Score: 3 - 4
Total: -111/+9½ Under
8* Under Rangers/Red Sox (4:05 ET): Back to this matchup where we successfully cashed the Under on Monday. That Under cashed despite the game going 11 innings! Texas won 4-3 (beating Chris Sale) and even more surprising was them coming back and winning against yday, 9-5. After seemingly turning things around in May, the Red Sox have started to struggle again, dropping five of their last six games overall. They've been held to three runs or fewer four times during that stretch and never scored more than five in any game. Take the Under.
It may not be Sale, but Rick Porcello will have to do today for Boston. Porcello does have a decent 3.86 ERA in seven previous Fenway starts this year. He allowed four runs in six innings his last time out as the Red Sox lost 5-1 to Tampa Bay. He's facing a strong offense this afternoon (Rangers average 5.7 runs per game), but the Red Sox are 4-0 in Porcello's last four starts vs. Texas. The Under is also 16-5 in Boston's last 21 games vs. a team that has a winning record.
Lance Lynn gets the baseball Weds afternoon for the Rangers and he has some strong career numbers against the Red Sox. In six previous appearances, his ERA is 1.91. Lynn is currently working on a streak of six straight quality starts, five of which have stayed Under the total (including each of the last four). The Under is actually 6-1 following the L7 times Texas has scored 5+ runs in a game. It's 8-2 following the L10 times they've given up 5+ runs in the last game. I think this is set to be a lot more like Monday's game. The Rangers were a little lucky to score nine runs yesterday as they had just nine hits, one of which was an inside the park HR. 8* Under Rangers/Red Sox
