MLB Picks: Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees

1 of 4

    The New York Yankees are still searching for their first win of the 2013 season, which is important to consider when making your MLB picks Thursday night as they prepare to close out a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium.

    Sports bettors will find that the Yankees are minus-125 home favorites in the pro baseball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total sits at eight in the betting market.

    Let's take a closer look at this American League East matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction on the total along the way.

Boston Red Sox

2 of 4

    The Boston Red Sox are aiming for their first 3-0 start to a season since 1999, which is far different than their 1-5 record through six games a year ago.

    Sports bettors will find that the Red Sox have produced a 19-19 record against the New York Yankees at new Yankee Stadium.

    New York Yankees starting pitcher Andy Pettitte is 32-22 with a 3.55 ERA in 75 career appearances (71 starts) in the month of April.

    Sports bettors will find that the Yankees are 11-5 in Pettitte's last 16 starts as a favorite of minus-110 to minus-150, while they are 4-1-1 in his last six outings an an UNDER. 

Prediction

4 of 4

    I'm going to recommend that readers play the total as one of their MLB picks Thursday night, as the UNDER is 4-0 in Andy Pettitte's last four efforts versus American League East opponents.
