0 of 3

    The New York Yankees are 16-7 in their last 23 games as home favorites of minus-110 to minus-150, which is important to consider when making your MLB picks on Wednesday as they continue a three-game series against the Texas Rangers at Yankee Stadium.

    Courtesy of SBR Forum, the Yankees are minus-128 favorites in the pro baseball odds, while the total sits at nine in the betting market.

    Let's take a closer look at this American League matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction along the way. 

Texas Rangers

    The Texas Rangers had their five-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday night, as they suffered a 4-3 loss to the New York Yankees as minus-119 road favorites.

    Rangers starting pitcher Justin Grimm is 2-3 with a 7.01 ERA in seven road starts this season.

New York Yankees

    The New York Yankees are 12-2 in their last 14 home games against the Texas Rangers, but they've dropped seven of Andy Pettitte's last eight starts versus American League West opponents.

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Yankees are 49-26 in June, with the UNDER going 42-28-5 in that situation. 

Prediction

    I'm going to recommend that readers back the New York Yankees as one of their MLB picks on Wednesday, as they've gone 99-47 in Andy Pettitte's last 146 starts as a favorite.
