Philadelphia Phillies vs Boston Red Sox 3/2/2023 Best Picks, Tips and Game Predictions

The Philadelphia Phillies and the Boston Red Sox are set to face off at Jetblue Park in Fort Myers, USA. Both teams will be sending their best pitchers, Tanner Houck for the Red Sox and Bailey Falter for the Phillies. The Phillies have made significant moves in the offseason and are aiming for nothing less than a World Series title this year. Under the leadership of President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski, they have added top talents such as Trea Turner, Taijuan Walker, Craig Kimbrel, and Gregory Soto to their roster. They are now focused on winning rather than settling for the Wild Card spot.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox finished last in the American League East last season, 21 games behind the division winner New York Yankees. In Wednesday’s game against the Minnesota Twins, the Red Sox tied 4-4 after Francisco Morales gave up two walks and an infield single before being replaced by Braden Zarbnisky, who threw a wild pitch and allowed the winning run to score. Although they have struggled in the past, the Red Sox will be looking to improve this season and start off with a win against the Phillies. The game is expected to be highly competitive, but the Phillies are predicted to win with a score of 7-4.

  • The Philadelphia Phillies are 3-2 in their last 5 games.
  • The Phillies are 4-1 in their last 5 games against the spread

Philadelphia Phillies vs Boston Red Sox 3/2/2023 Best Picks, Tips and Game Predictions

On Wednesday, the Red Sox and Astros battled to a 4-4 tie after Houston scored three runs in the sixth and seventh innings to erase Boston’s 4-1 lead. Raimel Tapia led the Red Sox with two hits, while the team combined for seven hits and two errors. Despite a disappointing 78-84 record last season, the Red Sox have made some key acquisitions, including former Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber, who brings dependability and consistency to the mound.

Kluber’s acquisition may prove to be one of Boston’s most underrated moves of the off-season. Although he’s on the back end of his career, the right-hander has only had two losing records in his 12-year career (excluding 2012, when he played only 12 games). Kluber’s dependability and consistency on the mound will be a valuable asset to the Red Sox and could help propel them to victory.

  • The Boston Red Sox are 3-2 in their last 5 games against the spread.
  • The Red Sox are 41-40 in their road games against the spread.
  • The totals have gone OVER in 3 of Boston’s last 5 games.

Philadelphia Phillies vs Boston Red Sox. The MLB pick for this game is the Boston Red Sox. The Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies are both off to a strong start in the Grapefruit League.

Looking ahead to their upcoming match in Fenway South, the Red Sox are expected to continue their unbeaten run and improve to 4-0.
