The American League is the best division in baseball, and it is not even close. As big of a rivalry as the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are, these teams and fanbases share a couple similarities; obnoxious fans and hatred for the other team. The New York Yankees own the biggest division lead in baseball and after Thursday night it just increased with Tampa Bay having an off night. The Bronx Bombers are 60-23 and are 14.5 games ahead of 2nd place as they try to run away with the division.

The Yankees put up a 5 spot in the top of the 3rd inning, before eventually holding on to 6-5 victory. Cole pitched a pretty good game with his only blemishes couple against Devers who now has just 7 hits against Cole, but 6 have been home runs.

The Red Sox now try to close the 15-game difference they find themselves in on Friday night. The Red Sox were able to escape having to face Aaron Judge, but there is a high probability that he will be back in the lineup on Friday. The Yankees lead the season series 3 games to 1. 

BetMGM Sportsbook is the perfect place to have a little action on this A.L. East rivalry. They are also featuring an insane welcome promotion. After signing up by using the code VIBONUS, the first wager is risk free up to $1,000. If you bet on the Red Sox or the Yankees and that bet settles as a loss, BetMGM will refund the wager amount up to $1,000. It’s basically a FREE bet.

The Yankees rotation has done something not very typical in today’s baseball world. The starting rotation has remained healthy. The season is just over the halfway mark, and they have only missed 4 games all season! The Yankees have played 83 games, 79 of them were started by either Gerrit Cole, Luis Severino, Jordan Montgomery, Jameson Taillon, and Nester Cortes.

Nester Cortes will get start tomorrow’s game. Cortes is 7-3 with a 2.44 ERA. He has taken a slight step back in his last few starts allowing 3 or more in 3 of his last 5 starts. The previous 10 games Cortes allowed 3 just one time, while he allowed just 2 runs in the other nine contests. While his regression has come, his last start he went 6 strong allowing 1 earned run.  

The Red Sox will toss out Connor Seabold, a top prospect in the Red Sox organization. His first start was shaky as he only went 4.2 innings allowing all 7 of the Blue Jays runs. His second start went a lot better allowing just 1 earned run spanning 4 innings. Much like the Blue Jays who rocked Seabold, this Yankees lineup can do a lot of damage.

BetMGM Sportsbook will have all available lines, whether it’s the money line, the spread, the total, first 5 innings, or any live action you would like. Game 2 is the best time to head on over to the BetMGM Sportsbook and redeem your welcome promotion. Remember when you sign up using the VIBONUS code your first bet is risk free up to $1,000.

Until next time, enjoy the ride.
