BOS (30-30) +140 u8.5 (-110) +1.5 (-120)

Prediction:

For this matchup, the prediction is that the Braves will win on the moneyline. Here's why:

First, the Braves have been performing well overall and have a winning record both at home and on the road. Their starting pitcher, Max Fried, has been consistent with a 2.97 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP, indicating strong form.

Second, the Red Sox have struggled recently, especially with Kutter Crawford on the mound. Crawford has lost his last five starts, which highlights a pattern of difficulties in securing wins when he pitches.

Third, the Braves' offense, led by Marcell Ozuna, who has 17 home runs and a .313 batting average, provides a significant edge. Ozuna's power and consistency at the plate are key factors that can exploit Crawford's recent struggles.

Additionally, the Red Sox's home record of 13-17 indicates challenges in capitalizing on their home-field advantage. Combined with Crawford's recent performance issues, this further tilts the advantage towards the Braves.

Pick: Atlanta Braves Moneyline (-165)
