Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
I look for the Red Sox to start off the second half of the season in good fashion. They need to start playing better if they wish to stay at the top of their division.
The Red Sox are the better team and I look for them to show that on Thursday. So far, they have had success against the Yankees and I look for that to continue.
The last time that Rodriguez went against the Yankees he pitched very well. I look for him to have a strong outing in this one. The Red Sox should be able to hit around whoever the Yankees are starting.
I will take the Red Sox as +148 dogs on the road.
