Pick: Red Sox ML (+100)
Sunday afternoon, takes us to one of the most historic ballparks in all of Major League Baseball for one of the most historic rivalries in all of Major League Baseball. Yankee Stadium in the Bronx plays host to the finale of a three-game series between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees here on Sunday afternoon. Both of these teams are fighting for a spot in the postseason at the moment and both of them will be looking for a massive momentum boosting victory here on Sunday afternoon as well.
The Boston Red Sox come into this game on Sunday afternoon, looking to complete a sweep over their arch rivals in the finale of this three-game series on the road. Boston is having a successful season, but they have been flying under the radar because of the success of the three teams ahead of them in the American League East division. The Tampa Bay Rays, Baltimore Orioles, and Toronto Blue Jays have arguably been three of the best teams in the entire American League this season, which leaves Boston as the odd one out in the division at the moment. They will be looking to grab some more momentum with a victory here in the finale of this series as their lineup has jumped all over New York Yankees pitching throughout the first 18 innings of the weekend.
Boston comes into the finale of this series with a record of 65-58 through their first 123 games of the 2023 Major League Baseball regular season. They are currently in fourth place of the American League East division as they find themselves ten and a half games out of first place behind the Baltimore Orioles in the division. However, at the moment Boston is only three and a half games out of the third wildcard spot in the American League. They are currently on a two game winning streak, and they have picked up seven victories in their last 10 games of the season. They will be looking to make it three consecutive victories in the finale of this series with another win against the Yankees here on Sunday afternoon.

It has been a rough season for the New York Yankees this year, and if they don’t turn things around very quickly, they will likely miss out on the postseason and officially go a decade and a half without lifting a World Series trophy. That is something that is almost unheard of for a franchise like the New York Yankees as they have the most World Series in the history of Major League Baseball with 27. They have looked completely outmatched in the opening two games of this series against the Boston Red Sox as Boston has put up a combined total of 16 runs between Friday and Saturday evening.
The New York Yankees are currently in last place in the American League East division and at this rate it doesn’t seem as if they were ever going to get out of the basement before the end of the regular season. They will be looking to salvage some momentum and their pride, with a victory in the finale of the series against the Boston Red Sox after being blown out in the opening two games of this series by multiple runs on both nights. New York will certainly have to be more productive at the plate after they failed to generate a ton of runs over the first two games of this series. If that is something that doesn’t improve then they will find themselves on the losing end again here on Sunday afternoon.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Boston is 39-25 after a win
- Boston is 20-18 as a road underdog
- New York is 15-23 in the AL East
While I expect the finale of this series to be a lot closer than the previous two games, I still expect the Boston Red Sox to finish off the sweep of the New York Yankees here on Sunday afternoon in the Bronx. I think Boston’s lineup has been red hot and I do not see them cooling off here in this one on Sunday afternoon.
