Red Sox-Yankees Sunday Night Baseball
Red Sox-Yankees brings together two of the biggest rivals for Sunday Night Baseball. David Price did not exactly conquer the Bronx his last time out. Since then he has corrected course and has had a good stretch of momentum coming into this one. Tanaka is his opponent so both teams are bringing their “A” game starters for this one. Yankees started as a marginal home favorite but the tide has turned in the market. Where has it gone and who is the best bet for this one at 8PM on the 17th?
Red Sox-Yankees : Meaningless Strikeouts?
Price has been punching out players left and right in his last three starts. 30 strikeouts and allowing only three walks should get him out of a lot of jams if opponents were not hitting decently against him. With a recent WHIP of 1.07 and ERA just under three, the strikeouts have not exactly been coming at the key moments. It is his tendency of being a fly ball pitcher that is prone to giving up the long ball that gets him in trouble. Are the Yankees bats hot enough to take advantage of this tonight?
Even though Boston has won six straight coming into tonight, Masahiro Tanaka is downright unhittable with five days rest. 5-0 with an under two ERA when he has gotten more than four days rest this season. Yankee bats are not exactly crushing it as of late. A-Rod is being put back in the lineup after being benched for almost three weeks. An optimistic attempt at being a spark plug solution tonight.
ML has seen the brunt of the betting on the Red Sox driving the price on Boston to the -125 level. Current run total is at 8 right now. Both sides aces will benefit from the rest gotten from the All-Star break. HRWager’s Free Pick of the Night is the under 8 runs in ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. Good fortune and we will see you later today here at the HRW.
