Today’s matchup is between the Houston Astros (34-26) and the Boston Red Sox (37-24). The Astros have won 3 of their last 5 games & the Red Sox have won 4 of their last 5 games.

The Astros are starting Jake Odorizzi (RHP), who is 0-3 on the season with a 7.16 ERA, 5.57 FIP, 0.361 wOBA, K% of 23.6%, BB% of 9.7%, 89.3 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.49 WHIP in 16.1 innings pitched.

The Red Sox are starting Nathan Eovaldi (RHP), who is 7-2 on the season with a 3.78 ERA, 2.39 FIP, 0.289 wOBA, K% of 23.3%, BB% of 5%, 88.4 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.19 WHIP in 66.2 innings pitched.

The Astros are 25th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Red Sox are 4th.

On the hitting side, the Astros have a .332 wOBA and a .339 OBP with 68 HRs. While the Red Sox have a .326 wOBA and a .317 OBP with 74 HRs.

The Red Sox are playing at a high level now and I don't see that stopping with Nathan Eovaldi on the mound. Jake Odorizzi (Astros) should get hit for a couple of runs in 5 innings or less so I like the Red Sox chances to win.
