Red Sox at Mets, 6:40 p.m. ET
Odds: Mets -275, Red Sox +220 || O/U 7
Pick: Nick Pivetta (2-0, 3.48 ERA) of the Red Sox will face the Mets’ Jacob deGrom (2-1, 0.31).
While Pivetta has pitched well, deGrom has been nearly unhittable, as usual (50 K in 4 starts). Sports Section likes deGrom to keep it rolling. But with the massive price, parlay the Mets on the moneyline with the under.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Bruins-Penguins, the final score, and the first goal-scorer. Boston won 3-1, with David Krejci notching the first goal.
While no one predicted Krejci to score first, subscriber Tim Maher (@glenayrfarm) did have the Bruins and was closest to the final score. Well done, Tim!
Keep the picks coming, everyone!
