2018 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks
October 26, 2018
Boston at Los Angeles
Friday 10/26 08:09 PM Eastern
1 unit on Boston +1.5 runs -160 (runline) (risk 1 to return 1.63) RESULT: WIN
The World Series shifts to Los Angeles, but it won't make much difference as Boston is clearly the superior team in all facets of the game. Rick Porcello will appear to get the nod in Game 3 and he was 17-7 in the regular season, including a 10-3 road record and the Red Sox have won seven of his last eight starts overall. What's astonishing is the fact that Boston is 15-1 in Porcello's last 16 interleague starts and it has won his last four outings when he has had at least eight days of rest. Walker Buehler goes for the Dodgers and he has been shaky in the postseason, allowing 10 runs on 14 hits in 16 2/3 innings. He does have 22 strikeouts in that span, but the Red Sox are such a good two-strike hitting team that it won't matter much. The Dodgers have lost their last five games when following a day off and they have lost four of their last five World Series games as we remember the 2017 series against Houston. The Red Sox have won five playoff road games in a row and six playoff games in a row overall. The Dodgers are a prohibitive favorite, so go with the Red Sox on the runline.
