Cleveland Guardians @ New York Yankees

Game 1 - Tuesday, October 11, 2022

There isn’t much that the Guardians can do wrong right now.

The AL Central side have been putting in work all season long and it has often gone unnoticed.

There is a bunch of talent that has flown under the radar, and a ton of great pitching performances that the league is about to see throughout October.

Cleveland fans know what their team is worth and how big of an accomplishment it is to get to this point, and the Guardians have been able to win baseball games in more ways than one.

They will have a tough one on their hands this week but are going to be more than up for the challenge against the New York Yankees.

Aaron Judge and his squad are looking to take the Yankees all the way in 2022 and there is going to be a rough path to get to the end goal.

Nevertheless, the Yankees believe they are still one of the premier contenders to win the World Series after a shaky end to their regular season.

Levels of consistency between the offense and pitching staff was never on par with one another throughout the whole post-all-star break. Aaron Judge makes life easier for the Yanks, however, and having him bat in the line-up will always be a huge plus no matter what situation.

Prediction – The Guardians to cause an upset and win game 1. Take their money line and the under on total runs!

Philadelphia Phillies @ Atlanta Braves

Wednesday, October 12, 2022

The Phillies and Braves are set to make another NL clash in the playoffs in 2022 and fans of both sides will be more than eager to get this series underway.

The Phillies have gained momentum at just the right time and will be looking to continue their improbable run at the Braves home turf.

Both these teams have been impressive on the pitching end of the count, but their offenses can become cold at random times.

The Braves have the more consistent bunch of the two, so look for them to score early and control the lead.

Prediction - Braves to win on the money line!
