2 units on Boston -142 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: WIN

Dice-K has been the best pitcher in Boston this season, and the Red Sox are now 14-4 in his 18 starts. The Red Sox have had some road woes this season, but not when Dice-K is on the mound as they have been 6-2 in his eight road starts. Jose Contreras has lapsed back into the ill form he couldn't find his way out of last year. Contreras 6-3, 2.75 at the beginning of June and has been 1-3 with an ERA of 8.60 since covering seven starts. We saw him go into the same funk last year and he couldn't get out of it. The answer is not likely to be found against a good-hitting Red Sox team. The Red Sox get the call on the road.
