Free Pick on Boston Red Sox

Tampa Bay vs. Boston, 07/23/2013 19:10
Money Line: -140 Boston

Roberto Hernandez is just 1-6 on the road this season and he has a 5.74 ERA. In his eight road games he has allowed 9 home runs and 30 earned runs. Those are not numbers you want to see from your starting pitcher before facing an offense like Boston's. The Red Sox have a .290 batting average at home this season and they are scoring 5.2 runs per game.

Tampa Bay's offense has struggled on the road with a .258 batting average, a number substantially lower than Boston's. They also have to face Red Sox ace Jon Lester. In his seven home starts this year the Red Sox are 7-0 and Lester has a 2.96 ERA. The Red Sox should have no problems getting off to an early lead against Hernandez and I don't think they will ever look back once they do.
