You’ve heard of Beava Las Vegas haven’t you? He’s been making winning picks since before Leon Lett’s fumble in Super Bowl XXVII and well before Shaun Alexander was fantasy relevant. Well folks, Ask the Bookie will now be getting some picks from the man himself. He’s a close friend with Joe Berra, and while this kinda started out as a joke, Beava is no joke. 12 is a joke though.

19-3 and 10-5. Those have been the final scores from the first two games of a 4-game set at Fenway between the BoSox and Yanks. Let’s be real…if you’re not a fan of the Sox – Yanks rivalry, you are not a sports fan or an American.
Leave it to this rivalry to spark a fire under the Sox.
They needed it, at risk of missing the playoffs. They are having no trouble scoring runs, but pitching has been the issue. The crazy thing is, the Red Sox are leading most team offensive stat categories, and Mookie Betts and JD Martinez are having “down years”.
This is why I like the OVER today, but it doesn’t end there.
Carsten Charles has been showing his age, struggling in recent outings, and oh yeah, the Yankees are 2nd in runs scored in the Majors. The Yankees have scored 596 runs with Boston crossing the plate 611 times. The Twins are next at 592, with the Dodgers (567) and Rockies (565) rounding out the top 5.
Don’t forget this Yanks lineup is loaded as well. Judge, Parrot Boy, LeMahieu, Didi, Voit.
These recent pitching struggles the Yankees are experiencing leading up to the trade deadline is forcing GM Brian Cashman’s hand. Don’t be surprised if they address their starting pitching woes very soon.
