Oakland Athletics vs New York Yankees Predictions 5/8/2023


After more than a month of games, the Yankees are presently dead bottom in the AL East.


This isn’t the team New York envisioned hitting the field in 2023 with Aaron Judge, Luis Severino, Giancarlo Stanton, Josh Donaldson, and Carlos Rodon injured, but there isn’t time for excuses when there is room to make up in the title race.


New York ranks 25th in terms of runs scored per game with 3.91 and hits .228 with a .675 OPS. The Bronx Bombers are eighth in base stealers with 28 and are eleventh with 40 home runs this year.


1B Among the team’s leaders in hits (35), batting average (.282), and on-base percentage (.362) are Anthony Rizzo, Aaron Judge, and DJ LeMahieu at third base.


With 10 quality starts, the Yankees’ pitching staff has a 3.54 ERA, which ranks fifth, and a 1.17 WHIP, which ranks fourth.


In the first game of the series, “Nasty” Nestor Cortes will start for New York. His most recent performance, a 4.2-inning defeat versus Texas (seven earned runs on five hits and four walks), was his worst of 2023.


Cortes’ first appearance of the year in which he failed to pitch for five or more innings. The six-year veteran pitched 33 innings across six outings while striking out 35 hitters and walking nine.


  • The total stayed UNDER in 4 of the NY Yankees’ last 6 matches.
  • The NY Yankees are 3-6 SU in their last 9 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of the NY Yankees’ last 6 matches against Oakland.

Oakland Athletics vs New York Yankees. The MLB pick for this game is the New York Yankees. On Sunday, the Yanks failed to complete the task after squandering a six-run lead in Tampa Bay.


The Rays won game three and the series in extra innings, proving that it wasn’t meant to be. Anticipate NY to show some flex versus Oakland tomorrow in the Bronx.


It’s excellent news for both Cortes and the Yankees that his next start was postponed to Monday due to strep sickness.


The 28-year-old struggled in his most recent start against Texas, giving up five hits, four walks, and seven earned runs in 4.2 innings.


Anticipate Cortes to be sharp at home on Monday after having had more time to recuperate and put his last outing behind him. Gerrit Cole had a six-run advantage on Sunday. New York will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
