The New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox prepare to face off in a Saturday night MLB matchup.
The Best Bets for Saturday, May 14th
The Yankees’ offense has led them to back-to-back victories to open the series. New York has now won five games in a row since splitting a double-header with the Rangers last Sunday. They are playing a quality brand of baseball and hold MLB‘s best record.
Chicago has dropped three of their past four games after previously owning a six-game winning streak. The White Sox pitching staff needs to find a way to contain this scorching hot New York lineup.
The first pitch is scheduled for 7:10 P.M. EST on Saturday, May 14th, at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, IL.

New York Yankees:
Is this the 1927 Yankees? It sure feels like it. Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and the rest of the lineup can’t seem to stop hitting bombs. New York won 15-7 in Game 1 on Thursday and 10-4 in Game 2 on Friday.
In a season where the offense is down around MLB, the Yankees bats are working just fine.
On Friday, the Yankees tallied four home runs. Judge Stanton, Josh Donaldson, and Joey Gallo all smashed round-trippers. New York totaled 14 hits as well in the game.
One difference from this Yankees team compared to the past couple of seasons is balance. They don’t only focus on hitting home runs. They have players who can get on base and put the ball in play.
DJ LeMahieu, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, and Gleyber Torres all posted two hits despite not leaving the yard. But their contributions kept the line moving and played a major role in the Yankees’ victory.
Gerrit Cole pitched well for New York on the mound. The star right-hander lasted 6.1 innings and struck out nine while surrendering three runs. Michael King followed Cole with 2.2 innings of one-run ball to close out the game.
New York can clinch a series win with a victory on Saturday.
Chicago White Sox:
The White Sox are having trouble figuring out the Yankees. But their lineup has hit the ball fairly well in the series.
Chicago totaled nine hits and four runs on Friday. That would be enough to earn a win in a lot of games. However, they are playing the Yankees.
Luis Robert and Gavin Sheets both posted two hits apiece. Sheets clubbed the only White Sox home run of the game as well.
Vince Velasquez was able to make it through five innings on Friday. But that was the only good thing that stemmed from his outing. Velasquez surrendered seven runs and walked three in the start.
At the very least, the five innings helped salvage the Chicago bullpen to an extent.
Dallas Keuchel (2-3, 6.86) will get the task of attempting to contain the Yankees on Saturday.

The Yankees took care of business in the first two games and are the favorites in this contest. They will send Jordan Montgomery (0-1, 2.90) to the mound on Saturday to oppose Keuchel.
New York is considered the road favorite, but the White Sox still have the capability of upsetting the odds, especially at their home ballpark.
So can Chicago upset those odds? Or will New York remain scorching hot and get the job done?
How To Bet On: New York Yankees at Chicago White Sox MLB Betting lines
There is no way I’m betting against the Yankees with Dallas Keuchel and his over-6 ERA on the mound for Chicago. To make matters worse, Keuchel is left-handed and will have to navigate through right-handed sluggers such as Judge, Stanton, Donaldson, and LeMahieu.
The key for Chicago to win this game is for the offense to have a breakout performance. If Keuchel can somewhat contain the Yankees lineup, then that would be vital for Chicago’s success as well.
But I am still placing my money on New York. And you should too.
