OffshoreInsiders.com Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has free pick Saturday is on the Red Sox (-1.5 +115) on the runline to Milwaukee.
Reasoning: Randy Wolf has been very good, especially in that last start against the Cubs and the Brewers are a dangerous and hard-hitting club that can bash away. With that said though the Red Sox have been ungodly of late and with a stud in Jon Lester on the bump I just don’t give Milwaukee much of a chance today.
Wolf is an experienced veteran who has been there and done that. The lefty could hold his own but he is up against a ferocious lineup that just keeps on destroying pitcher after pitcher and I can’t help but back Terry Francona’s sizzling squad today at Fenway Park assuming that nothing changes. Gonzalez is the MVP to this point and Crawford, Pedroia, Ortiz, Youkilis and Ellsbury form by far the best offense in the game today and to be honest it’s not even all that close. Take out that horrific first week to the season and Boston would be heads and shoulders above everybody else. Plus the Sox have gotten next to nothing out of two key starters in Lackey and Dice-k.
Lester is a stud that can hurl a complete game shutout anytime he takes the mound. The guy has beaten Cancer and won pressure packed World Series clinching games so I have no qualms whatsoever about him here against very good hitters, if not great, in Braun, Fielder and Weeks. Milwaukee always has a chance to put up a crooked number or two with their bashers but in the end I still see this game as a mismatch and the way the Sox have been rolling I’ll continue to ride that train here.
