Let’s just hope this game gets played. The forecast tonight in Baltimore does not look baseball-friendly, so keep an eye on the skies if you’re investing in this AL East matchup. The division-leading Red Sox are coming off a home sweep of the Tigers. The Orioles may not be particularly good, but they have been at least frisky of late as they just won four of six games on a West Coast road trip.
Moneyline pick: Red Sox -157
Matt Harvey has actually been stellar in his last couple of turns, including six innings with one run allowed in a victory over the Yankees in late April. However, Eduardo Rodriguez is clearly the better pitcher in this duel. I’ll put my trust in him and a Boston offense that leads MLB in runs scored.
Player Prop: Xander Bogaerts OVER 0.5 RBIs (+132)
Bogaerts has been on fire since the calendar flipped to May. He is 10-for-21 with five RBIs in five games this month. Batting cleanup in this fearsome lineup, he’ll have his run-producing opportunities tonight against Harvey. Bogaerts hit .313 with a 1.139 OPS at Camden Yards during the shortened 2020 season.
