Red Sox Continue to Go UNDER Totals With Ease

After looking up to the Boston Red Sox in the standings all year long, the New York Yankees are running out of time to compete in the American League East division. The Yanks will try to make up some ground when the longtime rivals collide on the diamond on Sunday. Sportsbooks opened the BoSox as -109 slight road favorites with a total of seven.

Shark Bites
  • The Yankees are 8-2 in Severino's last 10 starts.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the Yankees last five games.
  • The UNDER is 5-0 in the last five meetings between the Red Sox and Yankees.

Chris Sale and Luis Severino are expected to get the nod for the Red Sox and Yankees, respectively. Sale (15-6, 2.77 ERA) ended a three-start winless streak by hammering Toronto on Tuesday, as the ace struck out 11 Blue Jays batters while scattering three hits over seven scoreless innings. The Cy Young favorite leads with majors with 264 strikeouts and is 10 away from matching his career high.

Severino (11-6, 3.14) is no slouch either in that department, as the hurler is fourth in the AL with 192 K’s. Severino’s worst start of the year came at home against Boston on August 12 when he was ripped for 10 runs over 4 1/3 innings of work.

The Red Sox have had a habit of playing to the UNDER lately. In Boston’s last five, the UNDER is a perfect 5-0.
