Yoshinobu Yamamoto is going to have their hands full this weekend. The Yankees lead the Majors in OPS this season at .776 while also rocking a stunning .825 OPS over the last 30 days. Strong pitching is going to be a must if they want to win Game 1 tonight.

Yankees

Aaron Judge: Aaron Judge has been on an unbelievable roll of late. Over the last 30 days, he has a batting average of .387, an OPS of 1.491, and he's hit 14 dingers. He's the key to every game for the Yankees moving forward.

Dodgers vs. Yankees Prediction and Pick

Juan Soto is going through an injury scare right now, but that shouldn't scare us bettors away from taking the Yankees as home underdogs.

The Yankees have statistically been the best team in baseball this season so I'm surprised they're this big of underdogs to the Dodgers at home on Friday night. Over the last 30 days, the Yankees have an eye-popping OPS of .825 while the Dodgers have an OPS of just .708, which ranks 14th in the Majors. I'll take New York at home.

Cody Peteet may be still of an unknown entity for the Yankees, but he's looked solid in his first two starts, giving up just three earned runs in 11.0 innings. If he can keep that going tonight, New York is going to be a great underdog bet.

Pick: Yankees +120
