Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
The Red Sox have been playing good baseball as of late and I think that will continue in this one. At the moment, I just do not have confidence betting the Yankees.
The Red Sox are the better team and I look for them to show that on Sunday.
To me, Perez is the better pitcher here. I look for him to toss a solid game and for the Sox to hit around Taillon.
Give me the Sox as +125 road dogs.
