Los Angeles is 7-0 in their last game 3’s of a series and 8-3 in their last 11 games. The over is 3-1-1 in Los Angeles’ last 5 game 3’s of a series. Boston is 0-4 in their last 4 Thursday games and 3-8 in their last 11 games. The under is 5-0 in Boston’s last 5 Thursday games. The under is 3-1-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.
Both teams have won a game in this series and will be facing off for the rubber match on Thursday afternoon. Ohtani has had two solid starts in a row and has looked solid after his second start where he allowed 6 runs. Rich Hill hasn’t completed 5 innings this year, but hasn’t allowed a run in his last 8 innings pitched. Hill has been solid and I like Boston at plus money here.
