Money Line Prediction
Martin Perez (7-6, 4.16 ERA) takes the mound for Boston as the Red Sox aim for the tenth regular season win against Domingo German (4-5, 4.40 ERA) and the divisional rival New York Yankees on Sunday. Boston is 30-20 at home this season, and has won 9 of the 12 meetings against the Yankees. In those contests, the Red Sox have outscored the Yankees by a total score of 56-39, and have the opportunity to secure the season series with a win today.
New York remains eight games behind the division leading Red Sox heading into the series finale. The Yankees have covered the run line in just 21 of the 47 road games, which is the fourth worst record in the American League. Ever since the crackdown against performance-enhancing substances being used by major league pitchers, the Yankees staff has been getting exposed. German has not earned a single victory since May 20, and holds a 5.90 ERA through his last 11 appearances.
Boston is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 games, and 6-1 SU in the last 7 games when playing at home against the NY Yankees. The Red Sox have won 23 of the 38 games as the home favorite, and 26 of the 39 matchups against divisional opponents. Boston is 3-0 when competing against German this season, so take the Red Sox to win and display more tremendous success against the storied rival during this shocking campaign.
Game Totals Prediction
When considering to predict the game total in this matchup, the finale has been the highest run scoring game in all three series between these teams. The total has stayed under in 6 of the last 9 contests for the Red Sox, and 4 out of the last 5 games played at Fenway Park. In 5 of Boston’s last 6 games against the NY Yankees, the outcome has stayed beneath the given total. 28 of the 47 divisional games for the Yankees also stayed under the total. Take the under as none of the last six battles between the Yankees-Red Sox surpassed the current total of 10.5.
