Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox MLB Odds Analysis

Written by on April 27, 2015

If you are a fan of low-scoring, well-pitched gems, you may view what is going on in the AL East as a bit of a horror show. It seems that every game involving the teams in that division is a slugfest where the pitchers are just tossing up underhanded pitches to whoever is at home plate. Two of the biggest scorers, and defensively inept, the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox, meet up for a 3-game series, with the second of those online betting games going in Tuesday night in Boston.

Inside Scoop on the Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox MLB Betting Odds Analysis & Game Info

Date: Tuesday, April 28, 2015 Time: 6:10PM Venue: Fenway Park Opening Line: Boston -134 There were many people who believed that the Red Sox (10-9) might be able to make the leap from worst to first in the AL East, but they are going to have to tighten things up considerably if that is to happen. Boston has lost 4 of their last 5 games, giving up 37 runs in the process. The worst of that lot was an 18-7 loss to the Orioles that was nothing short of embarrassing. The Red Sox have put an impressive 95 runs on the board to this point in the season, but it will all be for naught if they can’t get their pitching sorted out. Boston will send Clay Buchholz (1-2, 4.64 ERA) to the mound on Tuesday, and will be hoping he continues his solid start to the season. His last start against Tampa Bay was a good one, giving up just 2 hits in 6 innings of ball. The Blue Jays (9-10) are a lot like Boston in that they can beat you up offensively whilst also having a pretty weak defense. The Blue Jays have hammered in 102 runs this season, but have given up 96 in the process. You never really know what Toronto team is going to show up on any given day, as they are equally as likely to get blown out as they are to destroy their opponent with overwhelming power. Like the Red Sox, Toronto needs more from their starting rotation if they are to keep pace in what looks like being a very competitive division. Toronto will have Drew Hutchison (2-0, 5.48 ERA) on the mound on Tuesday, and that might be good news. While Hutchison has given up a lot of hits in his starts, the Jays always seem to give him great run support when he is on the mound.

I expect this one to be a high-scoring series, and I think it will be the Red Sox who get the win on Tuesday. Hutchison’s luck has to run out at some point, and I believe this will be the night it happens.
