Boston Red Sox -133
- At 10:10 pm, our selection is on the Boston Red Sox over the Seattle Mariners. The Red Sox were relying on Nathan Eovaldi earlier in the season and now with Chris Sale having tested positive for COVID, they really need the veteran righty to step up. This 2021 season just may have be Eovaldi's best since coming into the Majors as he was elected to his first-ever All Star game. But the 31-year-old is still not considered an MLB ace by almost any measurement. And that's probably just fine with with the hurler, as in 28 starts covering 163 2/3 innings, Eovaldi is 10-8 with a 3.57 ERA and 1.56 WHIP. Eovaldi's 1.6 walk rate is currently the best such number in the Majors. And the Red Sox are 4-0 in Eovaldi's last four starts on grass. The Mariners will go with LHP Tyler Anderson and the veteran southpaw is just 6-9 with a 4.20 ERA in 26 starts covering 148 innings between his old team -- the Pirates -- and the Mariners. Finally, the Red Sox are 12-7 in their last 19 as a road favorite of -125 or more. Take the Sox. As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
