MLB Thursday

1-1 last selection on a designed play. YTD 76-55-2 +40.97 units

This game, this match up today may not live up to it's past billing, but you gotta cap it and bet it like you mean it because Red Sox are in the Bronx for the final days of this storied stadium.
Jon Lester will lead the quest to put the daggard as the first 2 contest in this series was not even close.

Lester is #2 money pitcher after Matsuzaka. He's pitched 16 innings allowing 2 runs against the Yanks this year. Lester returns to Yankee Stadium where he shut down the Bombers going all the way on 7/03. He is coming off a bad outing against Toronto yet he has 5 quality starts out of last 7, 8 quality out of 10 against division and Boston has not lost Lester's start in a row.

Yankees maybe down, but they are not going away without a fight. Taking the home mound will be Bombers top money pitcher Mike Mussina. Yankees undefeated with Moose on the job in August. He is also 5 quality out of last 7. Mike also coming into a spot to improve after a non quality start with no decision. His 1.20 drops to 0.97 WHIP under daylight and Yanks stand 7-1

It looks like a good one and should be closer than the first 2. I'm taking the UNDER and backing Mussina to stop the bleeding at home. I expect Yankees bats to make their adjustments against Lester and salvage this series at Bronx. Yanks also 15-3 in game 3 of series after a loss.

BOS/NYY UNDER 9.5 at -110 for 1 unit(W)
NYY -118 for 1 unit(W)

2-0 +2.00 units
