Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #971 Thursday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Boston Red Sox vs Minnesota Twins @ 7:10 ET - This total opened up as high as a 12.5 and of course the betting markets are saying how "wrong" the odds makers are and the total has been pounded down to an 11.5 as of very early Thursday morning. Of course long-time followers know how I feel about this and, in typical contrarian fashion, I am fading the line move here and going with the over. I lost with this play last night in large part because the Twins left 10 men on base, hit into 3 double plays, and went 0 for 4 with runners in scoring position. I look for Minnesota to make up for that Thursday. I know Nathan Eovaldi is off a strong start but I am not going to put too much stock into just one start. The Red Sox right-hander has been pounded at a .323 clip and compiled an 8.44 ERA in his 9 games (2 starts) at Fenway Park this season. As for the Twins starter, Martin Perez, he has been on the fade for quite awhile now. He is 2-5 in his last 16 starts and Perez has compiled a 6.24 ERA in these 16 starts. That doesn't bode well for the lefty now facing a potent Red Sox lineup at hitter-friendly Fenway Park. The over is 8-2 in the last 10 starts Perez has made. The over is 35-16 this season when the Red Sox are a favorite in a price range of -100 to -150. This game falls within that range as of early Thursday morning. 10* OVER the total in Boston
