The over has cashed in each of the first three games of the ALCS between the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros, and each team brings their hot offenses into tonight's Game 4 matchup.

Betting Impact:

The over/under for tonight's Game 4 is ten runs, per BettingPros consensus odds. The over has cashed in Houston’s last six games, including their last five games as an underdog. Even though starting pitcher Zack Greinke may only throw a couple of innings, the over is 4-0 in his previous four starts as a road underdog. On the other side, the over has also cashed in Boston’s last six games and is 5-0 in the previous five meetings between these teams. In addition to Boston’s grand slam history-making, their offense has also made history of a different kind. Per ESPN Stats & Info, the Red Sox have ten or more hits in six consecutive games, which is the longest streak within a postseason in MLB history. In addition, their 19 home runs this postseason is one shy of their franchise records for most home runs in a single postseason, which they accomplished in 2003.
