The Lightning opened as a +130 road favorite, and the moneyline was -132. Since then, early bets have pushed this game much closer to a pick’em, with both teams currently at around -110. The teams have played 18 games this year and their score has been 10 or more in 12 of those games.

Notes On The Tampa Bay Rays

Shane McClanahan has been very good in his first major-league regular season. He is 9-5 with a 3.76 ERA in 21 starts and 3-3 with a 3.71 ERA when he pitches on the road. The Red Sox scored four runs on eight hits against McClanahan.

Last night, Wander Franco extended his streak of getting on base to 37 games. He is the youngest player in American League history to get on base for 37 straight games.

He is 21 years old. And he has 30 home runs in a season. This makes him the oldest person in Major League Baseball history to do this.

In 18 at-bats, Austin Meadows has hit .389 with one home run and three RBIs. The Rays are 13-3 in the last 16 games and 11-3 in their last 14 against Boston. The Rays have won seven consecutive road games.

Notes On The Boston Red Sox

The last time Nathan Eovaldi threw more than 68 innings in a season was back in 2016, before this year. Eovaldi is now 10-8 with a 3.73 ERA in 27 starts and has 156 innings on his career. Eovaldi has pitched against the Rays three times this season. He is 2-1. Last time, he only allowed one run in seven innings.

The Red Sox are winning only 43% of their games. They have lost 3 in a row. The Blue Jays are winning most of their games and they are just two games behind the Red Sox for the second wild-card spot.

Boston has 716 runs. They are tied with Tampa Bay and Houston for the most. In their last 10 games at Fenway Park, 9 games have gone over the total.

Online Sports Betting Pick & Prediction: OVER 9.5

The OVER is high when it opens at 9. I like it when the score is close to 10. This will be the fourth time we face Eovaldi this season. We know what he wants to do and we think that nine of the last 10 games at Fenway Park went OVER the total. So we think this game will also go OVER the total and you should take that bet too.
