At 7:10 pm, our selection is on the Boston Red Sox over the Tampa Bay Rays.  When Nick Pivetta came to Boston from Philadelphia in the latter half of last season, he wasted little time in showing the Red Sox what he could do in his new surroundings.  In two 2020 starts, the 27-year-old RHP went 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA before the COVID-shortened campaign came to an end.  Now it's a year later, and although Pivetta isn't putting up quite the lofty numbers he did in his short 2020 stint, he has still shown his new team that he can contribute.  In 14 starts covering 74 1/3 innings, Pivetta is 6-3 with a 4.36 ERA and a strikeout rate of 10.4 per nine innings.  His only previous start against the Rays was in his first start of this season on April 5 when Pivetta shut out Tampa over five innings, allowing just two hits while striking out four.  That start was at Fenway and so this will be Pivetta's first-ever game action at Tropicana Field.  Despite their loss on Wednesday night, the Red Sox are still 5-1 in the last six meetings with the Rays.  Take Boston.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.

At 8:05 pm, our selection is on the Vegas Golden Knights over the Montreal Canadiens.  The Habs did it again, taking a must-win Game 5 in hostile territory on Tuesday night -- but at this point that shouldn't surprise anyone.  The Montreal win in Vegas puts the Canadiens one win away from one of the most improbable Cup Finals in their storied history.  But if you're the Knights, this is no time to panic.  They were here in Montreal just four days ago coming off a similar loss and they held the Habs to just 21 shots on goal en route to a 2-1 overtime victory.  Another reason for the Knights to have confidence going into tonight is the fact that they tend to shine in these revenge situations.  Vegas is 6-1 (+7 games on the moneyline) in its last seven games revenging a loss of four or more goals to an opponent.  Even though Vegas lost on the scoreboard, 4-1, it actually outshot the Canadiens.  And it's 9-1 this season off a loss, in which it outshot its opponent.  Meanwhile the Canadiens are 8-10 (-4 games on the moneyline) in their last 18 coming off a road victory by three or more goals.  They are also 5-10 in their last 15 after allowing one goal or less in their previous game.  Take the Knights.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.

At 2:05 pm, our selection is on the Oakland Athletics over the Texas Rangers.  Chris Bassitt had one of the best campaigns of any MLB starter last season, going 5-2 with a 2.29 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 11 starts covering 63 innings.  The 32-year-old RH finished eighth in the AL Cy Young voting and those numbers clearly would have gotten him a nod to his first All-Star game -- if there had been one, however the 2020 Mid-summer Classic was cancelled.  No problem if you're Bassitt -- just repeat the performance in 2021, which he seems to be doing. The ERA may be elevated over last season (3.40) but his WHIP is better (1.06) and Bassitt has a record of 7-2 and a 9.5 K rate so don't be surprised if you see him in Denver on July 13.  Bassitt will go for win number eight in this afternoon affair against the Rangers.  Bassitt would love nothing better than a repeat of the last time he faced Texas -- a 10-1 beatdown in 2020 in which he went six strong innings, allowing one run with eight strikeouts.  The A's are 7-1 in Bassitt's last eight starts.  Take Oakland.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
