2022 MLB playoffs: Yankees vs. Guardians odds, line, ALDS Game 5 picks, predictions from proven computer model

After rain forced the game to be postponed on Monday, the New York Yankees and Cleveland Guardians will finally hold Game 5 of their ALDS matchup on Tuesday in a winner-take-all matchup in the 2022 MLB playoffs. After the postponement, the Guardians initially listed their expected starter as TBD but Terry Francona made it official that he’d be giving Aaron Civale the ball in Game 5 after indicating as much earlier in the week. However, it’s possible that Ace Shane Bieber is available for a multi-inning relief outing if necessary in this elimination game.

Meanwhile, the Yankees will turn to Nestor Cortes in Game 5 with the first pitch scheduled for 4:07 pm ET from Yankee Stadium. New York is a -170 favorite (bet $170 to win $100) on the money line while Cleveland is the +143 underdog in the latest Yankees vs. Guardian odds from Caesars Sportsbook.

Why you should back the Yankees

The Bronx Bombers have lived up to the name with seven home runs in the first four games despite the fact that Aaron Judge is just 2-for-16 (one home run) in the series. Harrison Bader has been an unlikely hero with three home runs in the series after hitting five in 292 regular-season at-bats and that’s helped keep the Yankees in the series with Judge and Giancarlo Stanton struggling.

Anthony Rizzo has also had a strong series with a .982 OPS and left-handed power could be critical with the Guardians naming Civale as the starter. Civale has given up seven home runs to left-handed hitters this season in 184 plate appearances and Rizzo is also 5-for-10 with two home runs and a double off Civale lifetime.

Why you should back the Guardians

Civale remains the starter for Cleveland, and he’s pitched well recently, giving up no more than two earned runs in his last four starts. But the extra day also opens up the opportunity to use Bieber in some capacity. He helped Cleveland pick up the win in Game 2 by striking out seven Yankees in a game he went 5.2 innings and gave up two earned runs. Bieber went 13-8 with a 2.88 ERA in the regular season.

Outfielders Oscar Gonzalez and Steven Kwan have joined third baseman Jose Ramirez as the big bats in the postseason thus far for Cleveland. Ramirez is batting .333 in the postseason as he’s logged nine hits, while Gonzalez and Kwan are tied for the second most hits on the team with seven.
