The Wolf is back after a 10-3 day and will be swinging for the fences on Friday!

Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox (9:10am)

Tip: Under 9.5 runs ($1.90)

The Red Sox are set to take on the Orioles at Fenway Park in their AL East matchup. The home side earned a sweep in the last series. They rank 2nd in the Majors for runs scored and had an average of 6.67 runs in the previous series at Fenway. Meanwhile for the away side, the start to the season has been pretty dreadful as they sit last in the AL East. Their away record is especially poor with just 3 wins from 19. In those 19 games, they allow on average 6.11 runs per game. In the pitching matchup, David Price is up for the Red Sox and he will pitch against Kevin Gausman for the Orioles. Price holds a 4.89 ERA this season and has had issues with an injured hand. However, he showed good signs in his latest start in Toronto, going 5.1 innings and striking out 6. He holds a 4-1 record against the Orioles with a 2.50 ERA. So the Wolf is confident he can keep that record intact. While, Gausman has an ERA of 3.18 and has been putting in a few quality starts lately. In his last 2 starts against Boston alone, he’s allowed just 7 hits over 15.2 innings with 0 earned runs. So the Wolf believes the total runs is set very high at 9.5 runs with both pitchers capable of keeping this low scoring.

Colorado Rockies at San Francisco Giants (12:15pm)

Tip: Over 8 runs ($1.90)

In the late game, The Wolf will preview the 22-22 Giants and 23-20 Rockies at AT&T Park. Both sides are pretty similar. They’re in the minus category for run difference and average around 4 runs per game. The Giants are 12-8 at home and the Rockies actually play better on the road with 16 wins from 25. However, in the head to head, the Giants hold a 6-3 record since last season. So they should be confident of beating the Rockies. But considering the pitching matchup, this should be high scoring. The Giants will put the ball in the right-hand of Jeff Samardzija (1-2, 6.94 ERA). He’s having a terrible run of starts with 18 total runs allowed in his last 18 innings. He also holds a 6.75 ERA against the Rockies in his last 5 career starts. While for the Rockies, Chad Bettis heads to the hill. His ERA sits at 3.12 and his win-loss record is 4-1. He has a poor record against the Giants, especially in San Fran. His last outing this season was one to forget. In 5 innings, he gave up 10 hits, which resulted in 7 earned runs. So the Wolf does like the over total because this matchup could go either way in terms of a winner. The average total runs since last season is 9.39 runs so get on the overs!
