Toronto is 4-0 in their last 4 game four’s of a series and 2-5 in their last 7 games after losing the first three games in a series. The over is 7-1 in Toronto’s last 8 Thursday games. Boston is 5-0 in their last 5 games and 10-4 in their last 14 games against a team with a winning record. The over is 8-2 in Boston’s last 10 home games. The over is 7-0 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.
Boston comes into this matchup looking to complete the four game sweep, but the starting pitching matchup does not favor them. The Red Sox are starting Brayan Bello, who has allowed eight earned runs in 12.1 innings pitched this year. The Blue Jays will turn to Kevin Gausman, who hasn’t allowed a run in 14.0 straight innings. I like the Blue Jays -1.5 in this game.
