The Boston Red Sox host the Detroit Tigers on Thursday in the last game of their series from Fenway. All MLB odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Tigers are still in third place in the AL Central after losing 6-4 to Boston on Wednesday. They are four game below .500 and it may be time for concern in the Motor City. They are on the verge of being swept in Boston as neither phase of their game is playing particularly well. They will send Max Scherzer to the hill today and the righty will try and serve as the stopper for the club. He has won 3 of his last 4 decisions and has actually had an impressive 24 strikeouts in his last 12 plus innings pitched.
Boston on the other hand has been hot and cold all season and they are currently riding one of their hot streaks. The only question that remains is if they will be able to avoid another lengthy losing streak so they can begin to make up ground in the division. Jon Lester had an OK outing, but was bailed out in a big way by his offense who blasted three home runs in route to the win. The Sox will go for the sweep tonight behind Josh Beckett. Beckett has three good outings in a row under his belt heading into tonight and he will look to build on that even further.
We really like how Beckett has been pitching and the Red Sox hitters have torched Scherzer so the best MLB betting pick in this one is playing on the Boston Red Sox at the sportsbook.
