The Boston Red Sox are the current defending World Series Baseball champions, and presently sit in third place in the AL East, one game out of a wild card. The Red Sox have split their last 12 games. They’ve scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 12 of their last 14 games.
The Toronto Blue Jays could certainly use a win after losing six of their last nine games prior to Monday’s first game against the Red Sox. The Blue Jays have scored just four runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last six games.
Rafael Devers leads the Red Sox with 116 hits and 64 RBI, while Xander Bogaerts and Mookie Betts have combined for 202 hits and 112 RBI. Eduardo Rodriguez will be the Red Sox’s pitcher, and he is 10-4 with a 4.43 ERA and 116 strikeouts this season.
Freddy Galvis leads the Blue Jays with 91 hits and 44 RBI, while Randal Grichuk and Eric Sogard have 150 hits and 68 RBI combined. Pitcher Aaron Sanchez gets the ball, and he is 3-13 with a 6.22 ERA and 79 strikeouts this season.
Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays Betting Lines & Pick
It’s difficult to make much of a case for the Toronto Blue Jays here in terms of MLB betting predictions for this game, so the Boston Red Sox have to be the tips.
