The Boston pitching staff has a 4.89 ERA, a 1.46 WHIP, and a .259 opponent batting average this season. The Red Sox offense has scored 59 runs with a .259 batting average and a .341 on base percentage. Adam Duvall is batting .455 with four home runs and 14 RBI’s for the Red Sox. The projected starting pitcher for Boston is Nick Pivetta, who is 0-1 with a 1.80 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP over 5.0 innings pitched this year.
The Tampa Bay Rays are 9-0 this season and are coming off of a series win against Oakland, where they out scored the Athletics by a total of 31-5 in the three wins. The Tampa Bay pitching staff has a 1.89 ERA, a 0.94 WHIP, and a .193 opponent batting average. The Rays offense has scored 75 runs with a .289 batting average and a .379 on base percentage this year.

Boston is 5-1 in their last 6 games following a win and they are 1-4 in their last 5 Monday games. The over is 6-1 in Boston’s last 7 game one’s of a series. Tampa Bay is 9-0 in their last 9 games and 6-2 in their last 8 game one’s of a series. The under is 9-1-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 11 Monday games. The under is 9-4-1 in these two teams last 14 head to head meetings in Tampa Bay.
Tampa Bay comes into this game undefeated and has been very good pitching and hitting so far this year. Boston swept Detroit rather easily in their last series and they scored 24 runs in the three games. I think we are going to see a higher scoring game here and I like the over, especially with how Fleming looked in his first outing.
