MLB Expert Picks For New York At Boston

Posted by Henry Watkins on Monday,April 24, 2017 10:45, EDT in

You hate to make predictions this early in the MLB season, but I have to say that the AL East looks as though it’s going to be a lot of fun to watch this season. The Boston Red Sox came into the season as the prohibitive division favorites, but the Baltimore Orioles, who are currently on top, and the New York Yankees are proving that they may well be worthy foes this season. Particularly pleasing in the early part of the season has been the Yankees, as they are getting the job done in a big way on both sides of the ball. They have been hammering the ball all over the park this season, and have also been getting some great work from their pitching staff. This is a younger group of players than we have been used to seeing with the Yankees in recent years, but that is proving to be a good thing. They will head on the road to face their bitter rivals, the Boston Red Sox for a 3-game series starting on Tuesday night. Find out more about the latest MLB betting picks here.

Why bet on the New York Yankees

The New York Yankees (11-7) are a perfect example of why it’s never a good idea to get too up or down on a team in the early part of the MLB season. They jumped out to a rather tepid 1-4 start, causing some concern in the Bronx, but they followed that up with an 8-game win streak that has since levelled out a little. This series will give us a better idea of what this team is all about, as it may tell us whether the Yankees are going to be able to win on the road. They are 8-1 at home this season compared to 3-6 away from home, so it’s time to start picking up some wins in tougher territory. Luis Severino (1-1, 4.05 ERA) will be on the mound for the Yankees on Tuesday night.

Why bet on the Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox (11-8) are right there among the leaders in the AL East in the early going, and they have done a nice job of limiting the losing streaks to start the season. They will be looking to bounce back after losing 2 of 3 to the Orioles to end last week, and will need continued strong work from their pitching staff if they are to keep the Yankees bats at bay. Fenway Park has been friendly to Boston this season, as they are coming into this series with a 7-2 record in their own building. Rick Porcello (1-2, 5.32 ERA) will be looking to stop the bleeding, as he is coming into this game off back to back losing efforts.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

Would not be surprised to see a lot of runs scored in this one, and while the Red Sox have been good at home this season, I have a hunch that the Yankees might just get the win here.
