Boston is 5-0 in their last 5 Sunday games and 11-2 in their last 13 road games. The over is 3-1-1 in Boston’s last 5 Sunday games. Cleveland is 17-7 in their last 24 games and 8-4 in their last 12 home games. The under is 8-2 in Cleveland’s last 10 game three’s of a series. Boston is 8-2 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.

This pitching matchup is definitely far from ideal, but it should provide for an entertaining game. Rich Hill hasn’t allowed a ton of runs, but fails to pitch very deep into games. For the Guardians, Civale has started the season very poorly, but has been better in his last two starts. Neither pitcher has impressed me, but I have to give the Guardians the edge in this matchup.
