The Wolf is back with his full tips for Friday’s action below.
Pittsburgh Pirates at Philadelphia Phillies (9:05am)
The Wolf is interested in this matchup as both sides are showing good early form. The Pirates are 12-6, which was pretty unexpected after losing two of their best players in the offseason. The Phillies are 10-6 and have a 5-1 record at home. So this matchup will likely come down to the pitching matchup. The Phillies will have Arrieta on the mound and he’s coming off his first win at his new team. Against the Rays, he went 6.2 innings and allowed 7 hits in a 9-4 victory. But he will look to rebound after a rocky home start when he lasted just 4 innings against the Marlins. While for the Pirates, Taillon is looking impressive in his first 3 starts. He dominated the Reds previously in a 9 inning, 1 hit outing. His last outing went 6 innings and he allowed 4 hits as the Pirates won 1-0. So the Wolf is liking an upset here for the Pirates. They’re also 5-2 against the Phillies on the road since 2016. In 2018 so far, they’re 4-1 as an underdog so the Wolf will back them here.
Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Angels (12:07pm)
The late game of the day is once again in Anaheim as the Angels host the Red Sox in game 3. So far Boston has handled LA in this series and the Angels will be looking to rebound. The Red Sox will start as the favourite and it’s hard to look past their form. They’ll have Eduardo Rodriguez on the mound and he’s coming off a solid 6 inning outing against the Orioles. While for the Angels, Nick Tropeano dominated the Royals in his first start of the season. He went 6.2 innings and allowed just 6 hits as the Angels won 7-1. So the Wolf is liking the under total for value in this game. Both pitcher’s are in form and they should be able to contain each lineup.
