With the Tampa Bay Rays unable to deal with the awful turnover that hit the organization this past offseason, the American League East has once again become a showdown featuring one of the greatest rivalries in the history of the game. Only one-half game separates the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees for the AL East lead, and with less than two months to go in the regular season things are just heating up as the two sides get  hook up for a three-game set this MLB betting weekend at Fenway Park.

The Yankees have managed to remain in contention for a division title all season despite a relatively mediocre group of arms beyond ace CC Sabathia, but if they are going to have any chance at clinching a division title they will need those arms to be even better. That begins with 38-year old Bartolo Colon, who has somehow managed to keep his ERA down to 3.30 this season while posting an 8-6 record for the pinstripes. Colon will get the call for New York on Friday to open the series against Jon Lester for the Red Sox. Lester is 11-4 with a 3.17 ERA, and has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his last five sports betting starts.

Both the Red Sox and Yankees’ offense rank among the best in the majors this season, so it is no surprise that the series will likely come down to pitching. While Lester got the edge in the opener, it is scary to think what the New York offense is capable of doing to Jon Lackey in the second game. Lackey has been able to put together some quality starts this season but for the most part he has been very inconsistent, as illustrated by his awful 6.23 ERA. The Yankees will counter with ace CC Sabathia, and unless Lackey can pitch a gem this game should provide the biggest disparity of the series.

The most intriguing game of this series will undoubtedly be the finale, as the Yankees try and move into a tie with Boston for first place. Josh Beckett has been among the most pleasant surprises for the Red Sox this season, but at the same time Freddy Garcia has been very good of late for New York, and his ERA is down to 3.22 on the year. Both teams will play with urgency, but don’t expect Garcia to be able to get past the talented Red Sox the way he has with some weaker offenses, as Boston makes a statement in front of the sports betting bonus home fans to clinch the series at Fenway Park.
