3* BOSTON RED SOX +165 (list Lester)
LOVE the Sox in this spot today at plus big money and fully expecting Jon Lester to perform at his best in New York. Lester, when right, is a top level starter and he will be looking to prove something today. CC Sabathia has been great, but he doesnt strike fear in the Red Sox as they have always done well against him as evidenced by his 5-5 record over the last 3 years. This is do or die time for THIS Red Sox team and they are flat out angry. It is a crossroads game and I like the offense to come through today while Lester pitches his best game of the year!
Risking 3 units on this one and I understand it's a big risk but can come with a big reward!!

Kyle, good luck with your 3 star wager !! I'm on the other side, so at least one of us will win!
Thanks Prof.. I dont really know why Crawford is out of the lineup today as he has had great success against CC in his career, but I guess thats Bobby V!
In a delay now hopefully gets started
CC doesnt like the Sox!! As a Sox fan I was happy to see how Lester pitched in 5 of his 6 innings, need him to be big the rest of the year!!
Bottom line, this game was the season for Boston, and was just business as usual for the Yankees, motivation factor was huge here
I was thinking the same thing about Crawford, but apparently Bobby V was forced to sit Crawford by the training staff.

For anyone interested I am going back to the Red Sox well tonight...
2 unit play this time at +155 for me personally, but not as confident as I was last night...
Bottom line is that Boston needs this "series" more than New York and if they take tonight's game they can be sure their GM will be under pressure to make a move before Tuesday's deadline to improve the team...The players do not want the season to go down yet and should rally tonight... Doubrount has had success against this lineup and Kuroda struggled against Boston, Crawford back tonight and should have a chip on his shoulder after yesterday's events
Nice call Kyle!
Sweet!! I will almost always take Boston as such a heavy underdog
