    The long dormant Red Sox are legitimately showing signs of life.  They’ve won three out of four, including the first two games of this series by a combined margin of 19-4.  Manager Alex Cora, following Thursday’s win, BEFORE to yesterday’s big blowout: “Yesterday was a great day. You felt the energy today the whole day. That's how it starts."

    The Angels are trending in the opposite direction, losers of eight straight games, with an ice cold lineup that hasn’t scored more than four runs in any of those eight defeats.  Yesterday, Albert Pujols hit a three run homer in the first inning.  LA’s offense was held to one hit over the final eight innings.  Embattled manager Brad Ausmus: “It's an embarrassing loss, quite frankly.  We didn't pitch. We didn't hit, other than Albert's homer in the first. We really haven't done much of either the past week. That's what happens when you have losing streaks, when you're not hitting or pitching.”

    After a series of rough showings (hence the cheap price to support the Red Sox today), Rick Porcello finally threw a gem last time out, holding the Royals to a single run on four hits.  Behind him, the Red Sox bullpen has every key arm rested and ready for today.  LA hurler Andrew Heaney is making his first start off the DL, and he got blasted in his most recent meeting against Boston: six runs in 3.1 innings of work. 

    The best way to approach today’s game, in this bettor’s opinion, is to go for the ‘plus price’ return on investment here with a Run Line play.  LA isn’t hitting, the Red Sox pen is rested and ready, and all eight meetings between these two teams since the start of 2018 have been Red Sox wins by multi-run margins.  Take the Red Sox on the Run Line.

    Line Parameter: 3% at -1.5 (+111) or higher, 2% at -1.5 (+110) or lower
