Red Sox Haven't Fared Well in California Recently

The Boston Red Sox are holding on to the division lead in the tough American League East and can separate themselves from the pack with a win over the Los Angeles Angels today. Sportsbooks opened the Halos as +122 home underdogs with a total of 9.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 4-1 in Boston’s last 5 games.
  • The UNDER is 15-5-2 in the Angels’ last 22 games.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in Rick Porcello’s last 5 road starts.

Rick Porcello and Parker Bridwell are scheduled to get the start for the Sox and Angels, respectively. Porcello (4-12, 4.60 ERA) leads the majors in losses but has fared better of late, allowing a total of two earned runs with no walks in his last 14 innings. The 2016 AL Cy Young winner has pitched at least six innings in each of his last 17 appearances, which is the longest active streak in the majors.

Bridwell (3-1, 3.18) has posted a 2.04 ERA in three road starts while registering a 4.09 ERA in four games at Angel Stadium. The rookie has reached the six-inning mark in each of his last four appearances.
