Phillies vs. Red Sox Prediction

The Red Sox has scored 297 runs this season while their opponent has scored 336. When it comes to RBIs, the Phils have taken the lead again as they seem to be offensively intact.

From the pitching end, the Red Sox have not been great with their starting rotation and the bullpen has failed to assist the starters. The opponent has a dominant starting rotation with a strong bullpen to back them. Additionally, their offense has carried them a long way this season to hold a 46-20 record.

Sanchez has a better ERA than Pivetta. With enough support from the plate, they could get past the Red Sox easily. The Phillies have won against stronger teams this season and the betting odds are favoring the Phillies to win this game and the series.

Prediction: Philadelphia Phillies -1.5 (-120).
