One of the biggest rivalries in all of sports in renewed in the series just after Rivalry Week. Each team has won one game in this series. Check the MLB odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Red Sox (34-23) could not get much going against CC Sabathia in the first game of the series with the Yankees. Boston actually had more hits than the Yankees, eight, but could not get more than a single run on the board. The run came in the seventh inning when Mike Napoli drove in Dustin Pedroia. In the second game of the series, the Red Sox blasted the Yankees, 11-1. Boston had 18 hits to the Yankees’ six and were led by Daniel Nava. Nava had four hits, four RBI’s and scored two runs.
The Yankees (31-24) are back at it after losing four games in a row to the Mets in the Rivalry Week series. Sabathia outdueled Jon Lester to improve his record to just 5-4 on the season while Lester dropped to 6-2. The Yankees were absolutely destroyed by the Sox and Phil Hughes gave up five runs in less than five innings.
The Red Sox are just 28-29 against the spread while the Yankees are now 30-25 ATS after losing a couple in a row.
The Red Sox really took it to the Yanks in the last game and this final game will decide the series. I am going to pick the Red Sox because of Clay Buchholz on the mound. Buchholz is 7-0 so take Boston at best online sportsbooks.
