Moneyline pick, best player prop for Nationals vs. Yankees on Friday

We go over some of the best betting options for Friday’s matchup between the Washington Nationals vs. New York Yankees.

DJ Lemahieu is the best hitter on the board

The Washington Nationals set out on the road after getting swept at home by the Braves over the past three days. However, the going doesn’t get any easier as the Nats will visit the New York Yankees, who have won 10 of their last 14 games, including five of six at Yankee Stadium. The Yanks just took two of three from the Astros.

Nationals vs. Yankees, 7:05 p.m. ET

Moneyline pick: Yankees (-186)

I am a bit concerned that the Yankees may be spent after an emotional series versus Houston, but I think their offense will have its way with left-hander Patrick Corbin tonight. Namely, Giancarlo Stanton and DJ LeMahieu. I do think this could be a high-scoring game with the inconsistent Jameson Taillon scheduled to pitch for the Yankees. This game has an over/under of 9.

Player Prop: Giancarlo Stanton with a home run and team win (+350)

There are no Juan Soto props available on DraftKings Sportsbook, which is too bad, because I would be all over any props with him since he’ll be able to DH this weekend in Yankee Stadium. With that said, I’ll put my money on Stanton, who is riding a 12-game hitting streak and has smashed six homers since its inception. If you don’t want to worry about the result of the game, the line on Stanton leaving the yard is listed at +260.
