The Blue Jays look for a three-game road sweep of the Red Sox, and MLB expert Mike Spector weighs in with his best moneyline play.

Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays Prediction: Can Nick Pivetta and the Red Sox Avoid the Sweep?

The Boston Red Sox entered this current series against the Toronto Blue Jays 15-4 in its previous 19 road games. However, after Monday's 7-2 blowout loss and last night's collapse after entering the ninth inning with a one-run lead, the Red Sox are on the precipice of getting swept and are now guaranteed its first road series loss in its last eight (6-1-1). 

This is Boston's first time losing back-to-back games since May 30-31, and it has not lost three in a row since losing five straight from May 4-8. 

Will Boston do well to avoid another prolonged losing streak, or will Toronto complete the home sweep?

Read on for our best play for Wednesday's series finale between the Red Sox and Blue Jays.

Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays Odds and Prediction

If the Red Sox avoid the sweep, they will undoubtedly earn the victory in tonight's finale, as it requires beating Alek Manoah (9-2, 2.05). Manoah is 18-4 in 34 career starts, and his .818 winning percentage is the best in the majors since the start of 2021. In addition, Manoah has been nearly unbeatable at the Rogers Centre in his career, as his only career loss at home came in his last home start against the Yankees. One of Manoah's sensational home starts this season has come against Boston, limiting them to just three hits in seven scoreless innings on April 28.

Boston has been a much different team since its early-season woes, as its 28-11 record after May 17 is tied for the best in baseball. Also, since that time, the Red Sox have the best BABIP (.327), OBP (.354), the third-best slugging percentage (.468), and the second-best wRC+ (130). 

Toronto has had a hot offense of its own, as it has scored six or more runs in 22 of its last 32 games and has averaged a league-high 6.32 runs per game since May 24. However, if anyone can end Toronto's hot streak, it is the scalding hot Red Sox. Boston's 19-6 record this month is their best in June in 121 years since going 20-5 in June of 1901.In addition, the team is 8-1 in Nick Pivetta's last nine starts.

Pivetta has allowed three or fewer earned runs in 11 of his previous 12 starts. And despite facing teams with winning records in the Cardinals and Guardians in his last two starts, Pivetta has allowed three earned runs in 14 combined innings with 14 strikeouts.

Toronto has won seven of the last eight meetings against Boston, but the Red Sox have been playing too well lately to be swept this easily. Thus, we are enticed by their +140 moneyline odds and expect them to end a six-game losing streak at night against AL East opponents.
