The New York Yankees are -220 moneyline favorites over the Boston Red Sox, according to BettingPros consensus odds. Currently, they are the only favorite with odds of -200 or higher on the entire Sunday slate. (source)

Betting Impact:

With the Yankees-Red Sox matchup being the only late game played on Sunday, a majority of the money wagered on the game will likely come in the late afternoon. It does not seem too much of the betting public is deterred by the steep odds, as the Yankees have received 75% of all bets thus far. However, the Red Sox have received 45% of the money, which has caused the line to drop from the opening line of Yankees -245. The Yankees own MLB's best record at 6-1 and are the only team in the young season to have a five-game winning streak.
