Giants vs. Yankees prediction and odds for Saturday, April 1 (New York will continue perfect start)
After a day off on Friday, the San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees will continue their series in the Bronx. The Yankees won the first game on Opening Day by a final score of 5-0.
Alex Cobb will take the mound for the Giants and he'll face-off against Clarke Schmidt of the Yankees.
Can New York improve to 2-0, or will the Giants get its revenge for Thursday's loss?
Let's dive into the odds and then I'll break down my best bet.
Giants vs. Yankees odds, spread, and total
Giants vs. Yankees prediction and pick
Gerrit Cole had one of the best Opening Days amongst all starting pitchers on Thursday, pitching six scoreless innings while striking out 11. As impressive as that performance was, I think it may be just as much of a sign of the Giants' offensive woes than Cole's strong stuff.
San Francisco recorded just four hits all game and failed to score a single run.
On Saturday, the Giants will face Clarke Schmidt who had a strong 2023 campaign. He recorded a 3.12 ERA across 57.2 innings, but only got three starts. This is a great matchup for his first start this season, and I think he'll get started off one the right foot.
Even if you give Alex Cobb the pitching advantage, the Yankees' bats compared to those of the Giants are enough for me to back San Francisco in this showdown.
