Red Sox vs. Yankees Series Betting Preview

The Boston Red Sox will try to shake off a slow start to the 2020 MLB season when they visit the defending AL East champion New York Yankees for a three-game set in the Bronx starting on Friday, July 31. The current betting odds have the Yankees as one of the favorites to win the World Series title, so it makes sense that they’re also the favorite when it comes to the Yankees vs. Red Sox betting odds.

Entering the series, the Red Sox vs. Yankees odds have New York pegged as the favorite, but this is a rivalry going back as long as we can remember, so both teams should be plenty up for the challenge.

Two Good Offenses, One Good Pitching Staff

Boston entered the season without its ace, Chris Sale, and they’re expecting fellow left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez to miss most, if not all of the regular season. The staff had a rough go of it through the first cycle of their rotation, as Nathan Eovaldi was the only starter to pitch more than five innings while keeping his team in the game. The Red Sox bullpen has delivered inconsistent results through one week, which will not help Boston’s betting odds in the series.

Offensively, the Red Sox are loaded. J.D. Martinez, Xander Boegarts, Rafael Devers, and company can match up well against any offense in baseball.

On paper, the Yankees offense entered the season as the best in MLB. With Aaron Judge struggling out of the gate, Giancarlo Stanton and Gleyber Torres have carried the offense. The Yankees bats will be a popular one for Red Sox vs. Yankees props.

Helping the Red Sox odds are the fact that they’ll avoid facing Yankees ace Gerritt Cole. Through one week, New York has only started three pitchers and will be without Masahiro Tanaka and Luis Severino. Tanaka is on the IL with a concussion and Severino is out for the year.

The Yankees bullpen will be expected to compensate for the lack of depth in the rotation. Zach Britton continues to close until Aroldis Chapman is cleared to return as he battles COVID-19. To this point, the back end of the Yankees bullpen has performed at a high level.

Despite the injuries to their starting rotation, the Yankees will likely be favored in every game when you shop Yankees vs. Red Sox odds.
