Yankees vs Red Sox Sunday Night Baseball Props

Today’s best Yankees vs Red Sox prop bets

Pivot to Pivetta

Red Sox right-hander Nick Pivetta is enjoying what can largely be considered his breakout season, posting a 3.68 ERA over 17 starts entering Sunday night. He’s limiting home runs for seemingly the first time in his six-year career, which will come in handy if he can continue to suppress power against the potent Yankees lineup.

Pivetta’s season opened fairly poorly, completing five innings only once in his first five starts — incidentally, against these very Yankees in his first outing — but has been a completely different pitcher since his May 7 start against the Chicago White Sox.

Ignoring, for a moment, his most recent start against the Tampa Bay Rays where he allowed seven earned runs on eight hits in 5 2-3 innings, Pivetta had gone 8-1 with a 1.95 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 74 innings over his previous 11 outings. He finished at least six innings in 10 of those starts, including a complete-game dismantling of an excellent offense in the Houston Astros.
