Texas Rangers (43-80) @ Boston Red Sox (70-55)
Boston coming out as a heavy favorite (-335 on DK). Let's look at Pitchers.
We've got Allard on the mound for the Rangers with a 4.88 ERA, WHIP of 1.19, 79 strikeouts and 94 hits. Allard has pitched 94 innings.
Eovaldi is pitching for the Red Sox. His ERA is 3.91, WHIP is 1.20, 140 strikeouts and 140 hits in 138 innings pitched.
Examining the batting leaders for both teams, we have Garcia for the Rangers with 27 HR's, .248 average and 71 RBI's vs. Boston's Devers' 29 HR's, .275 average and 89 RBI's.
Best batting average goes to Boston's Bogaerts with a .308 and .377 on base percentage while Rangers Kiner-Falefa trails with a .263 average and .298 on base percentage.
Of course, Garcia and Devers both lead their teams respectively for Runs Batted In.
Anyways, Rangers away record is 15-46 while Boston's home record is 38-25 BUT Rangers underdog performance is 47-56 while Red Sox' favorite record is 29-43.
All of that being said, I still think we take the Red Sox here but due to the juice, many will be looking to parlay them. BE CAREFUL with this slate today if that is the route you want to take. Glancing through some books, you can grab Red Sox F5 and ML at -165. Red Sox 1.5 F5 is still at -140ish it seems but I would be careful. Let us know what your are taking and let's have a day!
Hopefully I can examine another game before this afternoon. The Fellas Show starts soon so go get ready.
