The New York Yankees will try to snap out of their first real losing skid of the season when they face the Boston Red Sox in a rivalry game on Saturday night. New York has lost five of its last six games, with three of those losses coming to Boston. However, the Yankees are still 3.5 games ahead of Houston for the best record in the MLB. Right-handed pitcher Nick Pivetta (8-6, 4.08 ERA), who has allowed 13 runs over his last two starts, will be on the mound for Boston on Saturday.
Pivetta has struggled in five career appearances against the Yankees, going 0-2 with an 8.50 ERA. The Yankees are -165 favorites (risk $165 to win $100) in the latest MLB odds at Caesars Sportsbook, while the Red Sox are +140 underdogs.

After simulating every game 10,000 times, one pick the model likes for Saturday is San Francisco to beat Milwaukee as a -130 favorite. The Giants come into this game with momentum after scoring six runs in the bottom of the ninth to pick up an 8-5 win on Friday night. Joey Bart and Darin Ruf both hit solo home runs off Milwaukee’s Josh Hader to set the stage for an eventual walk-off grand slam by Mike Yastrzemski later in the inning.
San Francisco starter Alex Cobb might be winless in his last seven starts, but he has a solid 3.86 ERA during that stretch. The 34-year-old has had success against Milwaukee in the past, going 1-1 with a 1.29 ERA. San Francisco picked up a 5-1 victory when it faced Milwaukee starting pitcher Eric Lauer last season.
