This is one of those matchups where I just feel like Junis is going to turn it around. I can never take Sabathia at -164 and don't let this yankee reputation fool you. This is not the real Yankee lineup because they are dealing with injuries. The projected line up has Clint Frazier, Mike Tauchman, Giovanny Urshela, and Kyle Higashioka. Even the heart of their lineup looks semi weak with Voit and Torress batting 3 and 4. This is a coin flip to me so I always side with the plus money50%

Junis hasn't been good of late and Sabathia is the better hurler in this matchup, but given how volatile the Yankees are right now, it's hard to justify these prices. I don't see KC's offense getting more than 2 runs against Sabathia today, I predict a 5-2 Yankees win.

CBS: Sabathia Shines Again, Yankees Bounce Back To Beat Royals 6-2
NEW YORK (AP) -- Two starts into his final season, CC Sabathia has yet to allow an earned run.
Even at 38 years old, he's still playing stopper for the Yankees as he closes in on some impressive milestones.
Sabathia earned his first win of the year and Brett Gardner hit a two-run homer as New York beat the Kansas City Royals 6-2 on Friday night.
"He's the same guy every day, has been for the last 10 or 11 years," Gardner said. "He's a great teammate, he's a great competitor and I think he sets a great example for all the young guys that we have in the room.

The Bronx blues continued for Royals starting pitcher Jakob Junis.
The Royals couldn't keep the momentum going from a stellar all-around outing on Thursday night, as they fell 6-2 to the Yankees in front of an announced 39, 668 at Yankee Stadium on Friday night.
The loss stopped the Royals from putting together their second three-game win streak of the season, and it evened up the four-game series at one game apiece heading into Saturday afternoon's tilt.
