Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays

June 26, 2024

The Boston Red Sox prepare to face the Toronto Blue Jays in the second game of their short two-game series at renowned Fenway Park in Boston, MA, on Wednesday night. They throw out the first pitch at 7:10 p.m. 


On the ML, Bookmaker installed the Blue Jays at +130.


Boston Red Sox Betting Preview


Boston knows they need to win some games, go on a run, and try to at least remain within shouting distance of the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees in a very stacked AL East. They can ill-afford to slip up, and even when it comes to the AL Wild Card, they need to be within four to five games heading into September. 


Rafael Devers, a veteran leader on the team, leads the offense with 15 home runs. This season, Boston has hit a total of 88 home runs, and their team batting average is.255.


They have a decent lineup, and they've done a great job of manufacturing runs by stealing bases this season. They have swiped 78 total as a team. They know runs are hard to come by, so they have figured out how to take some chances here and there. 


They will toss out hurler Kutter Crawford, who takes the ball and his 3-7 mark to the mound. He's got an ERA of 3.59. To gain confidence, he needs to settle in early and get some quick outs. He has dropped three out of his last four starts. 


Toronto Blue Jays Betting Preview


Toronto, like the Red Sox, has not had a very good season, and they find themselves buried 18 games back in the AL East as everyone watches the New York Yankees try to run away with the AL East.


Offensively, the Blue Jays have struggled to score runs consistently, and that has been one of their major issues this season. Left fielder Daulton Varsho (back), who was out of the lineup for Tuesday's game, leads them.


His status for Wednesday night is unclear. He has hit 11 home runs this season to go along with a low average. 207. 


They need to start hitting as a whole and finding ways to get runners in scoring position. 


Yariel Rodriguez will try to win his first game of the season after going 0-2 so far. He has an ERA of 5.94.
