Picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: Yankees -165
Kikuchi has struggled with control early on this season and is walking too many batters. That could be an issue against a home run-hitting team in a home run-friendly park. New York should be able to get runners on base, and they lead the league in homers through the first month of the season.
Player prop pick: Luis Severino O5.5 strikeouts (-115)
Severino has been a solid strikeout pitcher during his MLB career and has done a good job racking up the K’s early on in 2022. The Blue Jays rank in the middle of the pack as a team in terms of strikeouts per game, but Severino has a good shot at reaching this total on Tuesday night.
