Boston is 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 5-14 in their last 19 games on astroturf. The over is 6-1-1 in Boston’s last 8 Tuesday games. Toronto is 9-2 in their last 11 games on astroturf and 36-16 in their last 52 games. The under is 15-5-2 in Toronto’s last 22 Tuesday games. Boston is 1-5 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

Nick Pivetta has not been good to start this season for Boston. He has given up at least four runs in every start this year, including 5 runs to Toronto in his last start. On the flip side, Gausman has been very good to start the season and held the Red Sox to just 1 run over 8 innings in his last start. Toronto has the better team, better pitcher, and is at home. I like them by 1.5.
