Boston Red Sox        

The Red Sox enter tonight’s contest sporting a rather disappointing 1-4 record that ranks them 5th overall in the AL East. Entering tonight’s action riding a 3-game losing streak, it’s undoubtedly clear that Boston is down in the slumps. Coming off a season in which they won the World Series, it’s somewhat surprising to see Boston kick off the season in this manner. Nevertheless, tonight’s online MLB betting odds are still pegging Boston as the favorite. Do they know something we don’t know? Or are they just setting up a great upset pick for Oakland this evening?

Considering that Boston is sticking with Chris Sale this evening, who enters with a 0-1 record and a massive 21.0 ERA, it’s looking like the latter. All in all Boston is an extremely talented team. However, it’s obvious they’re struggling to get the formula down. Ultimately this clearly plays into Oakland’s hand tonight.

Players to Watch: Mookie Betts (1 HR, 1 RBI, .217 BA), JD Martinez (2 HR, 7 RBI, .381 BA), and Rafael Devers (0 HR, 0 RBI, .300 BA).

Oakland Athletics   

The Athletics are pumped after upsetting the reigning World Champions and are eager to drill in another upset this evening. All things considered, this game should end up going in Oakland’s direction. After all, they currently rank 4th in the league in runs and 11th in ERA. Comparatively the Red Sox rank 28th in their ERA but do come in at 8th for runs. Additionally, Boston will be playing on the road this evening. Accounting for all that, it does not look like the Red Sox will be coming out on top here.

Players to Watch: Jurickson Profar (0 HR, 0 RBI, .138 BA), Stephen Piscotty (1 HR, 4 RBI, .214 BA), and Khris Davis (5 HR, 9 RBI, .250 BA).
