Texas Rangers at Boston Red Sox (9:10am)

Tip: Red Sox Over 5.5 Runs ($1.94)

The Red Sox and Rangers feature on ESPN this Thursday at Fenway Park. This will be a tough challenge for Texas as they’ve struggled to contain the in-form Red Sox. They easily hold the best record in the Majors at 64-29. At home, they’ve won 30 of 42 games, which includes 6 straight victories. In this series so far, they’ve outscored the Rangers 13-4 in 2 games and the Wolf can’t see that changing. On the mound, the Red Sox give the ball to Chris Sale. He has an ERA of 2.36 in season 2018 and a 9-4 win-loss record. His last 4 starts have seen 10+ strikeouts and just 13 hits allowed in 27 innings pitched. He also dominated the Rangers in May, going 7 innings and allowing 4 hits with 12 strikeouts. Meanwhile, the Rangers Bartolo Colon (5-6, 4.65 ERA) toes the rubber. His ERA in his last 7 is 6.51 which is disappointing after a good start to the season. He also gave up 4 runs in his 2018 start against the Red Sox. Overall this season, the Red Sox have scored 5 or more runs in all 6 games against Texas. So the team total of 5.5 runs is the best value bet the Wolf can find. They’ve also scored over this total in 4 of their last 5 overall games.

Seattle Mariners at Los Angeles Angels (12:07pm)

Tip: Over 8.5 runs ($1.82)

In the late game, the Wolf will look at a tough matchup between the Angels and Mariners. The Angels are just favourites in the betting at $1.83. In this pitching matchup last week, the Mariners got over the line 4-1 in Seattle. They’ve also recorded a 6-3 record against the Angels this season. But the main sticking point is all of those 9 games have been in Seattle. So the Angels will more confident in their home ballpark. On the mound, the Angels give the ball to Jaime Barria and the Mariners Marco Gonzales (9-5, 3.64 ERA) toes the rubber. Gonzales has struggled on the road recently with 2 rough starts in Boston and New York. The Angels have had success against him this season as well. Meanwhile, Barria has lost 2 his starts against the Mariners this season. So the Wolf is tipping runs will be easy to come by for both sides and the over total salutes. The total has reached 8.5 runs or more in 5 of 9 games between the 2 sides this season. They’ve also beaten the over total in the first game of this series as the Wolf speaks.
