The MLB is back in action as the San Francisco Giants will clash with the Boston Red Sox at the Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.
San Francisco Giants Form
The Giants will not take part in the playoffs this season. However, they are determined to have a strong finish of the season. Also, on a positive note, the Giants are currently at 39-36 on the road for the year and they have averaged 5.07 runs per game in those games. Therefore, they are a strong away team.
As for their home form, they have averaged 3.39 runs per game with 33-42 so far this season at home.
On the offensive side of the game, the Giants are 28th in the league in scoring, as their record stands at 4.23 runs per game. Also, they are ranking 28th in hitting at .240 and 27th in homers with 158. On the mound, they are 14th in the league in the league in ERA at 4.37, while also ranking 9th in WHIP at 1.30 and 23rd in K’s with 1241.
Boston Red Sox Form
The Red Sox are another team that will not take part of the playoffs. Moreover, it seems that their home form was the problem as they are at 36-39 here at home. Last year, the Red Sox won it all and they went 57-24 here at home for the year. A big difference and it is no coincidence that they will not be playing in the postseason.
On the offensive side of the game, the Red Sox are on the 4th spot in the league in scoring as their record is at 5.58 runs per game. Also, they are 2nd in hitting at .270 and 10th in homers with 228. On the mound, they are 19th in the league in ERA at 4.63. And they are ranking 18th in WHIP at 1.37 and 3rd in K’s with 1483.
My feeling here is that the Giants are the value bet in this one. The Red Sox have a better record playing on the road this season. And the Giants have a better away record than their home record. All in all, I expect San Francisco to win this game.
