  • BlackJack Fletcher's favorite games on the Friday slate include Yankees-Red Sox, Rockies-Brewers and Utah State-BYU.

It’s Friday, it’s autumn, we’ve got a change in seasons, and that means only one thing brother: More sports to bet on.

We’re going to sample the fruits available to us today. We’re going to delve into postseason baseball and we’re even going to play some college football.

With a big weekend ahead of college football, NFL, MLB playoffs, and NHL action, we need to start this thing right, so let’s get to it right now, baby.


New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox (-181)

This is the series everyone will be paying attention to, the series everyone wanted to see.

The Yankees and Red Sox meet for the first time in the postseason since the miraculous Red Sox comeback in 2004 when they were down 3-0 in the ALCS.

The Sox start ace Chris Sale, while the Yankees counter with J.A. Happ.

Happ has been the Yankees’ most consistent starter down the stretch, but that really isn’t saying a whole lot.
