David OrtizNew York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox Sunday Free MLB Pick: Sunday Night Baseball betting is going to be heading to Fenway Park this week for what will prove to be the rubber match between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. This is a crucial series with just six games separating the first place Red Sox from the fourth place Yankees, and we are set to make our MLB free picks for what should be a doozy in Beantown.

Yankees vs. Red Sox Game Time: 8:05 p.m. ET
Yankees vs. Red Sox Live TV Coverage: ESPN
MLB Odds: Yankees +128 / Red Sox -135 (Total: 9)

We’re really not all that sure why the Red Sox are the favored team in this game. We aren’t all that sure that they are definitively the better of these two teams, even considering the fact that seemingly the entire New York lineup outside of 2B Robinson Cano is on the disabled list. However, the Red Sox are having some real problems with their pitching staff, and we really don’t think all that much of Sunday’s starter, Ryan Dempster. The story is always seemingly the same from Dempster, as he is seemingly allowing three runs over six innings (or something in that whereabouts) every night, and that just might not be good enough in this one. CC Sabathia is going to be dealing for the Yankees, and we are interested to see whether he has a little bit more zing on his fastball at this point now that he has had a full week to let his arm totally rest without having to worry about the All-Star Game. If that’s the case, we think that CC is going to come up with a strong effort to help the men in pinstripes pick up a tremendous victory to clinch a series against one of the top teams in the American League.
