Boston Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester is 3-0 with a 2.79 ERA in four appearances versus the Toronto Blue Jays this season, which is important to consider when making your MLB picks Wednesday, as the two teams face off at the Rogers Centre. Courtesy of SBR Forum, the Red Sox are minus-150 road favorites in the pro baseball odds, with the betting total sitting at 9.5 in the market. Let's take a closer look at this American League East matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction along the way.
The Red Sox have lost their last few matches, can they pull of a late surge?
The Boston Red Sox need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Red Sox have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 15 games. Red Sox have already been eliminated from contention for the American League East title and are watching their slim hopes for a wild-card berth fade away as they stumble down the stretch. The defending World Series champions hope to avoid a fifth consecutive defeat on Wednesday. Boston has scored only nine runs during its four-game slide despite the fifth home run in seven contests by reigning AL MVP Mookie Betts, who has eight RBIs in that span. Rafael Devers recorded his major league-leading 50th double in the series opener, the youngest Red Sox player to reach that mark and first since Dustin Pedroia in 2008.
