Yankees vs. Reds prediction and pick
Don't forget how great Luis Severino has been in his young career. In 19 starts last season, Severino sported a 3.18 ERA and a 1.000 WHIP with a record of 7-3.
Meanwhile, Hunter Greene hasn't got off to as hot of a start to his season as he would've liked with a 4.60 ERA, but an even more concerning WHIP of 1.581. Not only do the Yankees have the clear advantage when it comes to starting pitchers, but their bullpen has been the best in all of baseball.
New York's bullpen has an ERA of 2.94, whereas the Reds bullpen ERA is down at 3.86.
So, the Yankees have the starting pitching advantage and the bullpen advantage, but what about the offense? Well, that goes to the Yankees as well. In the month of May, they have the sixth best OPS in the Majors at .800, while the Reds rank 20th over that same time span at .701.
Give me the Yankees to get the job done in Cincinnati this morning.
