Boston Red Sox
After the regular season and playoffs they have had we should not be surprised by Boston’s performance in the playoffs. They are up 2-0 as they head to Los Angeles and this team has to be brimming with confidence as some potential negatives (like David Price in the playoffs) are proving to be strengths.
I wouldn’t say the series is over just yet but we might be done before next week the way things are going. Over the last couple of games and throughout the playoffs Boston has been able to get the big timely hit, while their opponents haven’t. That might be simplistic but it is the biggest difference maker.
They are making team’s pay for not coming through in the clutch.
Rick Porcello is always a conundrum for me. He is certainly better than average but his time in Boston has been mixed, at the high point he has collected a Cy Young and at the low his contract has looked like a terrible investment.
In these playoffs he has been nothing special with hit and homers allowed rated higher than the regular season.
Throughout his career he has not been a real playoff contributor. Backing up a strong performance by Price the Boston bullpen did not yield even a hit over three innings in game two.
With the day off in between games there is no reason to the same trio and others won’t be available.
The Dodgers have taken a big punch from Boston so now the question is whether they are able to get off the mat. I don’t want to say they were embarrassed by Boston but at the same time I am not seeing what transpired in game one or two that makes them things are going to turn around just because they are at home.
I am not sure there is a big NL advantage either because Boston is confident in their lineup and pitching and I don’t see them getting all cute and matchey matchey.
The Dodgers should be able to get their power in early in this one and at some point they have to try and dictate some matchup and trust their guys. Cody Bellinger was the NLCS MVP and he didn’t even start the last game.
Walker Buehler is the guy everyone thinks will take the mantle from Clayton Kershaw. It is easy to see why but at the same time, he has also struggled in the playoffs.
Love the 22/4 ratio but he is giving up more hits and homers than in the regular season and is definitely no Madison Bumgarner in terms of exploding on the scene in the playoffs.
The bullpen was mostly solid for LA in game four. Madson was brought in to the game in a do or die spot and couldn’t get the out they needed. Those were inherited runners though.
He has been very good in the playoffs as have most of the bullpen.

This is an interesting spot with the Dodgers on the ropes. If you were hot on Boston preseries I suggest you keep investing on the moneyline. +135 is not bad.
4* Free World Series Game 3 Betting Pick: Boston ML
This series very much feels like a sweep. I wouldn’t have bet that before it started but taking Boston on the ML in this one and then again if they win could yield a nice payoff.
