Pick & Prediction: Boston Red Sox -1.5 (+110)

It’s difficult not to like Boston in this game, not only are they on a six-game winning streak, but they’re also sending Chris Sale to the mound. There isn’t a lot of value on the opening -196 moneyline, but betting them at +150 with a -1.5 spread provides more value.
