Houston Astros vs Boston Red Sox 5/18/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Houston Astros will meet with the Boston Red Sox in MLB action in Fenway Park, MA, on Tuesday, May 18, 2022, at 6:10 PM ET. The Houston Astros got off to a strong start in the 2022 regular season. They are presently leading the American League West.

 

To start the season, the Astros are averaging 4.28 runs per game and hitting.229 on the offensive side. This club presently ranks 12th in terms of runs gained per game and 19th in terms of team batting average.

 

They have a deep hitting order, and they trust the middle of the lineup to drive in runs. Houston is also one of the league’s least aggressive baserunners. They only stole 16 bases, which ranks them 19th in MLB.

 

They would gain by putting their runners in scoring position sooner in the inning since they would have more opportunities to hit with men on base. In this game, I’d keep an eye out for Michael Brantley at the plate.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 13 of Houston’s previous 20 matches.
  • The Houston Astros are 13-2 SU in their last 15 matches.
  • Houston is 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches against Boston.

Houston Astros vs Boston Red Sox Predictions 5/18/2022

 

The Boston Red Sox did not begin the season as well as they would like, but there is still time to turn things around. They are presently fourth in the American League East. The Red Sox are averaging 3.77 runs per game and have a collective batting average of.229 on the season.

 

This is the 14th highest team batting average and the 23rd most runs scored per game. They can put the ball in play, but they proved that when guys are in scoring position, they struggle. Boston also found that their home run power isn’t as strong as they assumed.

 

They are generating only.62 bombs per game, which ranks them 28th in the MLB. If the Red Sox wants to start generating more runs on the offensive side of the field, they need to start reaching base consistently.

 

Boston is also likely to be cautious on the base paths, given they only stole eight bases all season. They should think about being more aggressive once they reach base since the Red Sox would benefit from more base runners reaching scoring positions. In this game, I’d keep an eye on Xander Bogaerts at the bat.

 

  • The Boston Red Sox are 5-10 SU in their last 15 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 8 of the Red Soxs’ last 10 games with the Astros.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Boston’s last 7 matches at home against Houston.

Houston Astros vs Boston Red Sox. The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros. The Houston Astros will end the series in the same manner as they began it. They crushed the Boston Red Sox on the defensive side of the field in the first game of this series, allowing only three runs to be scored.

 

Houston also has the third-most home runs per game, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they demonstrated their power numerous times in this match. The Houston Astros will win to a predicted score of 6-4.
