Money Line: -130.00 Boston (Away)
are now 17-8 vs Lefties including 9-3 on the road.
Boston 11-3 in Pivetta’s last 18 starts and KC is one of the worst offensive teams in the league and the Boston batters are averaging .270 against southpaws and score 5.31 runs per nine innings. The Royals, on the other hand, are not great against righties, averaging just 3.81 runs per game.
The Royals are 9-27 vs winning teams as pick or dog.
KC even worse 3-11 at home vs winning teams as pick/dog.
Royals have scored just 10 runs in their last 7 losses.
The Red Sox know they must win these games vs weak opponents, especially considering they will face the Braves and Yankees next week. I am backing the visitors to get a win here on Thursday night.
