New York Yankees DFS SPIN
Manager Aaron Boone recorded his 500th career win after Tuesday’s 4-1 win against Boston on Tuesday night. Boone now holds a career 500-353 record over six seasons with New York.
Boston Red Sox DFS SPIN
Highly anticipated Red Sox prospect, Ceddanne Rafaela went 2-5 and knocked his first career home run in Tuesday’s 4-1 loss. Rafaela is looking to make an impression to become an everyday starter for the Red Sox in 2024. In a limited sample size, Rafaela is hitting .345 over his first 29 major-league at bats.

Yankees vs. Red Sox MLB BETTING PREDICTION
Michael King has been effective in his newfound role as a starter for New York. In his last two starts he has allowed a total of 2 runs in 10 innings pitched, while striking out 13. Meanwhile for Boston, Tanner Houck has struggled as of late after allowing 9 earned runs combined in last 10 innings. The Yankees are playing much better baseball in the final month of the season and while it will more than likely not be enough to secure a playoff spot come October, I believe they are a good bet to grab game one versus Boston at this price.
