Under is 5-2-1 in NY Yankees last 8 Sunday games and under is 19-8-2 in NY Yankees last 29 road games and NY Yankees are 9-4 in their last 13 Sunday games. Boston are 16-5 in their last 21 Sunday games and under is 19-7-1 in Boston last 27 home games and Boston are 40-15 in their last 55 home games.
I’d rather watch this then bet it to be honest but I’d give New York a shot but small at most for an interest…
