Luis Severino toes the rubber against Boston in the ALDS on Monday. Severino comes off of a 7-2 win (ND) versus Oakland in the Wild Card with four scoreless innings of work.
Boston are 8-1 in their last 9 Monday games and over is 6-1-1 in Boston last 8 on grass and over is 6-1-1 in Boston last 8 overall. Over is 8-1 in NY Yankees last 9 overall and over is 7-1 in NY Yankees last 8 vs. American League East and over is 13-3 in NY Yankees last 16 games following a win. Boston are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in New York.
Porcello has been solid against the Yankees but I think New York has the momentum and gets game two at home behind Severino…
