Yankees Game Today: Yankees vs Red Sox Lineup, Odds, Prediction, Pick, Pitcher, TV for Aug. 18


How…did the 2021 New York Yankees…just pull that off?!

The job is not done. Far from it. But one month ago, there’s no way the Yankees win either half of Tuesday’s doubleheader, let alone sweep it.

Luckily for fans of the heroes and not supporters of villains like Alex Cora, potentially 30 different bounces went New York’s way in the first two games of this set, both of which lasted just seven innings.

The Wandy Peralta knockdown throw. The Jonathan Loaisiga bases-loaded jam, the exact situation that’s gone awry for the Yanks 100 times this season. The Joey Gallo throw. The Andrew Velazquez single. The Luke Voit laser throw to third! Lots of good things, very few bad things, plenty of hairy situations.

So…how confident are you this wild team can do it a third time? Really think about it.

Yankees vs Red Sox Odds Today

According to our friends at WynnBET, the Yanks are narrow favorites on the moneyline, checking in at -125 (bet $125 to win $100). The Red Sox check in at exactly +100 (bet $100 to win $100), which is interesting, considering what seems to be a pitching mismatch and increased urgency for Alex Cora’s crew.

The spread is -1.5 in favor of the Red Sox, and Boston’s at +150 to cover that (win by two or more). Considering all the Bombers do is play close games, maybe you prefer their odds, which are -190 to either win outright or lose by one.

The over/under for this one is 10.5; +104 on the over and -125 on the under.

Yankees Pitcher Today

Yeah…about that…because the team insisted on Gerrit Cole’s comeback coming on Monday, it’s Andrew Heaney on the rubber (7-8, 5.78 ERA). He’s been even worse in pinstripes, surrendering 15 earned runs in 15 innings on the mound, including a difficult start in the Field of Dreams Game on national television.

The bullpen’s also obviously been burned; Chad Green and Jonathan Loaisiga will be unavailable, meaning…Zack Britton will shoulder the load after begging out of doing so. Joely Rodriguez will be there, too. Could get bleak.

Yankees Starting Lineup

Anthony. Rizzo. Is. Back.

Luke Voit is on the bench. C’mon, now.

Yankees vs Red Sox Prediction Today

The New York Yankees have already accomplished a fairly significant mission in this series, and the worst they can do is end the set tied with Boston in the loss column.

We’re not sure how their piece together five innings on Wednesday, let alone nine. Boston’s desperation is rewarded here with a 9-5 win.
