Sale Makes BoSox a Chalky Pick on the Road

With their losing streak now at four after last night’s extra-innings loss, the Red Sox have absolutely squandered their opportunity to take a big lead over the Yankees in the AL East and they’re now up by just one game. The BoSox will look to change their fortunes this afternoon when they hand the keys over to their all-star ace Chris Sale (12-4, 2.48 ERA).

SHARK BITES
  • The Mariners are 5-12 SU and on the runline in their last 17 games at home.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Red Sox' last 7 games on the West Coast.
  • The total has gone OVER in 9 of the Mariners' last 11 games against lefty starting pitchers.

Speaking of Sale, he’s been nearly unhittable since the break, allowing no runs in 13.2 innings of work in his two starts that have come after the Midsummer Classic. He’s been a little worse on the road but I don’t think anyone’s complaining about his 2.84 ERA away from Fenway.

Andrew Moore (1-2, 5.70 ERA) will toe the other side of the rubber for the Mariners attempting to curb the trend that’s seen him give up five earned runs in two straight trips to the bump.

A win would be Boston’s first since the last time Sale pitched and would cash a chalky -210 opening moneyline for bettors of the Crimson Hose.
