The Boston Red Sox the Toronto Blue Jays will meet for game one of their weekend series from Fenway Park. All odds for this game can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
For the second year in a row the Red Sox are limping to the finish with a miserable September. They are trying at this point to just stay out of last place. They are 2-8 in their last 10 games and their starting pitching staff and the lack of success it has had has been a big reason for their demise. Boston will send Felix Doubront to the mound tonight who has lost his last three decisions, in 130 innings of work Doubront is pitching to a 5.03 ERA.
The Blue Jays have been around the .500 mark it seems for a while now, but have taken a step in the other direction this season. They are just 27-41 on the road this season and sit in dead last in the AL East. Tonight Toronto will start Henderson Alvarez was lost has lost his last five decisions. In 155 innings of work Alvarez is pitching to a 5.04 ERA.
Boston is 8-20 in their last 28 games overall, 1-5 in their last six games against a right handed starter, and 1-4 in Doubront’s last five starts following a team loss their prior game. Toronto is 7-16 in their last 23 games as an underdog, 8-21 in their last 29 road games, and 1-5 in Alvarez’s last six starts. Toronto is 5-2 in their last seven games in Boston.
This is a tough game to pick merely because both teams are playing terrible right now. With being this is the case we will take Toronto as a money line value pack on the road with sportsbook betting.
