(969) Boston vs. NY Yankees (970) 7:07 PM | Sat, Aug 01 2020
Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Score NYY 5 at BOS 2
-1.5 NYY (-105) @ pinnacle

The New York Yankees have as expected been one of the best teams in baseball and enter this contest with a 5-1 record.

For this one, they'll hand the ball to former ace Masahiro Tanaka (2019: 11-9, 4.45 ERA) for his season debut and I think he should be able to shut down a Red Sox side that has averaged only 3.4 runs per game since putting up 13 in its season opener.

The Red Sox hand the ball to Zach Godley (2019: 3-5, 6.39 ERA) who struggled through most of last season. Godley is coming off four scoreless innings of relief versus the New York Mets, but this stacked Yankee lineup is a completely different animal than the Mets. 

The Yankees won the series opener 5-1 and I think they'll win this one by at least two runs as well. 

10* play on the NY Yankees -1.5

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
