The Boston Red Sox will head on the road for a three-game series with the Kansas City Royals on Friday, June 18th. Boston has one of the best records in the league at 42-27, but the Red Sox are a half-game behind the Tampa Bay Rays for the top spot in the American League West. Meanwhile, the Royals are in third place in the AL Central at 30-37, 12 games behind the Chicago White Sox at the top of the division.
Moneyline pick: Red Sox (-167)
The Red Sox enter this game winners of three straight while the Royals are on a six-game slide. Nick Pivetta has been a little off with a 4.28 ERA, but is 6-2 on the year and should get run support again in this game.
Player Prop: Rafael Devers over 0.5 RBI (+105)
Devers has been on fire lately, driving in seven runs over the last four games. He’s arguably Boston’s best hitter and will be in a great position to deliver on this prop.
