MLB Odds: Red Sox, Yankees Renew Eternal Rivalry. There are baseball rivalries, and then there’s the Boston Red Sox versus the New York Yankees. These ancient American League foes will do battle once again this Sunday at Yankee Stadium, as they fight over first place in the AL East; naturally, this marquee match up will be on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball at 8 PM ET. You can use our Bovada Bonus Code before betting this game to increase your bankroll.
This is an especially important game for the Red Sox (54-27, plus-12.66 betting units). They’re sending David Price to the mound, and after starting the season off slowly while dealing with carpal tunnel syndrome, Price (3.66 ERA) has led Boston to nine wins in 10 games since coming off the disabled list. That leaves the Red Sox up 4.90 units at 11-5 with Price this year – but will his tender left arm hold up much longer?
The Yankees (52-26, plus-9.58 units) respond with their new ace, Luis Severino. The 24-year-old righty is pitching lights-out baseball, rocketing to the top of the money list at 11.35 betting units with a stingy 2.10 ERA and a team record of 15-2. But against the Red Sox, Severino is 1-1 at minus-0.21 units, giving up seven earned runs in 11 innings while splitting the pair. Bet on baseball at Bovada and get a free 50% bonus.
