Yankees vs. Royals Prediction

The Yanks are one of the strongest teams with a dominant pitching staff. Cortes has been spectacular this season, but Lugo has a better record. The offense will help the Bronx Bombers in Game 1 as pressure mounts after dropping their series to the Dodgers.

The Royals have key players like Bobby Whitt Jr. who could be a threat for Rodon and the Yankees bullpen. Despite the Royals being a tough competitor in the AL Central, the Yanks are stronger and are predicted to win this game.

Aaron Judge and Anthony Volpe have been hot at the plate. Volpe has been consistent in getting on base, while Judge has been on a hot-hitting streak. Rodon is expected to last for six innings before the bullpen gets in. The Yanks are holding a 46-21 record and are the only team that won the most number of games.

Prediction: New York Yankees - 1.5 (-135)
