Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays MLB Preview

Division leaders Boston Red Sox welcome Toronto Blue Jays to Fenway Park in a Beantown battle between two AL East rivals. Monday night's game is the first in a four game series and both teams will be looking to recover from recent series defeats.

The Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays square off on Monday evening at Fenway Park to kick off a vital quartet of MLB AL East division matches. The Blue Jays will be hoping to recover from successive losses to the Detriot Tigers, while the Sox look to shake off a series setback against their great rivals the Yankees.

Key Players to Watch

Having a big say in our match analysis is visiting starting pitcher Marcus Stroman who is 9-5 with a 3.28 ERA and 93 strikeouts this year. Interestingly, his career statistics against Boston read pretty impressively - Stroman is 4-2 with a 5.07 ERA and 41 strikeouts. Eduardo Rodriguez returns from injury to take the ball for The BoSox but he has yet to start against Toronto in 2017. Historically in three starts against the Canadians, he went 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA and 10 total walks in a three game loss.

Both Teams Recent Form

Our featured clubs both enter Monday’s contest following deflating series defeats. TOR opened up their three games against Detroit with a 7-2 win, but 11-1 and 6-5 losses after that is bound to knock the stuffing out of them a little. Ahead of our Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays betting pick the home side lost their opening brace of series matches against the Yankees before recovering with a 3-0 win in the last bout.

Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays Head-to-Head

Bos. RS have won all four of their previous meetings with Monday’s opponents, winning 15-1, 7-1, 7-4 and 4-1 respectively. The Canadians 3-0 win back on April 19th was their only win in six over the boys from Beantown.

Outright odds

  • Bos. R. Sox. to win at 20/23
  • Tor. Bl. Jays to win at 20/21

Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays Prediction

Tiredness plays a huge factor in our Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays prediction and the away players will be shattered after throwing for over eight innings on Saturday, as well as having to negotiate the day-night doubleheader against the Yankees on Sunday. That's going to put immense pressure on their bullpen and with Stroman's pitching on the money, the visitors can take a win at Fenway Park. Read below for our expert betting tip.

Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays Betting Pick

Our free pick offering this week is found in the run line for the game. Taking Toronto at +1.5 should give you a safe way to make money at 5/9. Given The Sox tiredness, a price of 20/21 on the money line for an outright win isn’t worth dismissing either.

  • Tor BJs +1.5 runs – 5/9
  • Tor BJs to win – 20/21
