Red Sox vs Yankees Betting Pick
Game time: 08/44/2020 at 7:05 PM EDT
Bet on the New York Yankees at -1.5
Despite Giancarlo Stanton being on the injury list for 10 days, the Yankees still have the advantage. This is because they have the best offense in the MLB and rank fifth in runs. Furthermore, the Yankees are going for their seventh consecutive win over the Red Sox and that is in their favor.
On the other hand, the Re Sox only rank 18 in the OPS in addition to only ranking 20 in runs. Our advice is to take the Yankees on the run line. The Yankees will win but bettors will get better value if they bet on the run line at 7-2.
