Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees Betting MLB Analysis and Picks (August 16, 2020)

August 12th, 2020 MLB Baseball, Sports Betting

Owing to the offseason trade of Mookie Betts were the Red Sox abandoned. Fans and gamblers took that move as a sign of surrender. Boston has fulfilled baseball betting expectations with a terrible start. The last place in the American League East quickly belonged to the Red Sox. Pitching has been horrible with inconsistent bats. Counter to that is the powerful Yankees. New York was the overwhelming choice to win the AL East. Starting pitching remains a concern but at the plate, the Yankees drop bombs. Aaron Judge has become the player he was always touted to be.
