According to the latest MLB trends, the Red Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30, 7-1 in Lester's last 8 starts as an underdog, 5-1 in Lester’s last 6 road starts and are 8-3 in Lester's last 11 road starts vs. a team with a winning record. Angels are 4-9 in their last 13 Thursday games,2-7 in their last 9 during game 3 of a series and 0-5 in their last 5 home games vs. a left-handed starter. Boston is a big dog with Lester on the mound. You get pretty good value in that case. Lester is 3-0 with a 2.25 ERA in his last three starts. Zack Greinke is 2-1 with a 4.79 ERA in his last three starts and brings an overall ERA of 5.22 in the American League. Boston should steal a win here with their best pitcher on the mound.
