The Boston Red Sox took it to the New York Yankees on Friday night, beating them by double-digit runs in a 15-5 schlacking.
Now, after Saturday's game was postponed due to bad weather, the two teams will face-off in a Sunday double-header.
Clarke Schmidt (4.70 ERA) will face Kaleb Ort (5.87 ERA) in the first of two games.
Let's dive into the odds for Game 1.
Yankees vs. Red Sox Game 1 odds, run line, and total

- Yankees -1.5 (+135)
- Red Sox +1.5 (-155)
- 9.5 (Over -115/Under -105)
Yankees vs. Red Sox prediction and pick
I have no interest in backing the Yankees with their banged up offense right now. Since Aaron Judge has gone down with a toe injury, New York has been absolutely terrible.
over the last 14 days, they are the worst offense team in baseball and that's no exaggeration. Over that time span, they have an OPS of .625 and a batting average of .205. Both of those marks rank dead last in the Majors over that time span.
Over that same time span, the Red Sox rank 12th in OPS at .741 and ninth in batting average at .254.
Let's trust those numbers and ride with the Red Sox as underdogs in the first of two games today.
Pick: Red Sox +100
