Milwaukee Brewers vs Boston Red Sox Prediction

Colin Rea has been hittable all season, especially on the road, where he's allowing nearly a .300 batting average. Nick Pivetta has been up and down through 26.2 innings, but we know what he's capable of when he's right and has consistent reps, and that's a guy with nasty stuff who racks up the strikeouts. The Boston Red Sox should like their chances to put up healthy numbers offensively while Pivetta continues to get his feet wet and look more confident on the mound. This feels like a Red Sox win. The price is reasonable. Give me the Red Sox to win game 2 on Saturday against the Brewers.
