Boston at Philadelphia

1 unit on Boston -112 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.89) RESULT: WIN
Philadelphia is the biggest longshot to win the World Series in Vegas at 500-to-1. It's a weak all around team. Ace Cole Hamels goes here, but he is not suited for this park. Hamels had a 3.20 ERA here last year (as opposed to 1.82 on the road). He allowed 10 of his 14 homers in this park and is 2-6 in interleague games. The Boston Red Sox were actually very good at getting guys on base last season, but were anemic offensively because the clutch hitting was terrible with no one to drive them in. That's why they went wild this offseason bringing in veteran hitters who can put the ball in play. A rebuilt offense bolstered by the additions of left fielder Hanley Ramirez and third baseman Pablo Sandoval will boost an offensive attack that ranked near the bottom of the AL. Clay Buchholz had a fine spring striking out 22 batters with just four walks in 19 innings. Boston is 24-11 against Philadelphia since 2003, and the Red Sox are 11-3 in interleague games against a left-handed starter. Play Boston.
