Money Line: -131 Boston
This is a 10* ASSASSIN on the Boston Red Sox.
The visitors hand the ball to Dan Straily (0-0, 0.00 ERA) who has been called up from Triple-A to make this start; Straily last pitched in the major leagues in 2014 and was a poor 6-6 with a pedestrian 4.06 ERA in 77 2/3's innings in Fresno this season. The home side counters with Justin Masterson (3-2, 5.58 ERA) who dominated the Rays on Sunday, going five innings and giving up five hits while striking out six. Masterson is replacing Joe Kelly in the rotation and I think this matchup is definitely working in his favor, there's no question that this is a tough spot to throw Straily into, in my opinion this is indeed the very definition of "great line value;" lay the price with confidence on the RED SOX.
