Yankees-Red Sox Battle on ESPN – Do Sox Have East Locked Up?

Does it get any better than the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry? There was some heavy wheeling and dealing before Tuesday’s non-waiver trade deadline. The New York Yankees (68-41, +0.91 betting units) hope they have what it takes to win the World Series.

They’ll visit their arch-rivals, the Boston Red Sox (78-34, +18.45 units) this Sunday at 8 PM ET on ESPN. The finale of a four-game set at Fenway Park.

Oddsmakers have the Red Sox as -115-moneyline favorites. The total is at 9Under -115.

The Boston Red Sox have all but extinguished their chief rival’s chances at an American League East title. The Red Sox pushed their lead over the second-place Yankees to 8 1/2 games.

They have outscoring them 23-9 in the first three contests of the series after posting a 4-1 victory on Saturday afternoon.

The Yankees beefed up their rotation ahead of the deadline. They added JA Happ and Lance Lynn,. It will be Masahiro Tanaka (3.84 ERA) pitching on Sunday opposite David Price (2.97 ERA) this Sunday.

Price hasn’t had much fortune against New York in the past. Price is 2-6 with an 8.43 ERA against the Yankees since arriving in Boston two years ago. That includes an 11-1 loss to the Bombers (–180 at home) on July 1.

Aside from that result and some other hiccups, Price has performed quite well for the Red Sox this year. He has led them to a 14-6 record and 6.90 units in profit.

Tanaka hasn’t been quite as fortunate, posting 0.65 units despite a team record of 11-5. He’s coming off three straight quality starts. Tanaka hasn’t allowed an earned run in over 16 innings of work.
