MLB Odds: Red Sox vs. Yankees

Hoping to avoid a collapse that keeps them out of the playoffs, the Red Sox will begin a series in New York on Friday night.

The Red Sox had a firm hold on a postseason berth a few weeks ago, but poor play and injuries to their pitching staff has them in a slump. The Yankees will be the winners of the AL East.
