Boston is 11-3 in their last 14 games against the AL Central and 4-8 in their last 12 road games. The under is 4-2 in Boston’s last 6 games. Kansas City is 3-9 in their last 12 games and 1-5 in their last 6 Saturday games. The over is 7-2 in Kansas City’s last 9 games. Boston is 17-5 in these two teams last 22 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams have won one game in this series and will look to take the series lead in this matchup. Boston comes into this matchup winning four out of their last six, while Kansas City has lost three out of their last four. Boston is starting Nathan Eovaldi, who has allowed 13 runs in his last 15 innings pitched. For Kansas City, Daniel Lynch has allowed five earned runs over his last 13 innings of work. I am leaning towards Kansas City in this matchup as the home dog with Lynch on the mound.
