The New York Yankees clinched a spot in the playoffs on Thursday night with a walk-off win against the Red Sox. So what could they have in store for Friday night? Our next bet is a Top Two Best Bets Today and the first bet is looking out east for the Boston Red Sox versus New York Yankees and the spread being 1.5 runs for New York.

The Yankees will have one of their best starters on the mound in Gerritt Cole. The Yankees right-hander is 12-7 with a 3.41 ERA on the season. His counterpart will be struggling left-hander Rich Hill. The Red Sox Hill is only 7-7 this season with a high 4.70 ERA. Hill is going to have problems trying to contain this Yankees lineup. Judge is trying to break a Yankees home-run record, Stanton and Donaldson are hitting the ball well, and this lineup is looking to close out the AL East.

As famous as this rivalry is, the Yankees have had the upper hand this season with a 10-6 lead and three games to go. Cole should be able to shut down the Red Sox lineup and give the Yankees a cushion with any runs they score. We will take the Yankees to win and cover the -1.5 run spread.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Mets are looking to hold onto NL East lead

  • New York has 1.5 game lead over Atlanta for the division
  • Mets have won four out of five games
  • Mets starter Chris Bassitt is 14-8 this season

The second bet of our MLB Top Two Best Bets Today, focuses on the other New York team, the Mets, who are across the country taking on the Oakland Athletics for a three-game series. New York is in a tight race for the NL East Division crown with the reigning World Series Champion Atlanta Braves. The Mets will have Chris Bassitt on the mound Friday night. Bassitt comes into the game with a 14-8 record and 3.32 ERA on the year. For the Athletics, Cole Irvin, with his 9-11 record and 3.79 ERA will try to contain the Mets lineup. New York needs every win they can get to hold off the Braves and facing arguably the worst team in baseball should only help. The Mets will be ready and focused, so we will take the Mets to win and cover the -1.5 run spread.
