Sale Gives the BoSox a Betting Boost in Series Finale

Buck Showalter’s Orioles will look to avoid being swept at home tonight when they host the Red Sox but with Chris Sale taking the hill for the AL East leaders, their prospects of winning are slimmer than Boston’s Cy Young candidate.

  • The visiting team is 7-0 SU and ATS in its last 7 games in this matchup.
  • The Orioles are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games when closing out a series.
  • The Red Sox are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games on the road with Chris Sale as the starting pitcher.

While Sale has had a few rough starts of late, he’s 2-0 with a 3.21 ERA in two starts against the orange birds of Baltimore this season. Over the last three years, Sale actually owns a 2.16 ERA against the club he’ll face tonight and O’s current batters have a combined .213 average versus the Slim Reaper.

Wade Miley (8-13, 5.32 ERA), on the other hand, is coming off an implosion against the Yankees and he’s allowed a home run in four of his last five starts. His team is imploding down the stretch as well, losing 11 of its last 13 games.

Take the Red Sox on the runline tonight if you know what’s good for you.
