Betting Trends

Oakland is 5-10 SU in their last 15 games overall, 3-14 SU in their last 17 games against the Red Sox and 1-14 SU in their last 15 games on the road. They have played over the total run line in 4 of their last 5 games against teams from the AL East and have stayed under in 7 of their last 8 games played on Wednesday.

 

Prediction and Conclusion

The Boston Red Sox are picking up their form after a slow  couple of months. They still have a losing home record, and this may be the series in which they will reach.500 at Fenway Park. The Red Sox scored 11 runs in the first two innings last night, which was enough to win the game. Tonight, the Red Sox will start Nick Pivetta, who is 4-5 for the season with a 4.06 ERA, 78 K, 68.2 IP, and 1.14 WHIP. The Athletics will try to match that with JP Sears, who is 5-7 for the season with a 4.74 ERA, 68 K, 95 IP, and 1.27 WHIP. The Athletics have lost 14 of the last 15 games on the road, and Boston is not the place where they can win tonight.
