By Jay McNeil, Featured Handicapper
I am slumping, no two ways about it.
Need a winner for Tuesday.

No Guts, No Glory, I'm all In
Nothing really to say, this one needs to be a winner is all there is to it.
I know they will be keeping a close eye on Gerrit Cole for any possible foreign substances, but I am confident that Cole can dominate the Royals the way he has in the past as he leads the Yankees to another win.
New York is starting to get a little run brewing, as they swept Toronto in Buffalo and came back home to take 2 of 3 off of the Oakland A's to put themselves on a 7-4 run their last 11 games.
Cole is 3-1 in his 4 career starts against the Royals with a 2.36 ERA. He will face a Kansas City team that enters at just 3-12 their last 15 games.
Brady Singer will go for the Royals as he makes his first start at Yankee Stadium.
Singer is just 3-5 on the year with an ERA over 4 and since his team is 2-7 the last 9 series meetings with the Yankees I am feeling a New York win by 2 runs or more.
