Boston is 7-0 in their last 7 games against the AL West and 4-1 in their last 5 road games. The over is 8-2-2 in Boston’s last 12 games following a win. Oakland is 1-4 in their last 5 Sunday games and 10-26 in their last 36 games. The under is 19-7-1 in Oakland’s last 27 Sunday games. Boston is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

There haven’t been many bright spots for Oakland this season, but Frankie Montas has been one of them. Montas has only allowed five runs over his last four starts and has a WHIP below 1.00. For the Red Sox, they are starting Rich Hill, who has been up and down all season and is coming off of an outing where he allowed six runs over four innings pitched. I like Oakland to win this game and avoid the sweep.
