Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees Betting Info, Odds and Picks (Saturday, July 17, 2021)

Last year the Red Sox were so dreadful that nobody gave them a chance in 2021.  Boston symbolically raised the white flag in the 2020 offseason when they traded Mookie Betts to the Dodgers.  Interim manager Ron Roenicke never had a chance with the MLB betting odds.  As a result, Alex Cora is back as manager after sitting out the 2020 campaign.  Cora led the Red Sox to the 2018 World Series Championship.  But his ties to the Astros sign-stealing scandal forced him to vacate in 2020.  Meanwhile, the Yankees are the biggest disappointment in baseball.
