St. Louis is 16-5 in their last 21 Friday games and 5-2 in their last 7 games. The over is 5-1 in St. Louis’ last 6 games. Boston is 4-0 in their last 4 game one’s of a series and 4-1 in their last 5 Friday games. The under is 4-1-1 in Boston’s last 6 home games. St. Louis is 0-4 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.

This should be an excellent matchup between two good teams and two very good starting pitchers. Wainwright has allowed nine runs in his last five starts, while Wacha has allowed 10 runs in his last five starts (five of those 10 came in one start against the White Sox). I know this game is being played at Fenway, but I like the under here.
