New York Yankees (Hiroki Kuroda) +145
Boston Red Sox (John Lackey) -155
We are actually fans of the Yankees in the second half of this season, as we think that they are going to continue to turn profits in spite of the fact that they might not ultimately finish any better than fourth in the AL East. This is a tough opening series of the second half of the year in Boston, and the fact that the lineup is just so banged up is starting to really look devastating. Still, we like the pitching matchup here for New York, as RHP Hiroki Kuroda is going to take on RHP John Lackey. Kuroda has been his consistent self all year long, going 8-6 with a 2.65 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. We have seen great pitching relatively speaking out of RHP John Lackey, but in the end, in spite of his 2.78 ERA and 1.14 WHIP, the team is only 8-8 in his 16 starts this year. Lackey only has a 4.68 ERA against the Yankees in his career, and we think that he is destined to end up really getting blown to bits for the first time at home all season long. The price is a really nice one on New York, and we are going to take full advantage of it on Saturday afternoon.
