Our resident professional sport handicapper breaks down the MLB clash between the Yankees/Red Sox this afternoon. Read this revealing article which includes a MLB money line pick on one of these sides.

Farewell Tour Curtain Closer for Jeter
The Red Sox will host the Yankees this afternoon at Fenway Park in Boston with the first pitch scheduled for 1:35 PM ET. This will mark the last regular season game in the illustrious career of Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter. According to MLB odds, the Yankees are a -115 money line road favorite, and the posted total is 7.5. The Yankees have gone 11-6 versus the Red Sox in 2014, including 5-2 at Fenway Park. It’s a real rarity over the last 20-seasons when the Red Sox and Yankees will be playing on the final day of the regular season, and both teams have been eliminated from being part of postseason play.

 

The Starting Pitchers
The Yankees starter this afternoon will be right-hander Michael Pineda. The promising youngster has failed to stay healthy long enough during the past 2-seasons, preventing the Yankees from tapping into his full potential. Pineda managed just 12-starts in 2014, and acquitted himself very well, evidenced by his terrific 1.97 ERA.

The Red Sox turn to Clay Buchholz on the final day of the season. It seems very ironic that the most disappointing pitcher on the staff puts, gets to put the final stamp to a horrible season by the Red Sox. Buchholz has gone a disastrous 11-16 against the money in 2014, posting a very unimpressive 5.31 ERA. He’s also gone 3-10 against the money at Fenway with a miserable 6.69 ERA.

 

Final Take
I know this is an insignificant game regarding the American League standings. However, you just have to think that the Yankees want to send Derek Jeter riding off into the sunset, winning his last ever MLB game in a truly remarkable career. The Yankees entered their game on Saturday having won 7 of their last 10-games. The Red Sox endured an uncustomary terrible year at Fenway, displayed by their 33-46 record as of yesterday.

 

MLB Betting System
Before placing your MLB picks, understand that any money line road favorite of -110 or more, with a pitcher who allows an average of 0.5 or less home runs per start on the year, versus an American League starting pitcher with a WHIP of 1.30 to 1.40, has gone 76-22 (77.6%) since 1997.
