The Boston Red Sox are visiting the New York Yankees to start a four-game series. We have a Prop Bet to look at with the start of the series! New York is sitting in first place in the AL East division, while the Red Sox have fallen back to last place in the division. The Yankees are holding off Tampa Bay and have extended their lead to 6.5 games, so they should clinch the division in the next few games.

For Thursday night’s game, the Yankees will start Jameson Taillon. The Yankees right-hander is 13-5 with a 4.04 ERA on the season. Boston will counter with Michael Wacha, who is 11-1 with a 2.61 ERA. Wacha has been the Red Sox best pitcher this season, but he will have to deal with a Yankees lineup that is playing well as of late. The Yankees lineup has scored 42 runs in the past 5 games, with Judge and Stanton playing well.

The first prop bet we will look at is who will score first in the game. Obviously, Boston is on the road, so they will have the advantage of batting first. However, the Yankees have more of a quick strike offense because of their power advantage. Taillon has been a good pitcher for New York, and he can be tough to string multiple hits against if you’re not hitting home runs. We will take the Yankees to score first because we think they’ll get a home run in the first couple of innings.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Red Sox are hitting .259 as a team

  • Red Sox have hit 139 home runs this season
  • Yankees have hit 236 home runs this season
  • New York is slugging .429 on the year

Our second bet of the Red Sox-Yankees game will be the Over/Under of 8 runs. This is a matchup between two offensive-sided teams, with the Red Sox being the better hitting team for batting average, but the Yankees have much more power in their lineup. However, on the pitching side, the Yankees have a full run ERA lower than the Red Sox, which makes the Over susceptible because of Boston pitching. With the game being played in hitter-friendly Yankee stadium, and the way the New York offense has been hitting, we will take over 8 runs for Thursday night’s game.
