Why you should back the Yankees

New York’s offense is headlined by mashers like Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton has 33 home runs, some of which come of the tape-measure variety, and Judge leads the team with 36 long balls. Judge is also a top-five hitter in the AL in on-base percentage (.371) and, as a team, the Yankees lead the league with a 10.4 percent walk rate. New York is a top-five team in on-base percentage (.324) and, against a left-handed starter in Rodriguez, the Yankees can take advantage of their top-five ranking in weighted runs created against southpaws. 

On the mound, New York can also take solace in starter Jordan Montgomery. He has a sparkling 2.54 ERA in 11 starts since the All-Star break, with a 3.55 ERA for the full season. New York is also stellar in the bullpen, with top-three marks in the American League in ERA (3.63), wins above replacement and ground ball rate (46.7 percent) in 2021.

Why you should back the Red Sox

Boston’s offense has been quite potent this season, including the No. 3 mark in the American League with 800 runs scored. The Red Sox are No. 2 in slugging percentage (.450), No. 4 in on-base percentage (.329) and No. 3 in batting average (.262) among American League clubs, and six of their hitters have at least 18 home runs this season. Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts lead the way, with Devers posting 35 home runs and Bogaerts ranking in the top 10 of the AL in both batting average (.299) and on-base percentage (.369). 

On the pitching side, Boston has clear confidence in Rodriguez. After missing 2020, Rodriguez is rounding into form with a 3.64 ERA in the last nine starts, and he has a 3.00 ERA in four outings against the Yankees this season.
