Sunday Baseball Betting Odds New York Yankees vs Boston Red Sox Free Pick

Sunday afternoon baseball and we will see the New York Yankees take on the Boston Red Sox in game 3 of their 3 game series from Fenway Park in Boston. Free Pick to follow. First pitch is scheduled for a 1:35 PM (Eastern) start time and the game will be televised locally.

Betting Odds

Yankees                  -102
Red Sox                  -108

Over/ Under: 9 U -115

The Yanks took game 1 of this series, but Boston bounced back with a 5-3 win last night. The Yanks have still won 6 of their last 9 games and they currently hold a 3 game lead over Baltimore for first place in the AL East. The Red Sox have now won 5 of their last 6 games and despite the fact that they are in last place in the AL East, they are only 5.5 games out of first. This may be a team to watch in the second half. 

New York ranks 2nd in scoring (4.61 rpg), 16th in hitting (.253) and 3rd in homers (114), while on the mound they are 20th in ERA (3.96) and 14th in WHIP (1.26). Boston ranks 14th in scoring (4.20 rpg), 11th in hitting (.256) and 13th in homers (84), while on the mound they are 28th in ERA (4.40) and 26th in WHIP (1.35). 

Getting the ball for the Yankees today will be Nathan Eovaldi, who is 8-2 with a 4.45 ERA overall this year, while on the road he has gone 4-2 with a 5.17 ERA in 9 starts. Nathan is 1-0 with a 3.75 ERA in 2 career starts vs the Red Sox, with both starts coming this year. 

Taking the hill for the Red Sox today will be Wade Miley, who is 8-7 with a 4.50 ERA in 17 starts this year, while at home he has gone 4-2 with a 4.03 ERA in 7 starts. Wade is 0-1 with a 3.79 ERA in 3 career starts vs the Yankees. 

Pick: This is a tough one, but I will go with the Under here. This will be a very warm day in Boston and we have two solid HR hitting teams, but we also note that neither pitcher has given up many longballs this year so far as both have allowed just 8 dingers each. The Sox can hit righties, but the Yanks have hit just .171 vs lefties over their last 10 games. Nathan Eovaldi has a 2.16 ERA in his las 5 starts and a 3.75 ERA in 2 starts vs the Yanks this year. Wade Miley has a solid 2.54 ERA in his last 5 starts at home and he has a 3.79 ERA in 3 career starts vs the Yanks. The first tow games of this series saw just 8 & 6 runs and I will split the difference and call for no more than 7 here.

MLB Betting Strategy: Don't Snub All-Star Pitching Snubs
Just because the All-Star Game doesn't want Clayton Kershaw doesn't mean sports bettors shouldn't. Vegas gambling expert Scott Spreitzer explains why your MLB picks should favor snubbed pitchers for this year's All-Star Game in Cincinnati. With added motivation and extended rest from the All-Star break, Scott thinks they are profitable pitchers to back.
