April 18th, 2013

Boston Red Sox vs. Cleveland Indians
Betting Prediction: Boston -128 odds (April 18th 2013)

The Boston Red Sox (10-4) are making a statement in the early going. They are showing everyone that they are back as an AL East contender after a disastrous 2012 campaign. Pitching has been a big reason for their resurgence, especially from ace Jon Lester.

The left-hander had his first bad season in 2012, but he has come back as strong as ever in 2013. Lester is 2-0 with a 1.42 ERA and 0.947 WHIP through three starts this season. He has allowed just 3 earned runs over 19 innings in victories over the Yankees, Blue Jays and Rays.

The Cleveland Indians (5-8) are in rebuilding mode once again this season. This is one team that Lester certainly loves facing. That’s evident by the fact that he is 5-1 with a 3.34 ERA and 1.191 WHIP in 11 career starts against Cleveland. Lester has only allowed one earned run over 19 innings in his last three starts against the Indians.

Boston is 9-1 (+8.8 Units) against the money line when the total is 7 to 8.5 this season. Cleveland is 8-27 (-16.0 Units) against the money line after batting .225 or worse over a 5 game span over the last 2 seasons. The Red Sox are 57-26 in Lester’s last 83 starts vs. a team with a losing record. The Indians are 2-7 in Zach McAllister’s last 9 starts as an underdog. Bet Boston Thursday.
