Pick 10: Run Line, 1st 5 Innings, NY Yankees -0.5 (-175 DraftKings)

The New York Yankees head into their matchup with the Chicago White Sox today as favorites to win, and the -0.5 run line for the first 5 innings is an attractive option. Here's why the Yankees have a good chance of jumping out to an early lead:

Yankees' Hot Offense: New York boasts a potent offense, ranking near the top of the league in runs scored. Their hitters can get hot early and put pressure on opposing pitchers.

White Sox' Starting Pitcher Question Mark:  Brad Keller, a young starter who has primarily pitched in relief this season, gets the nod for Chicago. His lack of experience in starting roles could be exploited by the Yankees' aggressive hitters.

Yankees' Matchup Advantage: The Yankees have a solid record against right-handed pitchers like Keller. Their lineup is stacked with hitters who excel against righties.

Luis Gil's Early Dominance:  Rookie Luis Gil will take the mound for the Yankees. He's been impressive so far, boasting a strong strikeout rate and limiting early-inning runs.

White Sox Offense Reliant on Home Runs:  While the White Sox have power hitters, their offense can be inconsistent. If the Yankees can keep them off the homerun ball early, they can limit the damage.

Of course, baseball is unpredictable, and the White Sox have a scrappy lineup that can surprise. However, the Yankees' offensive firepower, pitching matchup advantage, and potential for an early lead make them the favorites to cover the -0.5 run line for the first 5 innings.
