Boston is pricey at -203 but the total is certainly appealing.

This number went from 9.5 to 10.

Seven of the last ten meetings have gone OVER that number.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Mariners RH Erik Swanson (1-3, 4.94 ERA) vs. Red Sox LH Eduardo Rodriguez (3-2, 5.40)

Swanson halted a three-start losing streak with the best performance of his rookie campaign, earning his first career victory by allowing one hit over six scoreless innings at Cleveland last time out. The 25-year-old was rocked for nine runs and 11 hits over four innings by Texas in his previous turn and roughed up for five runs (four earned) over 5 2/3 innings in a loss at San Diego on April 23. Right-handed hitters are doing the bulk of the damage against Swanson, batting .302 and accounting for four of the five home runs off him.

Rodriguez was shelled in his first two outings of the year, giving up six runs and eight hits in losses to both Seattle and Oakland, but he rebounded with a five-start undefeated streak. He improved to 3-0 over the past five turns by holding the Chicago White Sox to one run on six hits over six innings on Saturday. Rodriguez is 2-3 with a 4.50 ERA in six career starts versus Seattle but has been tormented by Dee Gordon, who is 6-for-10 against him but left Thursday's game after getting hit by a pitch on the right wrist and will undergo more tests Friday.

The OVER is 7-2 in Mariners last 9 games following a loss.

The OVER is 10-4 in Red Sox last 14 after scoring 2 runs or less in their previous game.

Boston has scored five or more runs in seven of their last ten overall. 

Seattle has permitted five or more runs in six of their last ten overall.

This one goes OVER 10.
