If the pitching rotations stay the same it would be Matt Garza against Josh Beckett. Regardless, the Red Sox will be favored in MLB betting odds at home.
MLB odds may have the Red Sox favored in this game but the trends are with Tampa Bay. The Rays have won 13 of the last 20 games between the two teams. That was before this MLB odds series began on Friday. They were 6-4 against the MLB betting odds in the last 10 at Boston. The teams played early in April at Fenway Park and the Rays took two of three versus MLB odds. For some reason the Rays matchup very well with the Red Sox.
There is not much to go on with MLB odds totals trends as before this series began the over/under was 10-10 in the last 20 games and 5-5 in the last 10 at Boston. In April two of the three games at Boston went under the MLB odds total although each game could have gone either way as they were 4-3, 7-2 and 5-3 finals.
Tampa has started slowly this season versus the MLB betting odds but the Rays should get things turned around. The pitching staff is loaded with James Shields, Scott Kazmir and Garza. The fourth spot has been troublesome so far this season for the Rays but they should get it settled soon. The offense also started slowly but is coming around as well. With Evan Longoria, Carlos Pena and Carl Crawford, the Rays have some definite ability on offense that can impact MLB odds.
Boston has done almost all of their damage versus the MLB odds at home this season. What should be remembered though is that two of their losses did come against the Rays back in April. Boston has been winning with offense as they are in the Top 10 in runs scored as MLB odds stats show. The pitching has been spotty so far for the Red Sox as MLB betting odds stats indicate but they still have Beckett at the top of the rotation.
