Boston at New York
Saturday 08/29 04:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on New York -1.5 runs +115 (runline) (risk 1 to return 2.15) RESULT: LOSS
The New York Mets are closing in on a division title while the last-place Red Sox wind up a lost, disappointing campaign. Despite a surprise win yesterday the Red Sox are 6-13 in their last 19 road games. Red Sox starter Joe Kelly (5.18 ERA) has been up and down (mostly down) all year, especially on the road with a 5.20 ERA. The Red Sox are 0-5 in his last five starts vs. a team with a winning record. Boston is terrible defensively in the field and the relief staff is worse. They face a New York squad that has already established a club record with 43 home runs in August and set a franchise mark with a total of 73 runs over the final seven games of their road trip - all wins. The Mets are on an 8-2 run, with seven of those wins by 2 or more runs. In fact, 11 of their last 12 wins have been by more than two runs. Boston has not seen Mets starter Jacob deGrom (12-6, 2.29 ERA), who is 6-2 with a 1.46 ERA in 12 home starts this season. Take the NY Mets on the runline.
