Betting Odds: Guardians ML (+120) - Over/Under (9.5)

Pick: Guardians ML (+120)

The Cleveland Guardians and the Boston Red Sox will meet for the third game of their four game weekday series here on Wednesday night at Fenway Park. It’s been all Cleveland throughout the first two games of the series as they picked up a victory on Monday morning and Tuesday evening and they will look for a third consecutive victory over Boston here on Wednesday as well. This game could determine the outcome of the series as a Cleveland victory would clinch the series and a Boston victory would keep the hope for a four game series split alive for the Red Sox. This should be a solid game here on Wednesday night after the game went to extra innings on Tuesday.

Cleveland has been incredible throughout the early part of the regular season winning 12 out of their first 17 games of the year. They are currently the best team in baseball record wise and that is a surprise to many as a lot of people expected them to enter the first year of a rebuilding era. However, throughout the early part of the regular season they have clearly exceeded those expectations and they will look to keep the momentum, rolling with another much-needed victory here on Wednesday night against Boston on the road. 

It was a solid start to the game on Tuesday night for Cleveland as they jumped out to a 5-1 lead early on. Unfortunately, they were unable to hold that lead and they were forced to tie the top of the ninth inning and send it into extra innings to stay alive. In extra innings, they were able to put multiple runs on the board and they would get the job done with another 10 run performance to pick up their third consecutive victory. Now they will make it straight wins, and they will look for their consecutive victory against Boston to officially clinch the series before heading into Thursday finale.

The Boston Red Sox will be looking to pick up their first victory of the series here on Wednesday night after coming up short on Tuesday. This is the very same Boston team that looked completely out matched in the opening game of the series on Monday morning as they lost six to nothing to Cleveland. However, they erased a five to nothing deficit in their game on Tuesday night, and they looked like they were going to pick up the victory before they allowed Cleveland to tie the game. Boston was unable to get the job done in extra innings after tying the game in the 10th, unfortunately they would fall short later on in the night. 

Now they will look to put the last two games behind them and pick up a much-needed victory here in game number three of the series to keep the hope alive that they could get a four game split with Cleveland. This is a Boston team that came into the season with plenty of expectations, but you can argue that they’ve been rather underwhelming throughout the early part of the season. That is something they cannot afford to do in the American League East with how stacked it is this season. Every opportunity will add up throughout the year and they could be in danger of missing the playoffs by the summer if they continue with this pace. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Cleveland is 9-2 on the road 

- Cleveland is 2-0 against Boston 

- Boston is 2-6 at home 

I could easily see this game coming down to the final at bat in the ninth inning much like it did in the second game of the series on Tuesday night when it went into extra innings. But in the end, I look for a similar result, as I look for the Cleveland Guardians to grab their third consecutive victory of the series over the Boston Red Sox here on Wednesday evening. With the victory Cleveland would officially clinch the series against Boston heading into the fourth and final game on Thursday afternoon.
