- Sean Zerillo's MLB model helps you find edges when betting moneylines and over/unders for the full game and first five (F5) innings.
- He analyzes Wednesday's slate of games, including how to bet the San Francisco Giants at Boston Red Sox (7:10 p.m. ET).
- Plug in your odds to the spreadsheet at the bottom of this article to see where you might have an edge.
At 79-71, the Boston Red Sox are all but officially eliminated from the 2019 MLB playoffs.
At this point, they would basically need to win out, and either the Indians or Rays would need to lose out in order for the Red Sox to make the Wild Card.
Without Chris Sale and David Price, the Red Sox have resorted to a spring training style pitching staff on any given day – trotting out a starter for three or four innings before giving way to the bullpen.
With a 4-6 record in their last 10 games, are the Red Sox still playing to make the playoffs, no matter how minuscule their chances, or are they packing it in for 2002?
