Cleveland Guardians at Boston Red Sox Predictions & Tips

Boston are backed to avoid being swept in the final game of the series.

Ben Lively is the starter for Cleveland and he struggled on the road last season, while Tanner Houck has been a reliable starter for the Red Sox at home.

  • Ben Lively was 2-5 with a 5.90 ERA on the road last season
  • Tanner Houck is 2-1 with a 2.04 ERA so far this season
  • The Over has cashed in 5 of Cleveland's last 7 games

Head To Head

  • Cleveland Guardians lead the regular season series 2-0
  • Cleveland Guardians won 10-7 when the two teams last met on April 16

Cleveland Guardians Form

Cleveland came into this series having cooled off after a hot start to the season, but still boasting a strong record of 10-5.

The Guardians opened up the season with three consecutive wins in Oakland, but missed out on a series sweep as they dropped the final meeting.

They then rebounded from losing the series opener in Seattle with back-to-back wins over the Mariners, before winning back-to-back games in Minnesota.

Cleveland finally played their home-opening series after that and sandwiched a 7-5 loss to the Chicago White Sox with 4-0 and 7-6 victories.

The Guardians then avoided being swept by the New York Yankees as they responded to 3-2 and 8-2 defeats with a 7-6 win.

Boston Red Sox Form

Boston entered this series with Cleveland having snapped a four-game skid with back-to-back victories.

The Red Sox split the season-opening series in Seattle, before heading to Oakland to sweep the A’s over three games.

They then wrapped up their season-opening road trip with a couple of wins in Los Angeles, beating the Angels 8-6 and 12-2 either side of a 2-1 loss.

Boston failed to keep that good run going in their opening home series though, as they were swept by Baltimore, losing 7-1 7-5 and 9-4.

The Red Sox’s losing sequence hit four games with a 7-0 shutout loss to the Los Angeles Angels, but they finally stopped the rot last weekend with 7-2 and 5-4 wins to edge that series.


Tanner Houck is off to a strong start for Boston, while Ben Lively's road record dating back to last season is rough, so we like the Red Sox in this one.
