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.

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox renew their iconic rivalry with a four-game series in the Bronx. The Yankees should be favored throughout the series with the betting odds showing New York to win it all at many sportsbooks.

The Red Sox enter the series relatively healthy. Keep an eye on the status of Boston third baseman Rafael Devers (ankle). The Yankees are once again battling injuries. Aaron Judge’s status is questionable as he continues to miss time with “lower body tightness” and Giancarlo Stanton is on the IL with a hamstring injury.

Taking a look at the Red Sox vs. Yankees odds entering the series, the Yankees are favored. This lines up with a bigger picture view of how these two teams are being viewed by many bettors this season. The Red Sox odds are deflated and rightly so, as the team has flirted with the cellar in the AL East in recent days.

Yankees Look Much Better Than the Red Sox

Boston’s rotation hasn’t recovered from the losses of Chris Sale (Tommy John surgery) and Edwin Rodriguez, who opted out of the season due to COVID-19 concerns. Among all Major League teams, the Red Sox rotation is solidly last in xFIP and SIERA. The bullpen is ranked in the middle of most major advanced statistical categories.

The Red Sox offense has lacked the power that we’ve seen in past years. They’ve been a middling offense, with league-average home runs per game numbers. The aforementioned injury to Devers further complicates the Red Sox offense.

The Yankees rotation is anchored by Gerritt Cole, who is likely to start in the four-game set. Masahiro Tanaka and James Paxton have had a large part in the rest of the starting rotation sitting in the middle of most statistical categories. New York’s bullpen is one of the best in baseball despite not having Aroldis Chapman on the active roster. Keep an eye on Chapman’s status as it’s possible that he pitches in this series.

The Yankees offense has helped it climb to a fast start to the shortened season, but Stanton is now on the IL and Judge’s status is in question. Be sure to keep an eye on Aaron Judge’s status as it will likely affect Red Sox vs. Yankees odds.
