Preview

The Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays will play the 3rd game of the series at the Tropicana Field on Wednesday night. Toronto won the first 2 games of the series 6-2 and 6-5.  George Springer hit a two-run homer to force extra innings, Raimel Taipa hit a game-ending sacrifice fly in the 10th to win the game.

Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox get to this game with a 7-11 record and are 4-7 on the road. The team is averaging 3.63 runs and allowing 4.12 runs per game. Alex Verdugo is leading the team with 3 home runs and 13 RBI while Xander Bogaerts is batting for .362 AVG.

Nathan Eovaldi leads the pitching staff with 1 win recorded and 3.32 ERA and 24 strikeouts

Probable Pitcher: 

Michael Wacha (1-0, 1.88 ERA) will take the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Red Sox. Wacha allowed two runs on three hits over five innings Friday to earn the victory in Tampa Bay. He walked two and struck out three. He started 2 games against the Blue Jays last season and had a 6.75 ERA across 8 innings pitched.

Toronto Blue Jays

The Blue Jays get here with a 12-6 record and are 6-2 at home. The team is averaging 4.13 runs while allowing 3.82 runs per game. Vladimir Guerrero leads the team, batting for a .344 avg and has 12 RBI with 5 home runs.

Right-hander Kevin Gausman allowed one unearned run and four hits in six innings. He walked none and matched his season high with nine strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher:

Ross Stripling (0-0, 4.50 ERA) will be on the mound for the Blue Jays in the 3rd game of the series. Stripling didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 4-3 win over the Astros, giving up three runs on five hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out two. He has struggled against the Red Sox, in his last 3 games he allowed 16 runs in 9 innings pitched.

BETTING TRENDS

Boston are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games.

Boston are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against Toronto.

Toronto are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games.

Toronto are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games at home.

Prediction

The Red Sox finally were able to score more than 2 runs in a game but weren't enough to win the game. The Blue Jays continue to be great offensively as they have scored at least 6 runs in their last 3 games but they will face Michael Wacha who has been pretty good this season. It's hard to sweep any team so I'm going to take the plus money with the Red Sox this time.

PICK: Red Sox ML (+115)
