Phillies vs Red Sox: Free MLB Betting Picks


After reeling off five straight wins the Red Sox are still fighting to remain in the wildcard search but the issue is, will they maintain their winning ways as they start a mini ? Philadelphia (64-60 SU) vs Boston (67-59 SU) Game Time: Tuesday, August 20th, 7:05 PM ET Free MLB Select: Phillies Finest Line Launched: YouWager After dropping two of three to the Padres the Phillies will try to rally tonight. To be able to get back on course, Philadelphia’s ace Aaron Nola (11-3, 3.56 ERA, 1.26 WHIP) will take the mound following a dazzling performance in his last outing where he allowed only one run on three hits in an 11-1 demolition of the Chicago Cubs. The 26-year-old right-hander has confronted the Red Sox just once in his profession, which came a little over a year ago when he uttered a run on four hits in eight innings of work, resulting in a 2-1 extra-innings reduction to the eventual World Series champs. Following Chris Sale was closed down for the year because of inflammation of the left 28, the Red Sox rotation is in a small quandary. Thus, Boston will ship reliever/starter Brian Johnson (1-1, 6.45 ERA, 2.01 WHIP) to the bulge tonight with the expectation that he can undergo a couple innings without too much damage. In his last start, Johnson pitched innings where he allowed one earned run over Cleveland last Wednesday. Before the relief corps requires over manager Alex Cora was cautious with Johnson this season, primarily limiting his begins. The longest Johnson has since gone this year was five innings against the Yankees if he surrendered one run (none earned) on four hits in an 8-7 loss back in June. The MLB odds are currently showing the Red Sox as favorites in this one, regardless of the favorable pitching matchup of Philadelphia. A lot of this has to perform Boston’s prolific offense which has plated a mean of 5.8 runs per game, trailing only the Yankees in this category. Twenty-two-year-old Rafael Devers is currently penalizing the ball this season with a .332 batting average, 27 home runs, and 101 RBI which makes him an MVP candidate that is undeniable. Devers lit the Orioles’ pitchers on Sunday when he went a set of doubles and four RBI to lead the Sox to a victory. Their record is further evidence that pitching is paramount in baseball as good as the Boston lineup is. The Phillies offense remains sane but throughout the year has plagued them. Brian Johnson is much more suited to mid-relief than he’s I really don’t find this moving the way of Boston tonight and a starting pitcher. Even if Johnson will give these three decent innings, their bullpen has been suspect, and the absence of a nearer has haunted them since they failed to re-sign Craig Kimbrel from last year. I will take the cost on the Phillies and keep cashing those tickets! Final rating: Phillies 7 — Red Sox 4 Read more:
