There is good news for those who plan on staying up for the World Cup. There is a handful of early MLB games to follow the World Cup opener.
New York Mets at Arizona D-backs (11:40am)
The Wolf will start with a preview of the 37-30 D-backs and 28-36 Mets clash at Chase Field. The Mets are in the midst of a horrible run of form and the Wolf isn’t liking their chances in Arizona. Overall in they’re last 10 games, the Mets are 1-9 and average 1.5 runs per game! Their latest away series saw the Mets lineup score 2 runs in 2 games. The D-backs will put the ball in the right-hand of Matt Koch (4-3, 4.20 ERA) and he’ll be looking forward to facing this lineup. The D-backs offence is firing at the moment with a total of 71 runs in their last 10 games. Which includes 7 straight games with 4 or more runs scored. So the $1.87 odds on offer for the home side is really good value. They swept the Mets in the last series at this venue (2017) and they’ve won 21 of 35 at home this season.
Boston Red Sox at Seattle Mariners (12:10pm)
The day of MLB action ends with arguably the best matchup. The 47-22 Boston Red Sox head to Seattle for a battle against the high flying Mariners. The home side just swept the Angels in 3 high scoring games and they will aim for win number 8 in a row at Safeco Field on Friday. But this Red Sox side is 24-11 on the road in 2018 and will be confident. This is the first meeting between the sides this season and since 2017, they’ve both won 3 games against each other. So it’s likely the pitching matchup will decide this game. The Mariners have King Felix on the mound and his record against Boston isn’t great. In his last 5, his ERA sits at 7.76 and he’s also coming off a 5 earned run outing in Tampa. His ERA in his last 5 overall starts this season is 6.52. Meanwhile, Red Sox starter David Price has won 3 straight starts but still holds a pretty high ERA of 4.17 in his last 7 starts. He also gave up 4 runs in his last outing at this venue. So in the end, with two of best batting lineups on show, the Wolf will be getting on the overs. The Red Sox average 5.5 runs on the road in their last 4 and the Mariners have scored 5 or more runs in their last 3 home wins.
|Giants at Marlins – 2:10am||Marlins WIN ($1.91)|
|Rockies at Phillies – 3:05am||Over 8.5 runs ($1.94)|
