Baseball fans will watch on Tuesday as the Yankees vs. Red Sox live streaming online and televised game takes place for the 2018 MLB season. Right now, Boston is on a hot streak to start the season, as they’ve won eight-straight games after losing their opener. Meanwhile, their rivals are reeling with injuries that have hit them in multiple spots. Here’s the latest game preview with odds to win, points total, TV start time, channels, and how to watch the Yankees vs. Red Sox live streaming online.
As they head into tonight’s showdown, the Boston Red Sox are the early leaders in the American League East. Boston has lost just once in the nine games they’ve played this season, while the New York Yankees (5-5) are continuing to deal with injury issues. That has NY in third-place in the latest MLB standings for the AL East, ahead of tonight’s matchup. However, they’ll send Luis Severino to the mound tonight. He’s started the season off hot with a perfect 2-0 record and a 1.38 ERA. On the other side will be Boston’s star pitcher Chris Sale. He’s yet to record any wins or losses but sports a 0.82 ERA so far this season.
After losing their opening game 6-4 at Tampa Bay, the Red Sox haven’t lost a game and their MVP so far could be Xander Bogaerts. He’s leading the team with a 0.368 average at the plate and has hit two home runs, driving in a total of nine RBI to start the season. He’s also leading the team with 14 hits, but several other players are nearby. Unfortunately, as ESPN reported, Bogaerts will be out of action for up to two weeks due to injury, leaving other players such as Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez to step up.
For tonight’s game, Odds Shark indicates that the Boston Red Sox are priced as -129 favorites while the New York Yankees are +119 on the moneyline consensus odds. Tonight’s over/under runs total is at just seven runs for the game, due to the pitching matchup as both teams will have two of their aces on the mound. Severino or Sale could end up winning the AL’s Cy Young Award by the time the season has ended.
