Rangers-Red Sox at Fenway Park on Thursday

Red Sox Baseball

Red Sox in Need of Winning Streak

The Boston Red Sox had designs on winning another World Series this year. They’re still among the top contenders at +800 on the MLB futures market, but the Red Sox have started off slowly at 24-21, shedding 3.32 betting units in the process. They’ll host the Texas Rangers (24-23, -1.80 units) this week for a three-game set at Fenway Park, with Thursday’s finale beginning at 7:10 PM ET on NESN and the MLB Network.

The Rangers (+2500 to win the World Series) didn’t have a good start to the 2017 campaign, either, but they’ve taken advantage of a soft schedule to win 11 of their last 12 games. Texas swept both the Oakland Athletics and the Philadelphia Phillies, and took three of four from the San Diego Padres; all those opponents are below .500. Boston has had the more difficult schedule so far this season. The Red Sox dropped three of four in Oakland before coming home to face the Rangers.

Drew Pomeranz (4.33 FIP) is scheduled to start for Boston against right-hander Nick Martinez (5.22 FIP). The Red Sox are 4-4 behind the left-handed Pomeranz for a loss of 1.11 units. Texas is 3-3 and +0.45 units with Martinez on the mound.
