Boston is 13-3 in their last 16 games following a loss and 7-3 in their last 10 game two’s of a series. The over is 5-2-1 in Boston’s last 8 game two’s of a series. Chicago is 4-1 in their last 5 games and 16-35 in their last 51 home games. The over is 4-1 in Chicago’s last 5 games. The over is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Boston dropped Game 1 of this series on Friday afternoon, but has a good chance to bounce back here. The Red Sox will be facing Alex Mills, who has allowed 15 runs in his last three appearances. The Red Sox will start Josh Winckowski, who has allowed a total of eight runs across his four starts for Boston this season. I like Boston to bounce back here.
