Guardians vs Red Sox Prediction


Our recommendation for today’s Guardians vs. Red Sox matchup is to take the Red Sox on the money line at -135. We actually have the Red Sox winning this one by a score of 6-5, so you could also look to take the over, as the line is currently sitting at 9.5 runs.

If you’re looking for a starting pitcher to have a big day, Kutter Crawford is not someone we would recommend. We have him finishing with just four strikeouts, which would put him near the bottom of the league in terms of starting pitchers.
