The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox will meet on Tuesday from the big ball park in the Bronx. All odds and trends for this game can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Yankees have a one-game lead with two games to play after their win yesterday coupled with a Baltimore loss. The Yankees scored 10 runs on 13 hits which was plenty for starter CC Sabathia who earned his 15th win of the season. The Yankees will look to inch closer to the postseason behind the right arm of David Phelps. He is worked out of the bullpen lately, but saw time as a starter for a lot of the season. In 94 innings of work Phelps is pitching to a 3.34 ERA.
The Red Sox are playing out the string of one of their worst seasons in a decade. They experience a fire sale in the middle of the season and their willful play has continued throughout the second half. They lost on Monday to the Yankees and will look to rebound tonight behind the left arm of Jon Lester. Although Lester has struggled overall this season he is still pitched 200 innings which is quite impressive. Over those 200 innings he is pitching to a 4.94 ERA.
The Yankees are closing in on another division crown and we think they will take care of business today against the rival Red Sox. Give us the Yankees as a moneyline favorite at home at the sports books.
