LINE MOVEMENT: The Red Sox opened as -130 money line favorites but their odds have been bet down to -120, while the Yankees' odds have gone from +120 down to +111. New York enters play with a 63-59 overall record and is 29-32 on the road this year, while Boston is 73-52 and 40-22 at home.

MLB FREE PICK: Take Boston. According to latest MLB trends, New York Yankees are: 2-6 last 8 Sunday games, 1-5 last 6 road games and 1-6 in Sabathia's last 7 starts. Boston is: 21-8 last 29 home games, 5-1 last 6 during game 3 of a series and 7-0 in Dempster's last 7 starts as a favorite.

The Yankees turn to big lefty C.C. Sabathia (10-10, 4.66 ERA) against Ryan Dempster (6-8, 4.50 ERA). Sabathia has been brutal lately but finally picked up a win last Tuesday against the Angels. He still walked six guys and allowed a home run, but just two earned. In his last performance against Boston on July 21, he was pounded for nine hits including two home runs along with seven earned. Before the Angels' start, he had posted an 8.33 ERA over his previous five starts. Sabathia owns a 3-4 record with a 6.51 ERA in his last nine starts against Boston. Dustin Pedroia is about 14 inches shorter but he is 13-of-24 with three doubles against Sabathia since 2011. Dempster is not Boston's ace but he did pitch well in his last start, allowing one run on four hits in seven innings against Toronto on Tuesday. Sabathia's struggles continue on Sunday night.

MLB FREE PICK: BOSTON RED SOX -120
