This is an especially important game for the Red Sox (56-28, +10.06 betting units). They’re sending David Price to the mound. He started the season off slowly while dealing with carpal tunnel syndrome. Price (3.66 ERA) has led Boston to nine wins in 10 games since coming off the disabled list.
That leaves the Red Sox up 4.90 units at 11-5 with Price this year – but will his tender left arm hold up much longer?
The Yankees (53-27, +6.92 units) respond with their new ace, Luis Severino. The 24-year-old righty is pitching lights-out baseball. He has rocketed to the top of the money list at +11.35 betting units. Severino has a stingy 2.10 ERA and a team record of 15-2.
Against the Red Sox, Severino is 1-1 at minus-0.21 units, giving up seven earned runs in 11 innings while splitting the pair.
