Walker provides all the offense

Aaron Hicks went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run in Tuesday's 3-2 home triumph over the Red Sox. Neil Walker finished 1-for-3 with a go-ahead 3-run home run in the seventh inning plus a walk. Gleyber Torres had a double in three at-bats. Zach Britton earned the win in relief as he gave up one unearned run on no hits with one strikeout and one walk in one inning.

Bullpen falters for Red Sox

After Nathan Eovaldi threw six shutout innings yesterday, Boston gave up three runs in the seventh with Brandon Workman suffering the loss. He surrendered two earned runs on no hits with two walks in one-third of an inning. Steve Pearce walked twice in three plate appearances to help pace the offense. J.D. Martinez was 1-for-3 with a triple and an RBI. Brock Holt was 1-for-3 with a walk and a run. 

David Price (15-6, 3.42 ERA) will start today for the Red Sox, while the Yankees counter with Luis Severino (17-8, 3.46).

MLB Betting Trends


The Red Sox are 52-21 in their last 73 games overall. Boston is 35-16 in its last 51 Wednesday games.

New York 

The Yankees are 11-2 in Severino's last 13 Wednesday starts. New York is 24-5 in Severino's last 29 home starts.


Severino has struggled a lot in the second half of the season and Boston has seen him a lot. Price has been fairly consistent and has the backing of the best team in baseball. It's always nice to be able to bet on the Red Sox as an underdog and I think this is a good spot to put money on them.
