Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays

MLB: Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at 7:07 PM EST

Time is running out for the defending World Series champion Red Sox to make it back to the playoffs. Things do not look for good for them and the team recently made a shocking decision to fire manager Dave Dombrowski. Boston comes into this series limping and they have no chance in the AL East and they are eight games out of the Wild Card with only 18 games left on their schedule.

Toronto is reeling as of late but would love to play spoiler for the Red Sox and their slim playoff hopes. Still, they have struggled at the dish and on the mound in a long losing streak entering this season, so just getting a W may be their main priority.

One thing going for them

The one thing the Red So have going for them is that they come into this series winning 35 of their last 52 games facing the Blue Jays. They have recently lost three in a row to the New York Yankees where they were outscored 20-6 in the three losses and at least the Sox are on the road where they have a better record than at home. Rafael Devers and Xander Bogarts both rank in the top four in the AL in RBI, but each has failed to get one in a recent three-game stretch.

Boston has not decided on a starter at time of writing, but their pitching has been their main downfall this season. They rank a legit 4th in the Majors in runs scored, but they only rank 19th in runs scored. Ace Chris Sale is out for the season and former Cy Young winner Rick Porcello will likely end the season with his first with an ERA north of 5.00. the last time the Red Sox faced the Jays it was in Boston in a four-game set right after the All-Star break where the Sox took four games. The Red Sox have had their issues as of late, but most of their recent games have been at home and they have won eight of their last 10 road games.

Stop the slide

The Jays come into this series losing seven in a row and nine of 10 games and in their last game before Boston, they lost to the Tampa Bay Rays 8-3. Randal Grichuk went yard in the game, and you can tell how bad things have been for Toronto since he leads the team in home runs and RBI even though he only has 25 round trippers and has knocked in 64 runs.

The Blue Jays have not been good north of the border this season and have lost 20 of their last 26 home games facing the Red Sox.

Trent Thornton has the task of taming the Sox and in his last start he pitched well only giving up one run in four 2.3 innings but got no help from the lineup in a 4-0 loss to the Rays. Toronto has lost his last six appearances and he had given up three runs in each of his last three starts before his last one. Thornton has given up seven runs in two starts against the Red Sox this season in two Blue Jays losses and they have lost four of his last five home starts.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I think the Jays have good value in this game, as the Sox are not playing well as of late and they recently fired their World Series winning manager. Thornton will be decent in this one, but the main reason the jays will win is because of their lineup. They will get to whomever Boston throws out there, as while the Jays are reeling the Red Sox look to have mailed it in for the season. Take Toronto in this game, as they will beat Boston and put a hurt on their more than slim playoff hopes.

Prediction: PICK: Blue Jays

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

You have to take the Over here, as the Blue Jays will snap out of their funk at the plate and in their last eight games at home the Over record is 6-1-1 .The Sox will score a few runs off Thornton, who will be decent but not great and in an AL east game where runs will be aplenty the Over is the solid pick.

Prediction: PICK; Over

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
