Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays Prediction 

Boston comes into this game playing some of their best baseball of the season and they are 21-15 on the road. Toronto has played decently well over the last two weeks, but they are just 18-18 at home. The Red Sox will look to stay hot in this matchup, but they are starting Bello, who has been very bad over his last few starts. The Blue Jays are going with Gausman, who has been mostly good in recent performances. I really don’t like what I have seen from Bello recently, so my Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays prediction is for the Blue Jays to win.
