The New York Yankees are 3-2 on their current 10-game road trip. On Wednesday, they will look to bounce back from Tuesday's 6-4 loss to Oakland, when they were plus-107 underdogs.
MLB handicappers will find that the Yankees are 44-19 in June over the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 35-24-4 in that situation.

Athletics starting pitcher Dan Straily is 1-2 with a 5.53 ERA in eight career home starts—allowing 10 home runs in 40.2 combined innings.
