BOS (28-27) -120 u8.5 (-115) +1.5 (-190)


For this matchup, we predict that the Boston Red Sox will come out on top. Here's why:

Nick Pivetta's performance has been consistent, with a respectable 4.20 ERA and a WHIP of 1.07. His control and ability to limit walks are significant advantages against the Tigers' lineup.

Rafael Devers is a key offensive player for the Red Sox, boasting a .289 batting average and a strong .380 OBP. His ability to get on base and drive in runs will be pivotal in this game.

Additionally, despite their home record being 11-15, the Red Sox have shown resilience and the ability to win close games, as evidenced by their recent 8-3 victory over Baltimore. Their overall team stats, including a 3.22 ERA and .244 batting average, are indicators of their balanced performance both offensively and defensively.

Conversely, the Tigers' inconsistency and recent losses suggest vulnerabilities that the Red Sox can exploit. Jack Flaherty's good form will be tested by a potent Boston lineup.

Pick: Boston Red Sox (-120)
