Red Sox By The Numbers: Stranger Danger




Opening Day was not kind to the Red Sox but baseball is an every day sport and this is a very good thing for the Red Sox as they are back in action tonight and once again they are favored.

The Red Sox will throw Nathan Eovaldi and the Mariners will counter with Yusei Kikuchi. The Red Sox are -137 favorites on the moneyline and +120 on the runline 1.5 runs. The over/under for the game is 8

If you bet $100 on the Red Sox on every game so far this season (we know they have only played once) you would down $100 when picking the Sox to win outright and down another $100 on the runline. We will keep that running tab for you all season long.

Yesterday we told you to stay away from the game in terms of better. We will never advise you to bet against the Red Sox, we will only advise you when to bet on them. This is another game where think you should stay away.

Eovaldi has faced 8 guys on the current Mariners roster with Jay Bruce leading the way with 10 plate appearances. Bruce is the only one on the Mariners with a homer against Eovaldi. Tim Beckham, who was the star last night, has hit Eovaldi the best with 3 hits in 7 plate appearances and only striking out once. Yusei Kikuchi. has never faced the Red Sox or anyone on their roster. Does that advantage go to the pitcher or hitter? We will have to see but most hitters prefer a pitcher they have seen before. Tonight could be a challenging night for the Red Sox offense.


On this date in 2002 Rickey Henderson is added to the Boston Red Sox Opening Day roster as his contract is purchased from Triple-A Pawtucket. Henderson, who joined the exclusive 3000 hit club on the final day of last season, will begin his 24th year in the majors appearing with his eighth different club.


Best Bets:

We went 2-0 on our Best Bets yesterday and if you bet $100 on both you would be up $230 right now. We have three best bets tonight.

The Dodgers hit 8 homers yesterday and they are bound to come back down to earth today. Robbie Ray gets the start for the Diamondbacks and he has done well against the majority of their lineup. Ross Stripling goes for the Dodgers and the Diamondbacks roster has hit him pretty good especially David Peralta. The Diamondbacks are big underdogs which really excites us. Take the Diamondbacks on the moneyline at +155 

The Marlins are horrible and the Rockies are underrated. Trevor Richards gets the ball for the Marlins and Daniel Murphy, Mark Reynolds and Trevor Story have hit him hard. The Rockies are favored of course so take them on the runline at +110 -1.5 

Charlie Morton faces his old team tonight as the Rays host the Astros. Gerrit Cole gets the ball but he has been hit hard by some of the Rays in particular Tommy Pham. The Rays are underdogs tonight. We like them to win. Take the Rays on the moneyline at +130
