Aaron Judge will get more chances to make history as he chases home run No. 62 when the Rangers host the the visiting New York Yankees in Game 1 of a day-night doubleheader on Tuesday. Judge is hitting first in the lineup as the DH in the afternoon contest.

The Yankees (98-61), first in the American League East, have won 11 of their past 14 games. The Rangers (66-93), fourth in the AL West, are 1-3 against New York so far this season. Tuesday's first pitch from Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, is set for 2:05 p.m. ET. 

New York is listed as a -115 favorite (risk $115 to win $100) on the money line in the latest Yankees vs. Rangers odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over/under for total runs scored is 7 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our MLB odds page).

Before making any Yankees vs. Rangers picks, you NEED to check out the MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every MLB game 10,000 times, and it entered the penultimate week of the regular season on a 14-3 run on top-rated money-line picks, returning almost $900 for $100 players. This is the same model that pegged the 2021 Atlanta Braves at 10-1 as one of three best bets to win it all last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows New York has been led by Judge, who has a team-best batting average at .311. He has 61 homers, 130 RBI and 131 runs scored. Judge had an 11-game hitting streak from early September until the middle of the month. He entered the series hitting .294 against Texas in 24 career games, including eight homers and 16 RBI as he looks for the one more home run that would surpass the team and American League record held by Roger Maris.      

The model also knows Nathaniel Lowe, who is batting .300 in 154 games played this season, has been a bright spot on offense for the Rangers. He has 27 homers, 76 RBI and 73 runs scored. He has hit safely in six of the past eight games. Coming into the series, Lowe had two doubles and two homers with four RBIs in 16 games against New York.

Now, the model has set its sights on Yankees vs. Rangers. We can tell you the model is leaning Over the total, and it also says one side of the money line has ALL the value. You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks.

So who wins Yankees vs. Rangers? And which side of the money line has ALL the value? Join SportsLine here to find out, all from the model that has crushed its top-rated MLB money-line picks!
