Houston Astros vs. Boston Red Sox
Moneylines: Astros +105 / Red Sox -125
Total: 9.5 Runs
Framber Valdez, SP HOU – Valdez has not pitched well in the playoffs as he has scored fewer than 8.5 points on DK in both of his starts. He probably has the second longest leash on tonight’s slate behind Urias, but I still don’t see him pitching deep in this game at all.
Chris Sale, SP BOS – Sale has pitched a whopping total of 3.2 innings in his two playoff starts, scoring -6.8 and 3.8 points on DK, giving him an average in the negatives. The only thing to like about Sale is his strikeout upside. You can play him and hope he’s on top of his game, but regardless I don’t see him pitching very deep in this game.
