MLB Odds: Red Sox, Yankees Rivalry Renewed in 2014

They’re the two greatest rivals in North American professional sports, but that’s not the only reason why the early season set between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees is a must-watch event for the MLB betting community. The two clubs also hold the key to the American League East Division.

Having won the championship just last fall, the Red Sox are an obvious popular betting option, but their 14/1 odds of winning the World Series sit tied with their pinstriped peers. The Yanks may have missed out on the postseason in 2013, but made several moves to restore their playoff aspirations heading forward.

Pay special attention to trusted Red Sox vets like Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz in this one, but also to newcomer Xander Bogaerts who leapt out of the gates batting .290 in his first full season in the Bigs.

New York fans, on the other hand, have a plethora of fresh faces leading the charge. Faces like blockbuster free agent acquisition Jacoby Ellsbury and recently promoted sensation Yangervis Solarte. In his first eight games with the squad, Solarte batted .429 with an OPS of 1.127.

Don’t rule out some solid pitching, however, as both rotations will turn over throughout the course of the matchup, leaving the perfect blend of ace-caliber talent on the mound and two lineups’ worth of hitters hungry to beat their MLB odds.
