Team Histories & Final Predictions for the Weekend Games
The Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies have faced each other eighty times and most of those games were played after 1997. In around 60% of those games, the Red Sox have dominated the Phillies and we expect them to do it again this weekend.
The Red Sox are first in the American League’s East Division, for now, with twenty-five wins and eighteen losses. They have four players who won’t make it to the games against the Phillies this weekend due to various injuries, including Chris Sale, Ryan Brasier, Christian Arroyo, and Thad Ward. Zac Grotz and Matt Carasiti are expected to return before the games this weekend but we don’t have any relevant information on their injury status and if they will be okay to play.
The Phillies are second in the National League’s East Division, for now, with twenty-two wins and twenty losses. J.T. Realmuto and Matt Joyce are set to be back before the games, but we don’t have official confirmations on that. Seranthony Dominguez will miss these upcoming games because of his elbow injury which will keep him out until at least September, and JoJo Romero is out for the whole season. There are also two other players, who won’t make the games this weekend because of injuries.
Top Betting Picks & Predictions for the Red Sox vs Phillies Games
Below, you can see the top betting tips and odds for the Red Sox vs Phillies games this weekend.
- Moneyline: Red Sox to Win
- Total Runs: Over 7.5 Runs
- Player to Hit Home Run: Rafael Devers
Choosing the winner is the most straightforward baseball betting market and people choose it most out of all other betting options. Although the Phillies managed to tie the Sox in the short 2020 season, we believe that this time the Red Sox will beat them considering they won 61% of their games against the Phillies.
Total Runs in a Game
If you want to bet on the total runs you should know that you have to watch out for runs made by both teams, not only one. In three of the last four games between the Sox and Phillies, there were more than 7.5 total runs, so it’s safe to assume there would be a lot of runs in the upcoming games between the teams. When betting on over/under markets it’s good to check out past head-to-head stats and individual team statistics.
Rafael Devers to Hit Home Run
Rafael Devers has hit eleven home runs in 2021 and has a 34 RBI, and he was also 16th in the AL home run chart for 2020. Devers will likely hit a home run again, so if the odds are good, why not place this bet? The last time he hit a home run was in the fifth inning of the game against the Los Angeles Angelson on the 16th of May.
