Los Angeles is 4-1 in their last 5 Sunday games and 6-2 in their last 8 game three’s of a series. The over is 6-2 in Los Angeles’ last 8 Sunday games. Boston is 5-2 in their last 7 Sunday games and 2-4 in their last 6 games. The under is 7-3 in Boston’s last 10 games against the AL West. Los Angeles is 1-5 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.


Boston has been able to bounce back with two wins to start this series, after they were swept by the Rays in their last series. Los Angeles has had chances to win the past two games, but their pitching and fielding has let them down. The Red Sox are starting Garrett Whitlock, who really struggled in his first start of the year. Reid Detmers is starting for Los Angeles, who has allowed six earned runs over 9.2 innings pitched this year. I like the over in this game.
