Boston at Philadelphia

Wednesday 04/08 07:05 PM Eastern

1 unit on Philadelphia +135 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.35)  RESULT: WIN

There's a lot of focus and pressure on Red Sox righty Rick Porcello. He makes his Boston debut and signed a four-year contract extension Monday, which begins in 2016 and is worth a $82.5 million. He's not an ace, but is getting paid like one. Porcello also has a 4.49 ERA in 24 interleague outings. The Red Sox are 1-5 as a favorite and 8-17 during game two of a series. Boston is without the DH as Philadelphia is home. The Phillies are 5-2 in their last seven interleague home games and are a strong bounce-back team at 9-3 when their opponent scores 5 runs or more in their previous game. Umpire Phil Cuzzi is behind the plate and the home team is 12-4 with him there, the Phillies are 14-5 with Cuzzi calling pitches, while the Red Sox are 3-13 with Cuzzi behind home plate. Take Philadelphia.
