The New York Yankees and the Cleveland Guardians have a double-header today. John Hyslop is here to share his best bet for the game and this time he's looking at the Yankees bats to get hot early.

Cleveland Guardians vs New York Yankees Prediction: Can Aaron Judge and The Yankees Get Hot Early?

It's Saturday and if you look at the schedule, you'll notice that there are games starting right at noon ET today. Obviously, since losses don't count on Saturdays, we'll want to start right at noon. It's simply the right thing to do. Everyone knows that. Now I normally do pitcher strikeout props but I was looking into one for the New York Yankees vs Cleveland Guardians game and I couldn't help but notice something in another market.

I mean it's obvious. It's so obvious that I legit jumped into my car, told my family I was getting everyone Dunkin Donuts and then drove to one in New Hampshire so I could get a bet down. That's just how you dominate a morning, people. The kids love it plus I get to gamble. Everybody wins.

Cleveland Guardians vs New York Yankees Pick

New York Yankees Team Total Over 2.5 *1st 5 Innings (-125) (Bet $125 to win $100)

*Odds available at DraftKings at time of publishing*

This one is at DraftKings but if we're being honest, I don't even know if the other books have a team total for the first five innings. I looked everywhere on FanDuel and it looks like we can only bet both teams' total for the first five. I'm not really into that since Gerrit Cole is going for the Yankees. Sure he could give up runs but I'm not betting on it. As for BetMGM, I didn't see any place for a first five team total which is a shame. It looks like a fun market.

Cleveland Guardians vs New York Yankees Prediction

Am I a Yankees fan? God no. Although for a brief moment when I was a kid I thought I was. They had Don Mattingly, Rickey Henderson and Dave Winfield plus my uncle knew Al Leiter so it felt like a good fit. But just like ecstasy and dyed hair in college, it was just a phase that simply wasn't sustainable. But even though I'm not a fan, I still recognize when a team can hit and this team can hit. The best part is that they hit bombs. Everyone likes bombs.

Over the last two weeks, only two teams in the entire MLB have hit more home runs than the New York Yankees (Pirates & Brewers). We're talking 22 dongs here people. The crazy part is, they did it in just 408 at-bats. The only team that's more impressive there is the Houston Astros who only needed 387 at-bats to smack 21 balls over the fence. Point is, that the Yankees can put a ball into the seats whenever they want.

Long balls are important when a team is facing a pitcher like Kirk McCarty. I'm pretty sure McCarty is a nice guy and all so I don't want to be mean but this kid looks like he's throwing batting practice out there. In seven innings of work so far in his career, the kid has given up five home runs. Fans in the outfield seats need to keep their heads on a swivel because they could get hit at any point.

This McCarty kid literally has more earned runs allowed than innings pitched. He's never had an outing where he didn't give up at least four earned runs. Again, not trying to pick on him but there's a chance we're watching someone in their last MLB appearance. We might as well give him a chance to make us some money.
