Preview

The Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees will meet again to play a 3-game series at the Yankee Stadium. The Yankees lost their last series against the Reds and the Red Sox took the sweep vs Rays. The Yankees are 5-2 against the Red Sox so far this season.

New York Yankees

The Yankees get here with a 62-27 record and have lost 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 5.24 runs per game. They're batting for .243 AVG, 466 runs scored in 721 hits and 150 home runs, ranking #1 in offense in the league. Aaron Judge leads the team and is batting for .278 with 31 home runs and 66 RBI.

Defensively they are allowing 3.2 runs per game and rank #1 in the league. Nestor Cortes allowed 4 runs against the Red Sox and still leads the pitching staff with a 2.74 ERA, 95 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded with the Yanks.

Probable Pitcher:  Jordan Montgomery (3-2, 3.19 ERA)

Montgomery will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for New York. On Saturday against Boston, Montgomery pitched 5.2 innings, giving up two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four. He made no contribution to the choice. He has a 1-2 record with an ERA of 3.90 and 58 strikeouts in 13 appearances against the Red Sox in his career.

Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox get here with a 47-42 record and have lost 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.7 runs per game. They're batting for .259 AVG, 422 runs scored in 805 hits and 86 home runs, ranking #6 in offense in the league, behind the Atlanta Braves. Rafael Devers is leading the team with 20 home runs and 52 RBI, batting for .327 AVG while Trevor Story leads in RBI's with 58. 

Defensively they are allowing 4.23 runs per game and rank #15 in the league. Nick Pivetta leads the team with 8 wins recorded with a 4.08 ERA and 100 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher:  Nathan Eovaldi (4-2, 3.16 ERA)

Eovaldi will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Red Sox. ed Sox manager Alex Cora said Monday that Eovaldi (back) is in line to be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Friday's game against the Yankees in New York. The right-hander is coming off a three-inning rehab appearance at Triple-A Worcester on Sunday, with Eovaldi striking out four and allowing two earned runs on five hits and no walks in the 54-pitch outing. He has a 3-4 record with an ERA of 3.76 and 72 strikeouts in 16 appearances versus the Yankees in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Boston Red Sox are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

Boston Red Sox are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games when playing on the road against NY Yankees.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of NY Yankees' last 5 games against Boston.

NY Yankees are 16-4 SU in their last 20 games at home.

Prediction

Surprisingly the Yankees lost their last series against one of the worst teams in the league but they have dominated the Red Sox at home as they are 7-1 in the last 8 games. Jordan Montgomery will start for the Yanks and he had a good start against the Red Sox the last time allowing 2 runs in 5.2 innings. The Red Sox struggled offensively in their last series and were swept by the Rays averaging 3 runs per game in the series. Eovaldi is back with team after missing over a month and he could be limited on pitches for this game. Even if Eovaldi has a good start the Yankees will pound the Red Sox bullpen. Take the Yankees.

PICK: Yankees -1.5 (+120)
