Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox Prediction

Heading into today’s AL East showdown between Baltimore and Boston, I recommend taking the Red Sox to pick up the win. Boston has won 3 straight games with Nick Pivetta on the mound. And although Bruce Zimmerman still has a respectable ERA of 3.78, this has spiked after two straight poor outings. I like the Red Sox on the moneyline.
