It’s only fitting for one of the final weekends of the season to feature this historic rivalry. The Red Sox and Yankees have arguably the best rivalry in any sport, and their games always deliver. They’re usually fighting for the AL East lead at this point in the season, but unfortunately that isn’t the case this season. Regardless of records, they will always find a way to make these games interesting. With so many big names across both teams, there are plenty of ways to play this game and make it a profitable one. Along with this same game parlay, be sure to check out our MLB picks for all of today’s games.

Let’s take a closer look at each leg of our same game parlay.

Rafael Devers 2+ total bases (+140)

Last night’s 10-inning game proved that records truly are thrown out the window in this rivalry. Either team is capable of winning this game, despite the Yankees being such heavy favorites. Let’s not forget that the Red Sox have often been starter Gerrit Cole’s kryptonite. He collapsed against them in the AL wildcard game last season, costing the Yankees a playoff run. Similarly, 42-year-old Rich Hill is a respectable 4-2 against the Yankees. That’s why we are once again targeting some player props. This time we’re attacking some of the biggest names around.

We’re not targeting them just for that reason either. Rafael Devers deserves all of the attention he’s gotten. He’s been the most consistent piece of the Boston lineup this season and his numbers prove it. His 273 total bases are the 6th-most in the AL, and his 39 doubles are tied for the 3rd most in the AL. He also has one of the more unbelievable stats you’ll hear today — of his 7 hits against Cole, 6 of them have been home runs. With that type of total-base efficiency, expect a big night from Devers.

Aaron Judge 2+ total bases (-105)

That’s right, we’re going to the biggest name in baseball right now — Aaron Judge. There’s so much to say about the season he’s having that he needed to be separated from our game breakdown. The most obvious has been his quest for 61 home runs to tie the AL record. We intentionally didn’t target him last night as he was 0-for-14 against Sox starter Michael Wacha. That proved to be the right call. He doesn’t have much history against Hill, but 2-for-4 is certainly better. 

Keep in mind he doesn’t have to hit a home run for this prop, and he leads the league in total bases by a landslide. He has 376 and the next-closest AL batter doesn’t even have 300. Judge is virtually a lock to win the AL MVP and has a chance to win the triple crown. He has the RBI lead with 128 and is battling Boston’s Xander Bogaerts for the best batting average. Not to mention he also leads the league in slugging percentage, OPS and runs scored. Feel free to play his home run prop as a single play, but let’s go with the total base prop for this same game parlay.
