Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays Pick

This is a shocking price. I figured this would be -160 or higher we would have needed to find a juice reducer. This game has the lowest total on the slate with just a 7.5 run total. I think we see a scoreless second inning here and we bounce back on our NRSI bets.

Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays Prediction

On the mound for Toronto is Chris Bassitt. This guy owns Boston historically. Boston bats are a lifetime 4-32 against him which is a .125 batting average. Bassitt has been pitching great baseball lately as he has only allowed one run in his last two starts.

Last year, he faced Boston twice and went seven innings both times allow one run and two runs. He should avoid Tyler O’Neill and potentially Rafael Devers if Boston can have four batters up in the first.

On the mound for Boston is Tanner Houck. This guy has been nails all year long and looks to keep it going. Houck is pitching on the road where he holds a 1.66 ERA over 38 innings. Houck is likely to avoid Vladdy which is great news. With how dominate he has been, I like him to get a clean quick three outs for us. Let's roll!
