Boston Red Sox vs Cleveland Guardians prediction

This is a bullpen game for the Red Sox with Chase Anderson taking the mound, and I hate bullpen games because there are so many arms you have to rely on to get you to the finish line. Triston McKenzie is still trying to find himself as he works his way back from injury, but he's shown flashes through 4 starts. Quick turnaround usually favors the home team. The Guardians have also been one of the best teams in baseball all season. It's hard for me to bet against the Guardians in this early Thursday afternoon game. Give me the home team to get the job done.
