New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox Betting Preview and Prediction

Where: Yankee Stadium, Bronx, New York

When: June 27, 7:05 PM ET

Betting on the New York Yankees

The Yankees snapped a four-game losing streak last Wednesday with their 5-3 win against the Toronto Blue Jays and will be delighted to face the reeling Red Sox in their home turf.

[sc:MLB240banner ]The Yankees have dominated the Red Sox so far this season owning a 5-2 record against their bitter rivals while outscoring them by a huge 30-16 margin.

Pitching for the Yankees is Vidal Nuno (1-4, 5.88 ERA) who is fighting for his spot in the Yankee starting rotation. Nuno had back-to-back poor performances, being blown out by the Athletics on June 15, allowing eight runs on eight hits in just three innings of work and then being blasted by the Orioles the following game allowing three homers in a 6-1 hammering at Yankee Stadium.

With Adam Warren poised to enter the starting rotation, Nuno who is making his 16th appearance for the Yankees this season will have to dig deep if they are to improve on their 3-1 home record this season against the Red Sox.

The Yankees are 3-7 in Nuno’s last ten starts and the total has gone over in three of the last five Yankee home games.

Betting on the Boston Red Sox

Brandon Workman

The Red Sox may have won their last game against the Mariners with a fine pitching performance from Clay Buchholz but the Red Sox are still far from the team that won the World Series last year.

They have lost five of their last seven games and are eight games back of the Blue Jays for the AL east lead with almost half of the season already done.

Pitching for the Red Sox in this crucial encounter with the Yankees is Brandon Workman (1-0, 2.88 ERA)  who is pitching for the first time since serving a six-game suspension for throwing near Evan Longoria’s head in the beanball feud that happened at Fenway Park on May 30.

Before the suspension though, Workman, who is set for his first start in Yankee Stadium, has a 3.21 ERA in his five starts since being recalled from Triple-A in late May. He has been one of the few bright spots in a disappointing season for the Red Sox who are struggling mightily on the offensive end.

They are ranked 25th in the league in runs scored (301) and are ranked 23rd in terms of batting average (.243) with captain David Ortiz hitting .256.

Another worrying fact for the Red Sox is that they have gone 1-4 in their last 5 games at New York with four of those games going under the totals.

Writer’s Prediction

The Yankees will pounce on Workman’s long layoff and help the game go over 9.0. Create a betting account now and get into all the baseball action today.
