Tampa Bay is expected to treat this game as a bullpen game, so we should expect to see a handful of pitchers for the Rays. Boston comes into this game with one of their better pitchers on the mound. Whitlock has been very strong to open this season, but he shouldn’t be expected to throw many innings either. With both bullpens being heavily involved, it is tough to make a prediction on this game. To make matters worse, the lines have not yet been released for the game. I like the Red Sox to win this game on the road and the over is worth a look, as bullpen games can get very interesting.
