Oakland at Boston

2 units on Oakland PICK runs -160 (runline) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: LOSS

Like the Yankees, the Red Sox are typically overpriced. But unlike the Yankees, the Red Sox have not won enough to cover that price as they are just 16-13 this season at home, sitting at negative units. Against the runline, it's even worse as they are 10-19 for -6.4 units. John Lackey has put up a very pedestrian 5.52 ERA at home this season. Gio Gonzalez has been better than that, posting a 4.23 road ERA. In his last three starts, he's averaged 7.1 innings and put together a great 2.53 ERA. Sure, the A's have batting problems but Boston is just 4-15 vs. the runline this season vs. AL teams hitting .255 or worse. I like Oakland to keep this close.
