New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox Betting Prediction

A pair of American League East rivals will square off Monday to start a three-game series. The Boston Red Sox are at home taking on the New York Yankees.

The fourth-place Boston Red Sox are 73-70 on the season. Boston is 37-35 when playing at home and has recently struggled, losing six out of their last ten games.

For the New York Yankees, they are 71-72 on the season. The Yankees are 32-36 on the road this season. New York is two games behind the Red Sox. The Boston Red Sox are favorites in this game. The Red Sox are listed at -130 over the Yankees on Monday.

Red Sox Looking to Shake Recent Struggles

The Boston Red Sox won on Sunday but have struggled lately, losing four in a row before that. In those four losses, the Red Sox allowed 35 runs. The Red Sox pitching has struggled all season long. Boston’s team earned run average is 4.63 on the season, while their starters have thrown just 38 quality starts all season. Finally, teams are hitting .261 against the Red Sox on the season.

Boston used a three-run home run from Triston Casas to help anchor the win on Sunday. Masataka Yoshida is the top hitter for the Red Sox this season. He is just under .300, while Rafael Devers leads with the power. Devers is just one home run away from 30 and needs seven runs batted away from 100 on the season.

Justin Turner is also having an impressive season, with a .285 batting average, 23 bombs, and 94 runs batted in. Boston has a team batting average of .264.

It’s Kutter Crawford on the hill for Boston. Crawford is 6-7 on the season, with a 4.36 earned run average. Crawford struggled in his last start, going just 3.2 innings, allowing three hits and five runs while walking four batters.

New York Bats Have been Missing

The New York Yankees bats have been missing this season. New York scored just seven runs in the three recent losses to the Tigers and Brewers. New York was hitless going into the 11th inning but came away with a win in 13 innings on Sunday. That win avoided a three-game sweep at home.

The Yankees, as a team, are hitting .227, which is 29th in all of Major League Baseball. The Yankees slugger Aaron Judge leads the team with 31 home runs, and he has 58 runs batted in this season. Gleybar Torres leads the team in runs batted in with 62.

It’s Clarke Schmidt on the mound for the Yankees. The 27-year-old is seeking his 10th win of the 2023 season. Schmidt is 9-8 with a 4.5 earned run average. Schmidt has struck out 139 batters in 140.2 innings. Schmidt was excellent in his last start, going 6.1 innings, allowing five hits and three runs in a win over the Tigers.

Yankees Win Series Opener

Look for Clarke Schmidt to pitch a solid outing on the road here. The Yankees would love to catch up with Boston and not finish in last place in the division. Sure, it’s a rivalry game, so both teams will be ready. But Schmidt takes care of the Red Sox bats in this game.

When we bet on this game, we will take the New York Yankees +110 over the Boston Red Sox on Monday.
