The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will wrap up the weekend with an American League East matchup on Sunday. Boston is only second to the Tampa Bay Rays in the division and has taken the first two games of its three-game series against New York. Can the Red Sox complete a 3-0 sweep? Let’s go over the best betting options at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Red Sox vs. Yankees, 7:08 p.m. ET, ESPN

Moneyline pick: Red Sox +128

Boston has been a great batting team all year. It’s a top-five ball club in runs scored, hits, and batting average. The Red Sox haven’t had a problem winning on the road and have won three straight on enemy turf. In fact, they’ve won more away games (19) than home games this season. New York’s Domingo German has given up two homers in each of his last two starts. The Yankees have struggled to provide run support without hitting the long ball and have the 26th-ranked scoring offense, so Boston has the edge.

Player Prop: Aaron Judge to hit a home run (+290)

Judge hasn’t been at his best at the plate lately but still leads the Yankees with 14 home runs this year. He’s actually gotten the best of Boston’s Garrett Richards. While he’s only faced Richards three times in 2018, he’s a perfect 3-for-3 with a double, and RBI, and one walk. There’s no guarantee that he’ll continue batting 1.000 against Richards, but history suggests that this matchup favors him.
