Red Sox vs Blue Jays Betting Prediction and Analysis for 09/15/2023
At the moment, the Toronto Blue Jays rank third in the AL East ranking with an 80-67 record. After last night’s disastrous 9-2 loss to the Rangers, the Blue Jays need to win this game. This is because they are behind Seattle by 1.5 games in the race for the final AL Wild Card spot.
During last night’s game, the Blue Jay’s ace pitcher, Kevin Gausman was not able to deliver. In the end, he let 6 batters walk and gave up 4 runs. Tonight, Jose Berrios will be on the mound despite an awful season allowing 74 runs in 171 innings.
The only thing they have going for them is that they will have the home advantage at Roger Centre.
On the other hand, the Red Sox are not looking much better with a 74-7 record in the AL East. In addition, the Red Sox have been cleaning house and are hoping for a new start. Especially after firing the chief baseball officer, Chaim Bloom after their win last night.
However, we expect tonight will be different as they will continue to beat the odds. This is because Brayana Bello will be on the mound with a 12-8 3.68 ERA. In addition, Boston has won 4 of their last 5 games with Bello as the starting pitcher.
Red Sox vs Blue Jays Betting Pick
Game time: 09/15/2023 at 7:07 PM EDT
Bet on the Boston Red Sox at +155
According to baseball betting news, Toronto actually had a good season but are currently in a rut. They are hoping that Berrios and their current starting lineup will take them out of it tonight.
Toronto’s Brandon Belt will not be playing in game as he is on a 10-day injury list with back spasms. The red Sox on the other hand are scoring 5 runs per game and rank 8 in the league. Therefore, we predict the Boston Red Sox will win and cover the run line with a final score of 5-3
