With the season winding down, it’s only fitting that the biggest rivalry is featured. It’s arguably the biggest rivalry of any sport, and these teams never fail to deliver. Despite them not battling for the AL East lead at this point, nothing is ever a given when these teams meet. It’s surprising that schedule-makers didn’t make it the last series of the year, but at least it’s still a long 4-game set. This is the opener for a weekend that may see history made with Aaron Judge chasing the AL home run record. Let’s break it down and make it a profitable one.

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

J.D. Martinez 2+ total bases (+135)

Both the Red Sox and Yankees are coming off of series against NL Central opponents. They were just 2-game sets, and they were each able to win those games. With where these teams are positioned in the AL East, it may seem like the Yankees should be the side to back. However, records are thrown out the window when these rivals meet. New York does lead the season series 9-6, but the Sox have still proven they can take them down. On top of that, the Yankees have not been nearly as dominant in the second half of the season. Boston has also not had Michael Wacha for much of the year, who pitched 7.0 scoreless innings against the Yankees last month. With all of that in mind, that is why we are going to focus on other props instead.

There are plenty of superstars in this matchup across both teams. However, we’re going to start out with a guy who doesn’t get quite as much publicity; it’s generally Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts that make the headlines for the Sox. They’re certainly great, but they don’t even lead their own team in terms of doubles. That would be J.D. Martinez. His 40 are the 3rd-most in the AL. He’s also hitting .308 against Yankees starter Jameson Taillon, who will be on the mound for this game. Martinez has 4 doubles and a home run against New York overall this season, so expect a big night from the designated hitter.

Anthony Rizzo 2+ total bases (+115)

There’s no Aaron Judge love on the Yankees side either. While his chase for 61 has been incredible, he has not had success against Wacha. He’s an awful 0-for-14 against him. He may very well snap that slump and tie the record tonight, but we’re going to get much better value with Anthony Rizzo. Despite the Yankees putting up 14 runs last night, he was one of the only ones not to contribute. However, do not let that cause hesitation in this play. Rizzo has a .420 average with 2 doubles and 3 home runs against Wacha. That also includes a .640 slugging percentage. He’s also one of the AL leaders in home runs this season. Everyone pales in comparison to Judge’s 60, but Rizzo’s 31 is the 5th-most in the AL. With the great matchup against Wacha, he should be able to bounce back tonight.
