There’s no greater rivalry in baseball than the New York Yankees versus the Boston Red Sox. They’ll play a three-game set at Yankee Stadium this week; the finale is Thursday at 7 PM ET on ESPN, with Michael Pineda (4.38 FIP) pitching for New York and David Price making his third start of the year for Boston.

Price (3.60 FIP last year) suffered an elbow injury in spring training and wasn’t activated until May 29, when he gave up three runs to the Chicago White Sox (+143 at home) in five innings of a 5-4 loss. But Price looked like his old self on Saturday, holding the Baltimore Orioles (+103 at home) to one run on three hits over seven innings as the Red Sox prevailed 5-2.
Pineda has led the Yankees to an 8-3 record in his 11 starts, picking up 4.52 betting units in the process. However, the towering northpaw has also enjoyed 6.82 runs of support per game and a friendly .276 BABIP. The over is 7-4 for Pineda thus far. Meanwhile, CF Jacoby Ellsbury (.771 OPS) has been shut down indefinitely for the Yankees with recurring concussion symptoms. He’s expected to see a neurologist this week.
