Analysis
My selection is on the 'over' between Boston and Kansas City at 8:10 pm et on Friday. For many of the same reasons we backed the ‘over’ in the opener of this series last night, we’ll go right back to the well with the same play on Friday. Rookie Josh Winckowski got off to a reasonably solid start for the Red Sox this season but the wheels have since come off. He checks in sporting a 5.09 FIP and 1.51 WHIP while allowing 5.2 runs per nine innings. Veteran Zack Greinke hasn’t been much better for the Royals. He owns a 4.47 FIP and 1.30 WHIP while giving up an average of 4.72 runs per nine innings. While the Red Sox bullpen has been serviceable lately, it’s by no means unbeatable having logged a 3.86 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with just 13 saves converted and 12 blown on the road this season (entering last night’s action). Meanwhile, the Royals bullpen owns a 4.59 ERA and 1.53 WHIP at home (also entering last night’s action). Take the over (8*).
