Red Sox vs. Yankees Pick

A pair of 25-10 teams go at it at Yankee Stadium Thursday night where each will send a southpaw to the mound. The Yankees have been an absolute steamroller as of late winning 18 of their last 20 games. For whatever reason, the odds makers have lacked respect for the red hot Yanks as they've only been a two dollar favorite only 3 times during that span. Needless to say, -133 is a pretty nice price today.

Eduardo Rodriguez (5.29 ERA/1.26 WHIP) takes the hill for the BoSox. The lefty hasn't been sharp as of late, allowing 13 earned runs in his last 16.2 innings. Most recently, he allowed 3 dingers to a mediocre Texas Rangers team over 6 innings. He fanned 10 in that outing and has a great K rate so far this season but he's getting a bit too much of the plate. Needless to say, if you get too much of the plate vs. this NYY team, you'll be looking backwards quite a bit.


The Yankees send a rejuvenated (for now at least) C.C. Sabathia (1.39 ERA/0.86 WHIP) to the hill. C.C. has been like a fine wine this season, seemingly getting better with age (for now lol). Not the dominating pitcher he once was, he's learned to "pitch", and it's working. He's only allowed 23 hits over 32.1 innings this season and has displayed impeccable control with only 5 free passes. His home numbers are even a tad better than his overall numbers with a 1.33 ERA and 0.73 WHIP. He's absolutely rolling right now allowing only one earned run over his last 19 innings. He's hitting his spots as evidenced by the stats where he's given up only 10 hits during that span.

Yankees Hitters vs. Rodriguez

The team has hit .304 vs. Rodriguez in 69 plate appearances. Stanton has never faced him. Judge has gone 0-4 in limited at bats. Outside of Judge, no Yankee hitter has batted less than .292 vs. the lefty.

Red Sox Hitters vs. Sabathia

The active roster has only hit .213 in 178 plate appearances. This includes Bogaerts .143, Benintendi .182, Moreland .200, and HanRam .091. Betts has hit .333 over 26 PA's but no dingers.

My Red Sox/Yankees Pick: Boston isn't going to roll over and they may even give NY a game because this is always a tough rivalry. Heck, the Yanks only hold a slight 22-21 advantage over the past 3 years. With Sabathia pitching lights out, Rodriguez getting beat up lately and New York's sizzling recent performance, I'm betting on New York to get it done tonight.

How to Bet Baseball

Moneylines - The most common of baseball bets. Beautiful too, as they create a situation where you can win less than 50% of your bets and profit by betting underdogs!

Totals - The easiest wager to beat in all of sports betting. There's a reason why sportsbooks have lower limits on over/under bets!

Runlines - A wager that creates a point spread where a team is either -1.5 runs or +1.5 runs. Underdog run lines are a great bet for game in which you predict a slim margin. Favorite moneylines pay well and are great bets for potential blowouts.

Alternative Runlines - Turn a favorite into a +2.5 underdog! Turn an underdog into a -2.5 run favorite. You better know what you're doing before betting these lines or your bankroll will resemble the action of a craps table.

Parlays - This type of bet is the reason many bookies drive cadillacs. Big risk; big payouts!

Prop Bets - Similar to totals, these are easy to beat if you do your homework. Avoid the ones that look easy though as they're surely sucker bets.

Futures - A great bet for recreational bettors who only want to spend a few bucks and have something to root for all season. There's a big payout if you're right!

Season Wins - Bet on teams to go over or under the posted total. Fading public opinion can make you money with this type of wager. Especially with public teams.
