3 units on Boston -110 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: LOSS

Jon Lester continues to impress and as the season winds on he seems to mature and get better with every start, as evidenced by the BoSox 10-1 record over his last 11 starts. Those 11 starts show nine games in which the opponent did not score more than three runs for the game, so it certainly puts the Sox in strong position to find the win column. Mark Buerhle has not been impressive this season. Even less so lately as he carries a 7.02 ERA over his last three starts into this one and the White Sox are just 10-13 in his 23 starts this season. The Red Sox have also done damage against LHP where they stand at 17-8 on the season, and we will back them on the road in this one.
