The Toronto Blue Jays begin their next series against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night at Fenway Park. This is a three-game series on the road before heading to Houston for another big matchup. The Blue Jays lost the first game of the series, 2-1, in a low-scoring pitcher’s duel.
To start out the season, the MLB AL East doesn’t have much consistency. Many of the teams are bunched up at the top with average records. Even Baltimore still has a chance to win the division!

Blue Jays vs. Red Sox – Best Odds Available
Again, oddsmakers have set the total very high with the volatility of both pitchers. Unlike Tuesday night, we wouldn’t recommend taking the under again. Toronto is slightly favored at the moneyline. That’s likely due to Jose Berrios having a much better second showing this season.
Sports Betting Picks For Wednesday’s Blue Jays vs. Red Sox Game
Blue Jays Runline: -1 (W)
Expect a little more offense on Wednesday night between these two clubs. Jose Berrios had a no-decision in his first two starts. That included a very early exit back on April 8 with just one out. He fared a bit better in the second showing, and we like his chances going up against Nick Pivetta.
1st Inning – Over 0.5 runs (W)
One way to play this is to select one of these teams to score in the first inning and potentially triple that money. However, we’ll actually recommend taking the prop for either team to score in the first inning. With how volatile both of these pitchers have been, there’s a good chance one team gets on the board early.
Lourdes Gurriel Jr. – Over 1.5 total bases (W)
Gurriel went 0-for-4 in the series opener with two strikeouts, but that’s not keeping us from trying again! He was simply too good in the prior series to be kept off the bags for a second consecutive night.
Nick Pivetta – Over 2.5 earned runs (W)
Pivetta’s been charged with two losses to start the season. Neither showing has been particularly great with four earned runs in each. While there’s only room for improvement, we’re looking for Toronto tagging him with multiple runs before he exits.
