Boston is 5-3 in their last 8 games against the AL East and 3-10 in their last 13 road games. The over is 8-4 in Boston’s last 12 road games. Tampa Bay is 10-0 in their last 10 games and 7-3 in their last 10 Tuesday games. The over is 4-2 in Tampa Bay’s last 6 home games. The under is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.


Tampa Bay has started the season with ten straight wins and is on a very impressive three game shutout streak. Boston dominated Detroit in their last series, but will face a very tough Shane McClanahan in this matchup. McClanahan has allowed two earned runs over 12 innings pitched this year and has 12 strikeouts on the year. I like the under in this game once again.
