Prediction and Conclusion

This weekend will bring us the biggest series in baseball, as the Red Sox are in New York. The current form of both teams makes this matchup even more interesting, as the Red Sox are coming off a four-game winning streak while the Yankees have the worst stretch of the season. The Yankees lost three straight home games to the Cincinnati Reds and will try to end the losing streak with Nestor Cortes on the mound. He is 4-7 for the season, with a 3.51 ERA, 98 K, 105 IP, and 1.10 WHIP. The Red Sox have a better pitcher ready for tonight, as Tanner Houck is 7-6 for the season with a 2.67 ERA, 105 K, 107.2 IP, and 1.02 WHIP. Given the odds and the state of emergency, the Yankees are the favorite in this one, but the Red Sox are in better form and will be able to cover the +1.5-run spread.
