MLB Betting Picks – New York Yankees at Washington Nationals

MLB Betting Picks – New York Yankees at Washington Nationals

It’s time to play ball! Except the MLB game will have a different look than what we’re used to when the season finally opens on Thursday with the defending champion Washington Nationals hosting World Series favorite New York Yankees. Delayed four months by COVID, the 2020 season schedule will consist of 60 games. Rosters are expanded to 30 to start the season and the designated hitter rule will be used all season by National League clubs. There are other rules in place for the new season that will seriously impact how we wager on baseball. But the game is back and the opener features a pair of stud hurlers. The Yankees show off their prized free agent acquisition Gerrit Cole while three-time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer toes the bump for the home team.
