BETTING TRENDS

NY Yankees are 3-12 SU in their last 15 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of NY Yankees' last 5 games when playing on the road against Boston.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of Boston's last 7 games against NY Yankees.

Boston are 4-9 SU in their last 13 games at home.

Prediction

The Yankees have struggled lately as they have lost 8 of their last 10 games and 12 of their last 15 games on the road. Domingo German will start for the Yankees who has been good in his last 3 outings and has dominated the Red Sox in the last 3 meetings. The Red Sox will send Nathan Eovaldi to the mound who has been up and down this season and has struggled vs Yankees this season. Expect both offenses to respond on this game so the best way to go is the over.

PICK: Over 9.5 (-110)
