The Chase for 61! Enjoy the Sweat with Judge

Fantasy football guru Matthew Berry has joined the team and his two shows have you covered all season long. Spend weekdays at noon with the Fantasy Football Happy Hour and then, every Sunday at 11am getting ready for kickoff with the Fantasy Football Pregame. Watch both shows live on Peacock and catch replays for the weekday show on the NFL on NBC YouTube channel.


The drive for 61 continues tonight in the Bronx. Seems too perfect a setting considering the opponent is the Boston Red Sox, the arch-rival of the Yankees. This season, Judge has mashed five home runs in 14 games against the Red Sox.

Michael Wacha is scheduled to start for Boston. The Sox hurler has held Aaron Judge hitless in 15 plate appearances this season with nine strikeouts and one walk.

As we noted yesterday, Judge is in position to win the Triple Crown. He would be the first to earn it since Miguel Cabrera (44 HR, 139 RBI, .330 avg.) of the Tigers in 2012 led the league in Home Runs, RBI, and Batting Average. The Yankee outfielder (60 HR, 128 RBI, .317 avg.) is light years ahead of his “peers” in the Home Run and RBI categories, but he is in a dogfight for the batting title with…Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts.



Like so many baseball fans, PointsBet is invested in this series and Aaron Judge's race into the record books. They are offering seven special bets involving Judge including Specials Hits, Total Bases, RBI, Runs, Home Runs, and a head-to-head play of Bogaerts vs. Judge.

Be a part of the excitement…and get a boost in the process courtesy of PointsBet.

Enjoy the game tonight and enjoy the sweat!
