Boston Red Sox 2024 World Series Odds

Boston Red Sox MLB Betting

Despite crying poor in recent seasons, the Boston Red Sox remain in the upper third of the MLB payroll rankings. The Red Sox remain an iconic brand and generate plenty of public betting action. Despite having one of the largest followings of any sport, the Red Sox have fallen upon lean times. Boston has missed the playoffs in four of the last five seasons after winning the 2018 World Series. From 2003 through 2018, the Red Sox made the playoffs ten times with three World Series championships. Thus, fans are frustrated that things are no longer the same. Gamblers are lukewarm about the Red Sox prospects in the 2024 future market.

Boston Red Sox MLB Betting Lines

In 2023, the Boston Red Sox had a record of 78-84 and finished 5th in the American League East Division. Offensively, Boston ranked 11th for runs scored, 6th for batting average, 9th for OPS, 18th for home runs, and 17th for stolen bases. Defensively, Boston ranked 21st for earned run average, 20th for WHIP, 13th for strikeouts, 25th for quality starts, 29th for fewest errors, and 20th for bullpen ERA. Boston was -434 on the moneyline and -1274 on the run line.

Last season, the Red Sox lost significant money for the fourth time in the past five seasons. Boston remains one of the most public brands on the board; thus, when they are ineffective on the diamond, that is exacerbated at the betting window.

Key offseason acquisitions include RHP Lucas Giolito, OF Tyler O'Neill, and 2B Vaughn Grissom.

Key offseason departures include LHP Chris Sale, DH/1B Justin Turner, OF Alex Verdugo, LHP James Paxton, and OF Adam Duvall.

The Red Sox had a lackluster offseason that fell far short of expectations.

Boston ranks 11th for MLB payroll.
