Why the Boston Red Sox are a good bet on the money line?
Boston starter Rick Porcello has the playoff experience and experience against NYY to shut down the Yankees’ batting line-up. Porcello’s 4.28 ERA doesn’t look like much until you realize that he went 17-7 during the regular season. One thing’s he’s great at doing is keeping base runners off the base paths. Porcello has a 1.18 WHIP. Any WHIP at 1.20 or below is fantastic.
Porcello’s also pitched well versus New York. The Yankees bat .218 against him while he’s struck out 51 batters from 261 at-bats.

Why the New York Yankees are a good bet on the money line?
Few pitchers in MLB can contain Boston’s powerful batting lineup like CC Sabathia. Overall, the Red Sox bat .253 against CC, but individually, CC’s handled some of Boston’s top batters.
Andrew Benintnedi bats .222, Xander Bogaerts bats .152, Jackie Bradley Jr. bats .226 and J.D. Martinez bats .143. If Sabathia can have more success against Mookie Betts, he bats .429, Sabathia could pitch a good enough game for a Yankees victory.

Final MLB Betting Analysis for Red Sox vs Yankees
Both pitchers should throw well with Rick Porcello having more trouble than CC Sabathia. Porcello’s only had minimal success against the Yankees top home run hitters, Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge.
Judge bats .250 against Porcello while Stanton has 3 hits from 8 at-bats for a .375 average. Unless Porcello has found a way to stop Judge and Stanton, he could put the Red Sox into a hole that they might not climb out of.
Yankees take Game 4.
