Yankees moneyline odds on the rise against the Nationals
Sat, Jul 25th 2:23pm EDT
It is not every day that the defending World Series MVP is an underdog at home in his first start of the next season, but that is the position Stephen Strasburg finds himself in. The line movement in favor of the Yankees is likely a result of 61% of the bets and 55% of the money going their way. Another reason bettors may be confident in the Yankees is how well starting pitcher James Paxton ended last season. Over his final 11 starts, he went 10-0 with a 2.51 ERA.
