Both the Mets and Red Sox have enjoyed a nice run recently. The Mets have won 3 of their last 4 games while the Red Sox have won 11 of their last 15 to move into playoff contention. These teams both have something to play for and this game has a great starting pitching matchup that should make for a great game.

Boston Red Sox ML over New York Mets (-120)

The Red Sox have played great baseball in July. Since June 30, they are 11-4 including 7-3 in their last 10 games with 5 consecutive home wins. Although winning the stacked AL East looks like a long shot, the Red Sox are just 2.5 games out of a wild-card spot. If they were going to be sellers at the trade deadline, the front office is likely rethinking that strategy. This team can make the playoffs but they need to beat weaker teams if they are going to do that.

The Mets, on paper, do not look like a bad team. But their performance would probably qualify them as one. They are 45-51 and just cannot seem to get out of their own way. If the Red Sox can execute, they should be able to beat this Mets team that just has not been able to get it together.

Under 9.5 (-125)

The starting pitching matchup in this game looks great for a low total. Max Scherzer will get the start for the Mets and James Paxton will start for the Red Sox. This season, Scherzer has not been the Cy Young candidate-level pitcher to which we have grown accustomed, but his upside always gives the under a good look and he is coming off a start in which he went 7 innings allowing just 1 hit with no earned runs. If he rolls into this game with similar form, the under will have a great chance.

James Paxton has been fantastic for the Red Sox this year. An ugly outing last week raised his ERA from 2.73 to 3.51, but the Mets present a good bounce-back spot. In the 2 starts prior to that outing, Paxton hurled 13.2 combined innings allowing 2 earned runs and struck out 10. Look for a return to form and an under in this one due to the strong pitching.

Masataka Yoshida 2+ total bases (-110)

Masataka Yoshida has been very good for the Red Sox in his first season in Major League Baseball. He is hitting .317 with 11 home runs and 50 RBIs with an .881 OPS. That is a very productive ball player. Yoshida has had a productive July and that gives his props good value. Yoshida’s batting average has gone from .294 on June 30 up to its current .317. This is a guy who is seeing the ball well and his team is benefiting.

Since June 30, Yoshida has 40 total bases in 15 games — an average of 2.67 per game. He has 15 total bases in his last 4 games for an even higher average recently of 3.75 per game. This Red Sox team is in great form and Yoshida is a significant factor behind their good run. Until he slows down, his props will have solid value.
