Another Epic Yanks-Red Sox Series in Store at Fenway

A new chapter in baseball’s most storied rivalry will be written this weekend when the Boston Red Sox-New York Yankees series shifts to Fenway Park with the battle for the AL East on the line. Sportsbooks opened the Yanks as +120 road underdogs with a total of 9.

Shark Bites
  • The Yankees are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games on the road against the Red Sox.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Yankees’ last five games with Jordan Montgomery as the starting pitcher.
  • The Yankees are 4-15 SU in their last 19 games on the road after winning their most recent road game.

Jordan Montgomery and Drew Pomeranz are expected to get the start for the Yankees and BoSox, respectively. Montgomery will make his second straight start against Boston after holding the Red Sox to a run on two hits in 5.1 innings of work on Sunday. The hurler walked three and struck out four on 84 pitches.

Pomeranz has also fared well in this rivalry of late, as the left-hander gave up seven hits and three runs over 6.2 innings of a win on August 12. Pomeranz has allowed three earned runs or less in 10 of his last 11 outings.

The UNDER is trending when the Yankees travel to Beantown. In the last seven meetings between the squads in Boston, the UNDER is 6-1.
