Why Bet On The Boston Red Sox?

Why should you consider betting on Boston in this Wednesday night matchup? There are a handful of reasons, starting with the fact tha the BoSox are going to be a bit semi-desperate as I mentioned. Boston has dropped three of its last four games including their 6-2 loss to Minnesota on Tuesday. Chris Sale gave up two runs on three hits over seven innings of work and struck out 11 but didn’t factor into the decision. Boston has allowed at least six runs in two of their last three losses. Still, another great reason to back the Red Sox in this contest is that they’ve been elite both, at the plate, where they’re ranked third in scoring (5.04 rpg), second in team batting average, second in OPS and an identical second in home runs (105). Boston has also been excellent on the mound in ranking fifth in team ERA (3.45). Veteran left-hander David Price is a prefect 3-0 with a fine, 2.84 ERA over his last three starts and is 10-3 with a 2.52 ERA and 117 strikeouts against Minnesota in his career.

Why Bet On The Minnesota Twins?

Are the Twins a safe bet on Wednesday night? Why should you consider betting on Minnesota in this matchup? Well, the best reason is that the Twins are playing decent baseball and probably want to get on something of a roll after a slow start this season. Minnesota has won three of its last four games and has scored at least six runs in each victory. As a matter of fact, the Twins have scored at least a half-dozen runs inn each of their last five victories so, clearly, their bats are starting to heat up. Veteran right-hander Lance Lynn has gone 1-1 over his last three starts with an excellent 2.41 ERA and he’ll start this affair. In his career, Lynn is 0-1 with a 1.89 ERA and 11 strikeouts against Boston.

Expert Analysis and Prediction

I know that Boston is 7-0 in David Price’s last 7 starts, not to mention a blistering 45-22 in their last 67 road games. However, I’m smelling an upset brewing in this contest, particularly since Lance Lynn owns the BoSox..okay, sort of. I know Minnesota is just 2-6 in Lance Lynn’s last 8 starts against a team with a winning record and 7-19 in their last 26 games against the AL East, but the Twins are hitting the ball really well right now and Boston has struggled just a bit in recent days. I like Minnesota in a one-run finish in the MLB odds. MLB Betting Pick: Minnesota 4 Boston 3
