The Red Sox have lost four of Eovaldi’s last five road starts and they have lost five of his last six starts against a team with a winning record.

Severino got the start in the AL Wild Card game and had a good outing not giving up any earned runs and he only allowed two hits in the 7-2 New York win. The Yankees have won his last three starts where he has totaled 16 innings and gave up three earned runs.

Red Sox at Yankees ADLS Game 3 Prediction 10/08/2018

The Yankees have home field advantage in this series after their Game 2 win against Boston and Severino had a great start facing them late in the season. The Red Sox was the highest scoring team in the Majors this season, but they have only totaled seven runs in the first two games of this series. Eovaldi pitched well at the end of the season, and has a solid history against the Yankees. That said, Judge has been on fire and Gary Sanchez had two HR in the Game 2 win and while I believe that both pithers can have good starts, the current form of the Yankees bats has me laying the lumber in this game.
