Boston 150

WIN

ANALYSIS: Nick Pivetta is one of the streakiest pitchers in the league, but when he is pitching well, he pitches very well. He has now pitched three straight quality starts and allowed just 2 ER in 22 IP. That includes six scoreless innings against the White Sox. Dylan Cease is also pitching well this season and he allowed 1 ER in 5 IP against the Red Sox earlier this season. The White Sox actually swept the Red Sox in Boston earlier this month, but I think that just means more of a revenge spot for the Red Sox now that they are playing well. The Red Sox have won five straight games now and 8 of their last 10 games overall, so we know they are hot right now. The White Sox just beat the Yankees in a doubleheader, but they lost 6 of their last 10 games before that sweep, so we just don't know if they've turned things around. The White Sox are also just 9-10 at home this season and struggle against righties. The Red Sox have the third highest wOBA in the league against righties in May while the White Sox are ranked 20th. Everything for me points to this game being a toss-up, I like the value on the Red Sox on the road.
