Red Sox vs Nationals Free Pick July 2, 2018

Mike Lundin’s Red Sox vs Nationals Free Pick

Play on: Red Sox ML (+160)

Start Time: July 02 2018, 7:05 PM

The oddsmakers have Boston way, way underrated here in the opener of a three-game series at Washington, and I think it’s well worth to take a stab on the visitors.

Washington right-hander Max Scherzer (10-4, 2.04 ERA) is having an outstanding year and is a top Cy Young Award contender, but note that he’s 4-4 with a 6.04 ERA in 10 career starts against the Red Sox.

Rick Porcello (9-3, 3.60 ERA) will take the ball for the Red Sox and he’s 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA in his lone start against Washington, an eight-inning effort in April of 2015. He’s cooled off since going 5-0 with a 2.14 ERA in his first seven turns of the season but is still 5-1 behind a 3.42 ERA in nine starts on the road.

The Nationals have been shut out in three of Scherzer’s last four starts. They’re 1-7 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series and 2-7 in their last 9 interleague games. Red Sox are 11-1 in Porcello’s last 12 interleague starts and 41-12 in their last 53 interleague games vs. a right-handed starter.

Free pick on Boston Red Sox.
