Derek Jeter YankeesNew York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday Free MLB Pick: The Los Angeles Dodgers are continuing to roll, and when push comes to shove, they are probably going to run away with the NL West lead. They have an interesting matchup on Wednesday night against the New York Yankees though, and this is one of the trickier games to try to handicap on the MLB betting odds.

There were only five runs that hit the board on Tuesday night when these two teams faced off against each other, as both Andy Pettitte and Zach Greinke pitched very well. This pitching matchup though, looks to be even better. Hiroki Kuroda and Clayton Kershaw are both out of this world, and they are both pitching well at the moment. The truth of the matter though, is that this total might actually dip all the way to 5.5, which is one of the lowest totals we have ever seen. The bottom line is that it just isn’t right. The Dodgers are hitting .261 this season against right-handed pitchers, and though they haven’t plated more than four runs in five straight games, they are still really hitting the baseball well. New York has Alfonso Soriano in the fold, and it has Derek Jeter back from injury as well. This version of the Yankees lineup is a lot better than the one that is averaging 3.86 runs per game for the season. In the end, we think that this is just a number that is far too low. There is some good value there on the Yankees as well, but playing an ‘over’ in this game is far too tasty to miss out on. The ‘over’ will never be totally out of play in this game.
