Gerrit Cole will take the mound for the New York Yankees on Wednesday as he attempts to pad his Cy Young resume in the final stretch of the season.

Not only that, but the Yankees have a chance to win their third straight game against the Detroit Tigers. Is it enough to spark some momentum for a late-season push, or is it too late for any postseason hope for the Yankees?

Tigers vs. Yankees odds, run line, and total

Tigers vs. Yankees prediction and pick

I think most Yankees fans will agree with me when I say I have no interest in laying -225 odds on the Yankees to win. Should they beat the Tigers? Absolutely, but -225 odds is a steep price to pay on a team that's been as cold as New York has been since the All-Star Break.

So, instead we're going to trust Gerrit Cole to do what he can do and take the UNDER 7.5 at +100.

Cole has thrived on the road this season, sporting a 2.48 ERA in 12 road starts. Now, he gets to face a Tigers offense that's 21st in OPS since the All-Star Break.

Then, of course, I have to mention the Yankees offense and their 26th ranking in OPS over the same time frame. As long as Cole does what he can do, this total should stay under 7.5 runs, so that's what I'm going to bet on.

Odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
