MLB Odds: World Series within Reach for Boston Red Sox
It’s been a wild ride for both Boston and the St. Louis Cardinals so far this week, one that’s put two of the most dominant MLB clubs of the past decade through the ringer. Now with an end in sight, St. Louis and their young manager Mike Matheny will have to find a way to respond.
While the Cardinals have dug themselves a whole heading into the final two series matchups, they’ve been mainstays atop the MLB futures for much of the season. Why? Because they have legitimate World Series experience.
Sure, there’s no guarantee that that translates over into success late in the best-of-seven, but the veteran attitude in the clubhouse certainly doesn’t hurt.
Home advantage has not panned out so far with Boston only going 1-1 at Fenway initially, and then St Louis going 1-2 when they hosted, so despite the "home advantage" the World Series is still up for grabs.
Can the Red Sox hold on in front of their faithful Beantown crowd when Game 6 unfolds Wednesday night? Expect John Lackey and Michael Wacha on the mound when we find out.
GAME 6 MONEY LINES : WED 30th Oct : 8:07pm.
-105 St Louis Cardinals (Pitcher : Michael Wacha : W-L 4-1 : ERA 2.78)
