The Red Sox and Yankees are considered one of the best rivalries in sports and it gets a lot of attention from gamblers who bet on MLB odds.
MLB betting scheduling information tells us that this game is the finale of a three-game series between the two teams. It is also the last game of a nine-game homestand for the Red Sox. MLB betting trends tell us that before this series began the two teams had split their last 20 games. The Yankees had won six of the last ten games at Boston as MLB betting results indicate.
New York is one of the most popular teams for gamblers that bet on MLB to take each day. The Yankees have the big marquee name but oftentimes they are overvalued in MLB betting. They started this season up and down but gamblers who bet on MLB action know they were missing Alex Rodriguez. He could return early next month and his presence makes the Yankees a lot more dangerous in MLB betting. New York has also had some pitching issues and that has held them back a little bit in MLB betting.
The Red Sox are not far behind the Yankees in terms of marquee name overvalue with gamblers who bet on MLB lines. Boston is favored most of the time in MLB betting, especially when they are at home. The Red Sox are still considered one of the favorites to win the American League and they could be even more dangerous when John Smoltz gets into pitching shape.
MLB betting total trends tell us that before Friday the over had a slight 11-9 edge in the last 20 games between the two teams but the under was 6-4 in the last ten games at Boston. Last season, five of the nine games went under. When the games went over last season at Fenway they really went over the MLB betting total. In the four overs the totals were 27, 13, 13 and 11.
