Boston Red Sox DFS SPIN
Enrique Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI on Saturday in an extra-innings loss to the Athletics. Hernandez also drew two walks, so a four-reach game for the ever-so-versatile infielder/outfielder. Speaking of versatility, he played second base and center in this contest. The homer is the 10th of the year for Hernandez, and he's been much better than his .241/.313/.435 slash suggests over the last couple of weeks.
Oakland A’s DFS Spin
Matt Chapman went 3-for-5 and scored a run on Saturday in the Athletics' extra-inning win over the Red Sox. He also came around to score a run. Chapman has been swinging the bat a bit better as of late, but this broke a three-game hitless streak. His .229 average and .726 OPS are significant disappointments from a fantasy perspective.
Red Sox vs. A’s Betting Prediction
The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last nine games overall, are 4-1 in their last five games following a loss and are 6-2 in their last eight games as a road underdog. The A’s, meanwhile, are winless in their last five games coming off a win, are 1-6 in their last seven games versus a right-handed starter and are 2-5 in their last seven games overall.
