Toronto is 4-1 in their last 5 Wednesday games and 6-3 in their last 9 games. The under is 9-3-1 in Toronto’s last 13 games. Boston is 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 game three’s of a series. The over is 11-4 in Boston’s last 15 games. The over is 6-0 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
Boston has won the first two games in this series and they will look to make it three in a row in this game. The first two games in this series have been high scoring and the over has hit in the last 6 matchups between these two teams. Alek Manoah has pitched well for the Blue Jays in his last two starts, allowing two earned runs over 12 innings of work. The Red Sox will be starting Nick Pivetta, who has allowed 13 earned runs in his last 14.2 innings. I think we are going to see another high scoring game in this matchup, so I am taking the over.
