NEXT 10 GAME OUTLOOK: PARTLY SUNNY
The Yankees next 10 game forecast looks like 'partly sunny skies'. They have 2 likely wins where they are winning >60% of the simulations which translates to being at least a -150 favorite, 2 more games where they are favored by at least 53%, and just 2 games where they are a clear underdog. The rest of the games are toss ups.
The most likely scenario over the next 10 games is a record of 5-5 (26% chance). Their chances of winning 7 or more are 21.2%. At #1 in the league, they are ahead of the Astros by 2.5 points. With a +0.5 advantage in projected wins over their next 10 games they have a good chance of widening the gap.
Our Fatigue Index ranks teams based on travel miles, time zones crossed, days off since their last game and based on these metrics the Yankees are just the 27th most fatigued team heading into the next game. Over the next few weeks, the Yankees are playing 13 games, traveling 7554 miles crossing 6 time zones. They rank #25 on the Fatigue Index during this time period.
According to Sportsline the New York Yankees are -232 favorites but their simulated win percentage is very different and we see this as a pick with a lot of value. Get the pick for this game at Sportsline.com.
LONG TERM OUTLOOK: MIXED BAG
The Yankees are World Series contenders, but they have seen their chances go up and down this season. In our pre-season forecast they had a 15.2% chance of winning it all. On 3/29 they had a 19.1% chance before dropping to 5.1% on 6/15. From the start of the season to now their chances are up to 16.7%. Before the start of their 3 game winning streak they were at 14.3%. They are basically a lock to win the division at 90.2%. They are projected to finish #1 in the conference and have a 97% chance of making the playoffs. Based on the odds, they have a 38.5% chance of winning the AL (8/5) and a 22.2% chance of winning it all (7/2). In simulations they make the World Series 32.5% of the time.
