Oakland A’s Fantasy Spin

Robbie Grossman popped a solo home run for the Athletics' lone run versus the Red Sox on Tuesday. The A's couldn't solve Rick Porcello, who spun eight scoreless frames, but Grossman led off the ninth inning with a solo blast off of Tyler Thornburg. Unfortunately for Oakland, they weren't able to mount much of a rally after that. The dinger was Grossman's third of the season.

Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin

Mookie Betts slugged his sixth home run and added a single Tuesday against the Athletics. Betts' blast in the first inning off of Aaron Brooks went over the center field wall just to the right of the Green Monster. He now has eight multi-hit games over his last 11 efforts and has raised his OPS from .676 to .921. You weren't worried, were you?

MLB Betting Trends


The A’s are 7-3 in their last 10 games against the Red Sox.


The Red Sox are 46-19 in their last 65 games versus the A’s at Fenway Park.


Hector Velazquez will start today’s game for Boston as Nathan Eovaldi remains out with an elbow injury. Velazquez wasn’t sharp in his last start, allowing three runs over just 3 1/3 innings versus the Tigers. That said, the A’s have received terrible pitching in this series and that doesn’t figure to change on Wednesday when Mike Fiers takes the hill. Fiers had a tough Opening Day start, then compiled two strong outings before running into trouble in his next three outings. He is coming off a season-high seven-inning outings versus the Blue Jays but he’s also allowing 1.97 HR/9. Boston’s lineup should tee off on Fiers and finish off the sweep of Oakland.

The Pick: Boston Red Sox -1.5 (+135)
