Probable Pitching Matchup – Sale vs. Montgomery
Sale is 14-4 on the season with a 2.57 ERA. He struck out 13 last time against the Rays in a 2-0 win. He struck out 13 Yankees in his last start against New York. Sale has held opponents scoreless in five of his last seven outings. He has faced the Yankees twice this season and allowed two earned runs in 15 innings.
Sunday would normally be the spot for Sabathia to start but he injured his knee in his last start and probably will miss this start on Sunday. That may not be bad news for New York, as Sabathia hasn’t pitched as well lately as he did for most of the season. He is just 1-3 with a 6.38 ERA in his last four starts. Montomgery was sent down to the minors when the Yankees went from a six-man rotation down to five. He has a 7-6 record with a 4.05 ERA in 21 starts. He faced the Red Sox earlier this season and allowed three runs in four innings.
The Yankees are 1-4 in their last 5 games vs. a left-handed starter. The Under is 4-1-1 in the Yankees last 6 games vs. a left-handed starter. Eight of the last 11 between New York and Boston have gone under.
Red Sox vs. Yankees Free Picks
Sale has been great lately and I think the change to Montgomery instead of Sabathia is a good one for New York. The Yankees might be worth a shot at plus money at top sportsbooks but I will go under the total on Sunday night. Make sure to check back for odds at BetDSI.
