Money Line: -144 Boston

Sportsbook: Pinnacle

Result: Loss

Today's winner is Boston over Chicago. This is my High Roller Play.

Boston is riding a 5-game streak due to both solid pitching and a recent explosion from Pedroia and Ortiz. The Red Sox are tied for the best road record in base ball at 14-7 away from home. In the L10 meetings in this series, Boston has owned Chicago, winning 8 of the 10. The Red Sox lineup ranks in the Top-10 in every offensive category. Homers, Base-Hits, Walks, moving the runners by sacrificing, and SBs, this team can do it all. Jon Lester brings a 6-0, 2.72 record into Chicago. The LH has allowed 2 or less runs in six of his nine starts. The White Sox lost their L2 and are just 8-9 at home. The team posts 3.69 RPG. Inconsistency has been an issue all season. Dylan Axelrod is 1-3 with a 4.27 ERA, yielding 24 hits in 19 IP just in his L3 outings. The Red Sox are 19-7 their L26 games vs. teams with a losing record, 7-2 in Lesters L9 starts, and 5-1 their L6 games played in Chicago. The White Sox are 13-28 their L41 games played as a 'dog, 1-4 in Axelrods L5 home starts, and 4-10 their L14 games vs. LH starters. Take Boston. Thank you.
