Baseball already takes center stage at the end of July, which is only exaggerated with most of the summer’s niche sports off as well due to the Summer Olympics.
There are 15 games on Sunday’s Major League Baseball slate, with the New York Yankees taking on the Red Sox anchoring the schedule.
Based on live MLB odds, Boston is a -145 favorite over New York, but before placing wagers on this rivalry matchup bettors need to first be aware of the Fenway Park weather forecast, because it’s an important one.
Let’s take a look at the full Yankees vs. Red Sox forecast, including why it’s so crucial for savvy MLB bettors.
Yankees vs. Red Sox Pick
Wind speed and direction are extremely significant for bettors, as both have a direct effect on scoring.
In addition, some ballparks are affected by wind more than others and Fenway Park is one of those stadiums. The weather forecast is calling for strong 13 mph breezes blowing out home plate, which will certainly help in turning long fly-ball outs into round-trippers.
According to our Bet Labs data, overs are 110-90-8 (55%) since 2005 at Fenway Park when winds average at least 10 miles per hour.
And as I mentioned above, the Boston breezes should be around 13 mph, easily eclipsing that double-digit benchmark.
At the time of writing, 53% of bets on the Yankees vs. Red Sox total have come in on the over, but don’t be surprised to see that percentage increases as more bettors become aware of the weather forecast.
