BOSTON (CBS) — It was a Game of Jones Tuesday for Adam Jones and Matt McCarthy, filling in for Rich Keefe. They played a round of Over/Under, covering the Red Sox’s Drew Pomeranz-for-Anderson Espinoza trade, the Celtics’ offseason plans, and the expectations for Jimmy Garoppolo if and when he starts the first four games of the season for the Patriots.

Here are the over/under numbers, along with Jones’ answers:

Wins for Drew Pomeranz with the Red Sox: 5.5

“He should be over that number,” said Jones. “I don’t think the offense is slowing down whatsoever and you look at some of the records on the pitching staff … I think he’s going to pitch well, so I’ll take the over on Pomeranz.”

All-Star selections in Anderson Espinoza’s career: 3

“Under,” said Jones. “The kid’s 18 … I’m not going to sit here and bet on any 18-year-old pitching in any All-Star games.”

Days until the Celtics make a major trade: 5

“I’ve been waiting for a while for Danny Ainge to do something with his assets,” said Jones. “I don’t think they’re making a deal in the next five days. I’d love it, but I’ll take the over.”

Jimmy Garoppolo touchdowns in Patriots first four games: 8.5

“I’m going to go under, but it’s close,” said Jones. “8.5 is a bit too high for me, but I think Garoppolo is going to play well.”

Nets picks the Celtics end up trading away: 1.5

“I wish the answer were over, but I think it’s definitely under,” said Jones. “I think [Danny Ainge] would move them, but I think he’s over-valuing them.”
