The New York Mets and Boston Red Sox open a four-game series on Monday, split between Fenway Park and Citi Field with a nationally-televised ESPN game. First pitch on Monday is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET at Fenway Park. Michael Wacha gets the start for the Mets and Zack Godley takes the hill for the Red Sox.

The Mets are a slim road favorite at -110 on the money line to the Red Sox -106. The Mets -1.5 run line is +132 while the Red Sox +1.5 run line is -157. The run total is 11, with the over at -120 and the under at -103.

The most notable change for either team is the Mets giving Yoenis Cespedes the day off. Dom Smith will start in his place as the designated hitter.
