Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox Prediction

In Monday’s matchup between Baltimore and Boston, I see the Red Sox picking up another decisive win. Although Tanner Houck has primarily been used out of the bullpen, he has given up just 1 run over his past 4 outings. On the other side, Tyler Wells has made it out of the 5th inning just once this season. I like Boston on the runline.
