BOS (30-31) -110 u9.5 (EVEN) +1.5 (-180)

Prediction:

The prediction for this matchup is that the Boston Red Sox will win the game. Here are the reasons:

First, Nick Pivetta has shown solid form this season, with a 4.08 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. His ability to limit walks and strike out batters will be crucial against a strong Braves lineup.

Second, the Red Sox offense, led by Rafael Devers, has been productive, particularly at Fenway Park. Devers' ability to get on base and drive in runs will be a key factor in the Red Sox's favor.

Third, the Braves' starting pitcher, Spencer Schwellenbach, has limited experience and has struggled in his outings. The Red Sox hitters can exploit his inexperience and create scoring opportunities.

Moreover, the Red Sox have a slight edge in analytics, with a 57.2% chance of winning according to ESPN Analytics. Playing at home, they will look to rebound from their recent losses and gain momentum.

Pick: Red Sox Moneyline (-110)
