San Francisco Giants vs Boston Red Sox Prediction

Boston was able to scratch out four runs in game one of this series and they defeated Logan Webb, who had been very hot. The Red Sox come into this game with the pitching advantage, as Kutter Crawford has been very good. San Francisco is hoping Jefferies can bounce back after that disaster in his last outing, but I just can’t take the Giants with him on the mound. My San Francisco Giants vs Boston Red Sox prediction is a Red Sox win at home.
