Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox entered the season as one of the favorites to contend for the World Series from the AL, but their record sits at just 19-18 early on.
The bats will need to get going, as they currently sit in the middle of the pack in runs scored (15th) and second last overall in homers.
Taking the mound will be Eduardo Rodriguez, the young lefty who has been excellent so far this year.
Rodriguez enters the game with a 2.80 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP in six starts, where he’s registered a 10.7 K/9.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals have performed above expectations thus far, though this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that the perennial contenders are off to a good start.
Their pitching has been their calling card once again, as their bats rank out similar to those of the Red Sox at 16th in runs scored and 21st in homers.
Lance Lynn has looked sharp in his return year from Tommy John surgery, currently owning a 2.75 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP through 7 starts.
He will be looking to rebound from a rough outing his last time out vs. Miami, where he allowed 4 earned runs in as many innings and issued 4 free passes as well.
- Boston are 7-9 on the road this year.
- Over is 7-1 in Boston’s last 8 games.
- Boston is 23-9 in their last 32 interleague games.
- Over is 13-3 in St. Louis’ last 16 games as a favorite.
- Over is 10-3 in ST. Louis’ 13 games following a win.
- St. Louis is 10-6 at home this year.
Free Boston Red Sox vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
With two pitchers who have excelled this season, and bats on each of the teams that haven’t been crushing many homers, I like the Under here despite the trends that would indicate otherwise as above.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 8.5
The Cardinals are hitting just .241 versus lefties and Rodriguez has performed like a top pitcher. Yes, Boston has been very good versus righties, but Lance Lynn has a quality start in each of his seven trips to the hill this season and has a 1.47 ERA at home this year.
