The Philadelphia Phillies will host the Boston Red Sox for game two of their interleague series this Saturday from Citizens Bank Park on FOX. Boston took game one after scoring the finals runs in the sixth inning, 5-3.

Red Sox Betting Preview

Boston moved to 20-14 after defeating Philadelphia. The Boston offense is 4.83 scoring runs per game, while batting .246, with a .323 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.10 ERA, with a 1.35 WHIP. Jarren Duran has a hit in nine of the last ten games, and he leads the team in batting (.406). Rafael Devers is one pace to lead the team in RBI again, and he’s up to 32 after a big game against Toronto on Thursday. 

Corey Kluber (1-4, 6.44 ERA, 27 Ks) will begin the game for Boston. The veteran pitcher has been serviceable in his last two starts, but his signs of age have shown throughout the season. Kluber did manage to strike out seven in his last outing versus Toronto, and he earned his first winning decision in his most recent road start in Baltimore.

Phillies Betting Preview

Philadelphia moved to 15-16 after losing to Los Angeles. The Phillies hot end to the first month of action has been erased by a pair of massive losses to LAD, and they’ll attempt to show some fight here in the series finale. The Philadelphia offense is scoring 4.45 runs per game, while batting .266, with a .322 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.95 ERA, with a 1.37 WHIP. Brandon Marsh was hitless last night, but he leads the Phillies in batting (.326). Alec Bohm has produced a run in four of the last six games, and he’s up to a team-lead 24 RBI. Nick Castellanos is second in both BA (.315) and RBI (21), while scoring a team-high 23 runs. 

Bradley Falter (0-5, 4.97 ERA, 22 Ks) will take the mound for Philadelphia. The third-year pitcher has been looking for answers this season, and after dropping his fifth straight start in Houston last week, he’s now allowed four runs or more in three of his last four starts. 

Boston vs Philadelphia Trends

Boston is 20-14 against the spread this season, with a 23-11 O/U record. Philly is 13-20 ATS this year, with a 15-18 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick 

Two of the more ‘identical’ fan bases in the country will be at odds on court and inside the diamond this weekend, and the hosting city will be electric. There’s reason to buy-in to the energy in Philadelphia, especially after the Sixers loss last night in their playoff matchup. Citizens Park will be electric, and I like the Phillies capitalizing off of that energy to bring a win home in game two. The Over will also be a great play here, as neither starting pitcher has shown much resistance thus far.
