Boston Red Sox at St. Louis Cardinals Betting Pick

St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets Betting Preview

The Boston Red Sox are at the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday. This is the first of a three game weekend series at Busch Stadium. The Boston Red Sox are 22-22 on the season. The Red Sox are now in fourth place in the American League East. Boston is coming off losing three out of four at home to Tampa Bay.

The St. Louis Cardinals come into the game with an 18-25 record. That is the worst in the National League Central. The Cardinals are coming off a 7-2 loss on the road at the Angels on Wednesday.

The Boston Red Sox are -120 in this game on the road at the Cardinals. The total is set at 7.5 runs.

Red Sox Turn to Youngster

Brayan Bello will get the nod for the Boston Red Sox. Bello has gone 4-1 on the season in 6 starts. He holds a 3.13 earned run average on the season. Bello has thrown 31.2 innings this season, and struck out 27 batters, while walking 9.

The offense went pretty quiet in the series loss to Tampa Bay. That has been a theme several times, with their .243 batting average. Pitching has not been super either, as they allowed 7 runs in the Thursday loss to the Rays. The top threats in the offense have been former Cardinal Tyler O’Neill, with 10 homeruns, as well as Wilyer Abreu, with 10 doubles.

Boston stays on the road following this series, and heads to Tampa for a three game series. After a day off, the Red Sox go home and host the Brewers over the weekend, and then back on the road to Baltimore.

Last Place Cardinals

Kyle Gibson will get the nod for St. Louis. The right hander is 2-2 on the season with a 3.67 earned run average. Gibson has thrown 49 innings this season, and struck out 40 batters, while walking 20.

The Cardinals offense has fallen on hard times. St. Louis is 27th in the league with 3.6 runs per game. The Cardinals team batting average is at .225. Paul Goldschmidt has struggled all season, with a .206 average, while Nolan Arenado is at .258. The Cardinals power has gone missing, with just 32 homeruns on the season.

St. Louis will remain at home and host the Orioles for three games next week, and then the Chicago Cubs over the weekend. After the 9 game home stand, the Cardinals are on the road at the Cincinnati Reds for three games.

Cardinals Top Red Sox

Look for Gibson to throw well at home. He has not been that bad for the Cardinals. Bello has good stuff, and it should be a pretty low scoring game. In the end, the Cardinals score late and win this game in a battle of disappointing teams.

Our final bet for this game on Friday is the St. Louis Cardinals +100 over the Boston Red Sox. We hope you enjoy this game and all the Major League Baseball action for Friday!
