The Insomniac – Betting tips for all you sleep-deprived punters

| 08.06.2011

The Yankee Stadium will be packed to the rafters for the seventh game of the season between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees tonight.

It’s a rivalry that dates back over 100 years and is one of the fiercest in the sporting calendar, and there will be no love lost between the Red Sox players and the Yankee fans inside Yankee Stadium tonight.

Boston are holding all the bragging rights at the moment having won six of their seven games with the Yankees this season, and while the Yankees sit atop the East American League, the Red Sox look incredible value at 11/10 to claim a seventh win of the season.

The Red Sox are on a four-match winning streak thanks to their whitewash over Oakland at Fenway Park last weekend, and their 15-13 on the road this season.

A 6-4 win in the Yankee Stadium last night leaves the Boston players high in confidence and having already completed a clean sweep on the road to the Yankees in mid May, the Red Sox look like their holding all the value in the MLB odds.

The Yankees will be seething over their six defeats to the Red Sox this season and manager Joe Girardi will be desperate to end the five-match winless streak but his side offer little value at 10/13 to win.

Boston have two whitewashes to their name over the Yankees this season with a 4-0 win in April and a 6-0 win in March, but things should be a lot tighter tonight and punters should take the5/6 for over 10 runs.

The Yankees may be without star man Mark Teixeira tonight and should the batsman with a team-best 18 home runs this year miss out, Boston are the bankers to make it six straight wins.
