Tanaka's ERA Should Rightfully Worry Yankees Bettors

The Boston Red Sox have been doing everything they can to overtake the top spot in the American League East, but the New York Yankees continue to stand in their way. The two bitter rivals will collide on the diamond on Tuesday, where sportsbooks opened the Bronx Bombers as slight -110 faves with a total of 9.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Red Sox' last four games against the Yankees.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Red Sox' last 11 games.
  • The Yankees are 6-0 SU in their last six games after a loss.

Drew Pomeranz and Masahiro Tanaka will get the start for the Red Sox and Yankees, respectively. Pomeranz (5-3, 4.24 ERA) pitched a season-high seven innings against the Chicago White Sox last Wednesday and struck out eight while allowing only one run in the win. The 28-year-old struck out a season-high 11 while walking one in his previous start.

Tanaka (5-5, 6.34) has taken a loss in each of his last four starts and surrendered at least six earned runs in three of those outings. His best start of the season came against the BoSox on April 27, however, when he allowed just three hits and did not issue a walk while cruising to a shutout.

Yankee Stadium hasn't been kind to Boston of late. In the Red Sox' last five trips to the Big Apple, they're 0-5 SU.
