MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Boston Red Sox will look to assert their dominance over the AL East in the second half of the season, and that journey will continue this Saturday, as they take on their age old rivals the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
Boston Red Sox
There were a lot of people this past off season who were worried that the Boston Red Sox would not be able to bounce back off of a disappointing 2020 campaign, but this team has quickly put those worries to bed through decent pitching and one of the league’s most powerful offenses.
The batting lineup for the Red Sox seemingly just does not end with guys like Xander Bogaerts, Rafael Devers, and JD Martinez in their ranks who all can absolutely rake. They are not the only ones though, as this batting lineup is not only top heavy, but actually quite deep, and it looks like it will be between them and the Astros to decide who has the best batting lineup this year.
Nathan Eovaldi will get the call for this one and he has been great here in 2021 even earning himself a spot in this year’s All-Star game and he will be primed yet again for a good start against a weakened Yankees batting order.
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are not exactly starting out the second half of the season the way they would have liked with many players being unavailable now due to the MLB’s Covid protocols, so it will be tough in the coming weeks for the Yankees to pick up wins with guys like Aaron Judge sidelined.
Gerrit Cole will be called on to help this team pick up a much needed win and although he has been okay this season he has not been untouchable like he has been in recent years and the task really does not get much tougher then the Red Sox for an opposing pitcher.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
This game perfectly matches up for the Red Sox and I think they rough up Cole a bit in this spot, as their are still plenty of question marks hanging over his head including what is going on with his spin rates.
The Red Sox will have a massive advantage in terms of the batting lineups, and I see them taking full advantage and covering this run and a half spread on the runline, which will help us get a much better price here on Saturday.
