Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees 4/8/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Boston Red Sox will go against the New York Yankees in an MLB 2022 regular-season game in Yankee Stadium, NY, on Friday, April 8, 2022, at 1:05 PM ET. Last year, Boston surprised a lot of people by beating the Yankees in the AL Wild Card game, then upsetting the Rays and battling the Astros hard.

 

The Red Sox will not be creeping up on anyone this year, and opening the year on the road against the Yankees will not be easy. Boston, on the other hand, will be riding a wave of confidence and energy into this game, thanks to their AL Wild Card victory against the Yankees.

 

Boston doesn’t have any position player concerns to worry about, which helps. Chris Sale (ribs) and James Paxton (elbow) will be out until the end of the season, but the absence of Josh Taylor (back) in the bullpen might hamper the team’s depth over the weekend.

 

After another strong season for the Red Sox, Nathan Eovaldi will start the season opener for Boston. Last season, he faced New York 7 times throughout the regular season, finishing 2-2 while also winning the Wild Card encounter.

 

He pitched 5.1 innings in that game, surrendering 4 hits and striking out 8 batters, statistics he’ll try to repeat in Friday’s start. In this one, the hard-throwing righty will seek to make fast work of the New York lineup.

 

  • The total went OVER in 8 of Boston’s last 9 matches.
  • The Boston Red Sox are 1-6 SU in their last 7 matches against the NY Yankees.
  • Boston is 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches on the road against the NY Yankees.

Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees Predictions 4/8/2022

 

Last year, high expectations were placed on New York, and a sluggish start to the year did not help. After a great finish, which included domination over Boston during the All-Star break, expectations for the playoffs were raised once again, only to be shattered during their Wild Card trip to Boston.

 

With a quieter offseason than normal, the Yankees have their sights set on reclaiming control of the AL East, which is shaping up to be baseball’s most competitive division. A victory over Boston would be crucial, but a defeat might spark a lot of discussion in the city even after only one game.

 

On the mound, the Yankees are dealing with their own set of problems, with 3 starters or relievers already declared out indefinitely.

 

With Ben Rortvedt (oblique) declared out until the middle of the month, the Yankees’ starting pitcher is a significant question mark. Gerrit Cole will start the game for the Yankees on Friday, and after having his year terminated in the Wild Card game at Fenway Park, he will be aiming to rebound in this one.

 

Last year, Cole went 2-2 against the Red Sox during the regular season, but the playoff defeat left a sour taste in his mouth.

 

  • The NY Yankees are 9-4 SU in their last 13 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of the NY Yankees’ last 6 matches at home.
  • New York is 5-0 SU in their last 5 matches at home against Boston.

Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees. The MLB pick for this game is the Boston Red Sox. New York is the division favorite once again this year, but Boston has a good opportunity to keep it tight, if not sweep it.

 

Eovaldi is outstanding against the Yankees, particularly in high-pressure circumstances, and he will be able to bring that confidence into Friday’s game. Cole’s problems in the Wild Card game Boston’s lineup is still deadly, and their absence at the bat might impact the Yankees.

 

Mistakes and mishandling at catcher might be expensive if there isn’t much stability. Eovaldi is 4-0 in his previous four Thursday starts for the Red Sox, while Cole is 0-4 in his last four Thursday starts for the Yankees. Boston will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
