The Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox face off on Monday in an MLB showdown at Fenway Park. 

The Rays sit with a 43-36 record overall and they have won three straight games against the Toronto Blue Jays. On Sunday it was good pitching that was the difference as they were able to secure the 7-3 victory. Overall this season the Rays are giving up 3.87 runs per game which is 5th in the league. Randy Arozarena has been the top player hitting eight home runs and driving in 36 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Red Sox who sit with a 44-35 record overall but they lost two of their last three games against the Chicago Cubs. Over the last two games, the Red Sox have scored only five runs and they need the offense to get going in this game. The Red Sox are averaging 4.73 runs per game which is 8th best in the league.

On the mound for the Red Sox is Michael Wacha who sits with a 6-1 record and an ERA of 2.69. In his last start against the Toronto Blue Jays, he went five innings giving up seven hits and four runs. The Red Sox are going to need Wacha to have a better start in this game, and get back to his form from the beginning of the season.

The Red Sox are 4-0 in their last four home games. The Raysa re 1-5 in thier last six games on grass. The over is 4-0 in the Rays last four road games. The over is 4-0 in the Rays last four overall. The over is 4-0 in Rays last 4 road games vs. a right-handed starter. The over is 4-0 in the Rays last four road games against a right-handed starter. 

The trends with the Rays all point towards the over, and that is going to be what hits here. Wacha gave up four runs in his last start, and I don’t trust him to slow down the Rays offense. The Red Sox are averaging 4.73 runs per game and they are going to find offensive success again in this game. Back the over.
