Moneyline pick, best player prop for Red Sox vs. Royals on Friday

We go over some of the best betting options for Friday’s matchup between the Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals.

MLB: Miami Marlins at Boston Red Sox Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Red Sox vs. Royals, 8:10 p.m. ET

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.
