This model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has returned over $1,000 in profit on its top-rated MLB picks in 2019. It also entered Week 10 on a sizzling 21-7 run on top-rated MLB money line picks. Anybody who has been following it is way up.
Now the model has dialed in on Red Sox vs. Yankees. We can tell you it’s leaning under 10 runs, and it also says one side of the money line has all the value. You can only see that pick at SportsLine.
The model has taken into account that left-hander and staff ace David Price (2-2, 2.83 ERA) gets the start for Boston. He will try to put his struggles at Yankee Stadium (0-6, 9.79 ERA) behind him. Price was strong in his last start, throwing six shutout innings against the Cleveland Indians. For the season, he has allowed just 38 hits, 17 runs – 15 earned – six homers and 11 walks, while striking out 53 in 47 2/3 innings.
Utility-man Brock Holt (.188) appears to have found his hitting stroke of late, hitting in four straight games, including a 2-for-4 performance with a run scored against the Yankees on Saturday night. Shortstop Xander Bogaerts (.301) has also been red hot against the Yankees, going 6-for-16 (.375) with two doubles, one home run and one RBI this season. Statistically, the Red Sox have the edge over the Yankees in a number of offensive categories, including batting average (.259 to .258), on-base percentage (.340 to .335), runs scored (307 to 305), hits (522 to 497), doubles (107 to 80), total bases (887 to 863) and RBIs (288 to 286).
But just because Boston has some favorable matchups against New York does not mean it is the best value on the Red Sox vs. Yankees money line Sunday night.
That’s because not many teams have been as hot as New York has been. The Yankees have won three in a row and 11 of 13. They are 21-11 at home and will be sending left-hander CC Sabathia (3-1, 3.48 ERA) to the mound. He will make his first attempt at reaching 250 career wins as he returns from the Injured List. Despite a sore right knee, he went five innings to beat Baltimore on May 22, allowing five runs – four earned – and six hits. For the season, he has allowed 35 hits, 19 runs – 16 earned – 11 homers and 17 walks, while striking out 34 in 41 1/3 innings.
Designated hitter Kendrys Morales (.199) had a big game on Saturday against Boston, going 3-for-4 with a run scored, while first baseman Luke Voit (.267) has three multi-hit games over the last four, including a 3-for-4 performance Saturday. Catcher Gary Sanchez (.264) has a five-game hitting streak, including a tie-breaking two-run homer Saturday against Boston.
