Cleveland Indians vs Boston Red Sox Prediction:

Rain out on Sunday has made this one a little different. Who does the extra day off help? I always think it helps the team with lesser pitching depth. It also takes away from the momentum of the hot team. In both cases, I think the day off helped the Red Sox. Taking the Red Sox on the money line…of course if the starting pitchers change the no bet. This is a tip for sports gamblers. Always list the pitchers on your bet in case one of them is a scratch then there is no bet.

Indians vs Red Sox Pick: Boston on the money line

This will be the most watched game of the day. The Cubs vs the even year Giants. The Giants have cost me some money so far in the playoffs. They come home and there are a few trends I like today. The Cubs are 2-5 in their last 7 games vs. a left-handed starter. When Bumgarners starts at home the Giants are 14-3 in his last 17 home starts vs. a team with a winning record. The guy is just money. Not that he needed any help but, the home team is 10-1 in Vanovers last 11 games behind home plate. Yep, the ump is a homer.
