New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox Betting Prediction
The Yankees send RHP Frankie Montas to the hill against Boston’s 12th ranked scoring offense on Saturday night (4.48 RSPG), who’s been up-and-down all year considering he’s yielded a solid 3.59 ERA and 1.18 WHIP across 20 starts this season (107.2 IP), despite posting a lackluster record of 4-9 during that span.
On the flip side, the Red Sox send RHP Kutter Crawford to the mound against New York’s second-ranked scoring offense tonight (5.25 RSPG), who’s having a bumpy rookie campaign for Boston sitting 3-4 with a 4.30 ERA across 17 appearances this season (1.24 WHIP), which already includes a trio of solid outings against the Yankees (7 IP, 1 ER).
I’ll take the under here, as Crawford has tossed five innings or more and allowed one run or less in four of his last seven outings for Boston (3.23 ERA, 1.00 WHIP), which already includes an impressive performance against New York (5 IP, 1 ER); setting the stage for a relatively low-scoring battle against the Yankees and Montas, who’s 2-7 with a 3.35 ERA across his last 15 starts (1.26 WHIP), which includes a solid outing against the Red Sox (6 IP, 1 ER).
Score Prediction: Yankees 4, Red Sox 2
Best Bet: Under 9 (-110)
