The Boston Red Sox and the Cleveland Guardians meet in MLB action from Progressive Field on Tuesday. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.


Cleveland is listed as a -120 home favorite while Boston is a +100 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 8 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

James Paxton will start for the Red Sox and is 1-1 with a 4.26 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. Shane Bieber will get the nod for the Guardians and is 4-3 with a 3.72 ERA and 53 strikeouts this season. 

Matchup History

Boston’s 7-1 win over the Guardians back on April 30th, 2023, made it back-to-back wins for the Red Sox in this head-to-head matchup. 


Boston is 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 2-6 in their last 8 games overall while the under is 8-2 in their last 10 road games. Cleveland is 2-6 in their last 8 games following a win and 1-11 in their last 12 Tuesday games while the under is 20-4-2 in their last 26 home games. 


I’m backing the under here. The Red Sox offense has really cooled down as of late, while the Guardians haven’t been a team that I’ve been able to trust with the offense in a lot of their recent outings. Add in the recent form of Paxton and Bieber for the most part and I think this could end up being a bit of an under the radar pitcher’s duel. Give me the under here.
