Astros vs Red Sox Props: Best Baseball Props Today ALCS Game 6
Red Sox to Score the First Run (-160) at BetMGM
The Red Sox will be facing Luis Garcia in Game 6, the right-hander they tagged for five earned runs in Game 2 in just one inning. The Red Sox score early and often when they go on their offensive streaks and them being the visiting team makes this prop valuable for me.
I don’t expect Nathan Eovaldi to get hammered until late, despite his most recent, dreadful performance in relief. I’m backing the Red Sox to score their first of many runs in this game before Houston gets on the board.
Boston’s offense is simply too good to fade.

Both Teams to Score 3 or More Runs (-110) at BetMGM
As previously mentioned, I am expecting a ton of offense in this game. Eovaldi is coming off a rough relief outing and his confidence is likely down enough for the Astros to take advantage.
Garcia has had two horrendous starts in the postseason where he allowed five earned runs each time out. I have faith in both the Astros and Red Sox to figure out each others’ pitching staffs at the plate and make this a full-on shootout.

No game has been particularly close since Game 1, as one side has demolished the other in every game since. However, I believe this is the one where both teams go crazy with the scoring, especially at a bandbox like Minute Maid Park.
In this series, the Astros are currently averaging 6.2 runs per game while the Red Sox are averaging 5.6 runs per game. Boston’s median run total this series is four while the Astros is five.
That’s a lot of numbers above the required three runs for this prop to hit. Tons of value here, in my opinion, especially given that it is on standard -110 odds.
