April 20, 2012

Rivalries in any sport make the sport more interesting and make for great storylines and betting lines. Tonight’s matchup is one of baseball’s most storied rivalries. The Boston Red Sox host the New York Yankees at Fenway Park, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Both clubs have not had the best of starts to the season as the Yankees are just 7-6 on the season and the Red Sox are 4-8.

This rivalry in Fenway Park started on April 20, 1912, exactly one hundred years to the date of tonight’s matchup. The Yankees have had their problems thus far and Derek Jeter has not played well at the plate. He will be facing the Boston’s Clay Buchholz who is 1-0 with an ERA of 9.82. One Yankee not looking forward to facing Buchholz is Curtis Granderson who is a career 0 for 11 against the pitcher. Buchholz is 2-3 lifetime in seven starts against New York, but at Fenway he is 0-2 in three starts.

Boston has lost three consecutive games while at home, including a short two game series against the Texas Rangers. Ivan Nova will be going for the Yankees and he has been one of their few bright spots thus far in the season. Nova is 2-0 with an ERA of 4.15, but is 0-1 at Fenway in two starts over his career.

Last season the teams met eight times at Fenway and each team won four games. Since the regular season of 2000, the Yankees are 55-54 in their 109 games at the home of the fabled Green Monster. Boston is favored at -105, while Yankees line is +105. The total is at 10. This rivalry usually does not take into consideration won and loss records, all that is left in the clubhouse. The game should be close, but the home team Red Sox will take this game with the total ending Over.
