-The SV Game Preview-

  • Tonight we have the Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox in a MLB battle at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts! The Redsox just had their most dominate game of their season yesterday putting up 17 runs against this cubs team! Can they continue that type of offense? Lets look into this game at a betting perspective and find a winning prediction.

  • We have seen the best game of the year from the Sox yesterday! they exploded for 17 runs and The Boston Red Sox are now 15-13 this year and they have lost three of their last five games, but they will look to carry some of their magic from Saturday into today. Boston lost game one in this series on Friday, but they won game two by a score of 17-0 on Saturday. Prior to this series, the Red Sox lost two out of three against Cleveland and swept the Pirates in three games. Boston doesn’t have the best lineup, but they have played solid baseball so far this year and they are third in the AL East, behind the Orioles and Yankees.  The Boston pitching staff has a 2.63 ERA, a 1.14 WHIP, and a .225 opponent batting average. The Red Sox offense has scored 134 runs with a .246 batting average and a .317 on base percentage. Jarren Duran is batting .252 with one home run and 11 RBI’s for the Red Sox. Boston has the best team ERA in the MLB this season, but they are only 4-8 at home.

  • After a horrible beat down yesterday The Chicago Cubs now are 17-10 this season and they have won four of their last five games, but they are looking for answers after getting blown out on Saturday. Chicago won the first game in this series by a score of 7-1, but they lost game two by a score of 17-0. Prior to this series, the Cubs swept the Astros in three games and split a four game set with Miami. Chicago has started the 2024 season playing very well and they are currently second in the NL Central, only a half game behind Milwaukee.  The Chicago pitching staff has a 4.23 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and a .242 opponent batting average. The Cubs offense has scored 140 runs with a .247 batting average and a .326 on base percentage. Dansby Swanson is batting .237 with three home runs and 11 RBI’s for the Cubs this year. Chicago’s pitching staff has had some issues this season, but their offense has really carried them, as they are sixth in runs scored. Can we see a bounce back in this game from the Cubs?

( pick ) Boston RedSox ML -120

  • I know this might be hard to believe but its facts! Boston comes into this game with the best team ERA in the MLB this season and they will have Houck on the mound, who has been great in five starts this year. Chicago may not have the best pitching staff, but their offense has been great, despite being shutout on Saturday. I really like this Cubs offense, but I don’t love Wesneski on the mound. My Chicago Cubs vs Boston Red Sox prediction is for the Red Sox to get the win at home.
