Jack’s Free Pick Wednesday: New York Yankees -1.5 (-126)
The New York Yankees have turned the corner and are now 6-0 in their last six games overall. They just hung 20 runs on the Blue Jays yesterday and have scored at least six runs in four of those six victories.
Now the Yankees should make it seven in a row behind ace Gerrit Cole, who is 5-3 with a 3.20 ERA and 1.017 WHIP in 10 starts this season with 79 K’s in 59 innings. Cole is 3-1 with a 2.27 ERA and 1.010 WHIP in five home starts as well.
He’ll be opposed by Tanner Roark, who is 2-1 with a 5.60 ERA and 1.727 WHIP in eight starts for the Blue Jays this season. That includes 0-0 with a 6.75 ERA and 1.725 WHIP in his last three starts, allowing 10 earned runs and five homers in 13 2/3 innings.
The Yankees are an impressive 15-1 as a home favorite of -150 or more this season. They are winning these games by nearly four runs per game. Cole is 27-2 as a home favorite of -200 or more over the last three seasons. His teams are winning by 5.2 runs per game in this spot.

1* on Cleveland Indians -111
The Key: The Cleveland Indians are desperate to end their 7-game losing streak tonight. They lost in walk off fashion in Game 1 to the Cubs yesterday, but now they definitely have the edge on the rubber today.
Aaron Civale is 3-5 with a 3.88 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 9 starts this year, including 2-3 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in 5 road starts.
Jon Lester is 2-2 with a 5.05 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 9 starts this year, including 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 4 home starts.
The Indians are 35-10 in their last 45 games following a one-run loss.
The Cubs are 15-31 in their last 46 games as underdogs.
1* Free Sharp Play on Indians -119
The Indians (-119) are worth a look here as a small road favorite at Chicago in Wednesday’s MLB action. I just don’t trust Cubs’ starter Jon Lester. I know he was great in his last start at Milwaukee, but he still owns an ugly 5.05 ERA and 1.338 WHIP in 9 starts. He also been really bad at home. Lester has a 9.00 ERA and 1.632 WHIP in 4 home starts. Play the Indians -119!
