New York Yankees

The Yankees come into this evening’s matchup with a disappointing 6-6 record. Considering the considerable talent the Yankees wield, it’s safe to say that New York is failing to live up to their preseason hype. And although they’ve been able to deliver some enticing highlight reels, the Yanks are failing to lead the AL East. That honor currently belongs to their longtime rival, who’s been having a phenomenal start to the year. New York had a chance to deter some of Boston’s success but failed to do so in Game 1, conceding a 14-1 loss instead. Notwithstanding that beating, the Yankees bounced back defiantly in Game 2, 10-7. Interestingly enough, the evening’s MLB online betting odds are giving them a pretty good shot on the road. Sonny Gray gets the start this evening and he brings a 3.60 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 1-0 record to the table.

Players to Watch: Didi Gregorius (3 HR, 12 RBI, .359 BA), Aaron Judge (3 HR, 8 RBI, .357 BA), and Giancarlo Stanton (3 HR, 10 RBI, .235 BA).  

Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox have turned in a 9-2 record so far this season. Coming off two straight playoff appearances, in which the Red Sox failed to make it past the ALDS, Boston is hoping for a deeper push in this year’s postseason. And while early season success isn’t always an indicator of how well a team will perform down the stretch, Boston fans are still pretty pumped to see their team perform so well. Right now the Red Sox’ record gives them a 2-game lead over their nearest competition. With that in mind, the Red Sox will vie to build on that lead by beating up on New York this evening. Since the Red Sox are coming off a loss, the odds are giving both teams decent odds this evening. Rick Porcello will be starting this evening for the Red Sox. Porcello is 2-0 on the year with a 2.84 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Mookie Betts (2 HR, 7 RBI, .405 BA), Xander Bogaerts (2 HR, 9 RBI, .368 BA), and Hanley Ramirez (2 HR, 12 RBI, .357 BA).
