The St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox meet in MLB action from Fenway Park in this week’s edition of Sunday night baseball. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.


St. Louis is listed as a -120 road favorite while Boston is listed as a +100 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 10.5 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Miles Mikolas will start for St. Louis and is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 41 strikeouts this season. Corey Kluber will start for Boston and is 2-4 with a 6.29 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

St. Louis’ 4-3 win over Boston on Saturday made it back-to-back wins for the Cardinals in this head-to-head matchup.


St. Louis is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall and 5-12 in their last 17 games following a win while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 interleague games. Boston is 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 7-3 in their last 10 games following a loss while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 home games against a team with a right-handed starter.


I’m backing the over here. I just don’t trust this pitching matchup to keep the runs off of the board as Miles MIkolas hasn’t been good on the road and I’ve also watched Corey Kluber get torched multiple times as well this season. This to me feels like a game where both starters get chased early and the bullpens are used a lot on Sunday.
