Hey, anyone else in an extremely bad mood? Cool!
Why not parlay that bad feeling into an opportunity to throw large chunks of money away betting on the New York Yankees to bounce back? Or maybe you’d rather hedge your bets emotionally, and toss some coin at the Boston Red Sox, who were one out away from a high-profile failure Thursday night but instead get to go home extremely happy?
Much like Jordan Montgomery, who twirled a gem before watching his 1-0 lead disappear and the team’s 3-1 victory vanish a little later, we’re sick to our stomachs. Perfect time to check out the odds.
These two teams head back to the ballpark for Game 2 of a four-game set Friday night, and though there’s no rain in the forecast, we’re sure it’ll inexplicably start sometime around the fifth inning.

Yankees vs Red Sox Odds Today
The Red Sox enter this one with the momentum as the moneyline favorites at -120 (bet $120 to win $100), whereas the Yankees are dead even at +100 (bet $100, nab $100). On the run line, the Yankees are -1.5, and are seen as heavy underdogs to cover (+160, Red Sox at -200).
If you’d like to bet the O/U, it’s 8.5, but why would you ever bet the under at Fenway Park? Unless you really trust that momentum’s only as good as the next day’s starting pitcher…
Yankees vs Red Sox Pitching Matchup
Gerrit Cole (10-4, 2.63) heads to the mound follow two huge starts against the Astros and Red Sox that have somewhat flipped his “slipping” narrative on its head. Hopefully, he’s ready to staunch the bleeding here. He’ll oppose Eduardo Rodriguez (7-5, 5.19) a lefty who’s been much better of late. Theoretically, the Yankees should be able to feast on him with their abundance of righties, but theories never usually come into play when these teams face off.

Soak it in! Everybody good but Florial is playing Friday night.
Yankees vs Red Sox Prediction Today
No way. Absolutely no way. If you’ve seen a Yankees series at Fenway Park before, you’re already girded for a sweep. Nothing makes sense. If Thursday had gone one out differently, I’d be singing a different tune here, but yeah, you should prepare yourselves for the bad version of Friday night’s game.
5-1 Red Sox, with all the scoring coming in the second inning.
