New York Mets vs Boston Red Sox Predictions 7/22/2023


Boston is back in the Wild Card competition, with only three games separating it from the final WC position.


Will the Red Sox be able to climb the standings? Boston is fifth in terms of runs scored per game (5.01), hits (4.263), and OPS (7.63). It has 105 home runs (21st) and 66 base steals (17th) this season.


With 29 quality starts, the pitching staff ranks 23rd with a 4.35 ERA (17th) and a 1.30 WHIP (18th).

New York Mets vs. Boston Red Sox. The MLB pick for this game is the Boston Red Sox.


The Red Sox hit quite well at home (.290 BA/.356 OBP/.465 SLG/.821 OPS in 48 games), and many people aren’t too confident in forecasting another solid start from Scherzer since he was too prone to the big ball recently (eleven HR in his past eight starts).


Against left-handed pitchers, the Mets only hit 0.230/.307/.391/.699 on the season.


Although Paxton may not be a big name, he is an experienced veteran who limited eight out of his eleven opponents to two runs or fewer this season.


He is anticipated to have a much stronger start at home against the weak Mets lineup to compensate for his bad performance in his previous start.


On Saturday at Fenway, bet on Boston to appear like a contender and New York to look like a pretender. The Boston Red Sox will win by a predicted score of 6-4.
