The Boston Red Sox travel up north to Toronto to take on the Blue Jays in the first game of a four-game series. John Hyslop breaks down the game.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Boston Red Sox Best Bet: Expect the Blue Jays Offense to Stay Hot

I was just telling someone the other day that people should bet more team totals in MLB. Honestly, they're kind of fun. And American too. We're talking about guys smashing baseballs. What's more American than that? Bud Light? With the strikeout prop market being in flux for another couple of weeks, we need something to get the MLB gambling juices flowing. Believe it or not, we don't have much longer to bet on the NBA. Not to be a downer but with every day that passes, we get fewer and fewer NBA games to bet. It's not our fault. That's just how the NBA schedule works. So for the first time this season, I am jumping into the team total market. Why the hell not? Especially when I found what could become the greatest bet ever made on any sport. That's pretty good.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Boston Red Sox Best Bet

Toronto Blue Jays Team Total Over 4 (+100) (Bet $100 to win $100)

*Odds available at FanDuel at time of publishing*

This one is at FanDuel because I like the whole number for even money. DraftKings is hanging 3.5 for -140 right now which is nice but laying -140 feels desperate. BetMGM does the thing where they give you multiple options which is cool but they don't have whole numbers. It should be noted that they have 3.5 for -135 which is technically better but still pretty expensive.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Boston Red Sox Prediction

Here's what I'll say about the Toronto Blue Jays. They hit bombs. Lots of them. In fact, no team in MLB has hit more dingers this season than they have. On top of that, they're facing a righty tonight in Nathan Eovaldi which is key. Of their 22 dongs on the season, 21 of them have come against right-handed pitchers. That's a pretty big percentage when you think about it.

I know the haters are going to say that Nate Dog just pitched against the Blue Jays and they only scored one run. That happened. The haters are right about that. But that game was in Boston. At Fenway Park. Everyone knows that is simply not the place you bet the Toronto Blue Jays to score runs. Their team totals are the best bet at the Rogers Centre where they're playing tonight.

So far this season, the Blue Jays haven't scored less than four runs in any game at the Rogers Centre. It's only been six games but whatever. You can only play the games on the schedule. They didn't make the damn thing. If they did they would play every game there. We're talking about a team with a .853 OPS at home this season. They rake and the last time Nate Dog went on the road he gave up two dongs to the Detroit Tigers. I'm just saying, four runs is not a lot in this situation and we're getting even money. I'm taking it.
