MLB Betting Odds – Blue Jays finish in Boston
The Toronto Blue Jays (73-83, –20.12 betting units) finish up their 2017 regular season on the road this week, with a three game series over at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox (91-64, +9.12 units). Game 2 of this series is Tuesday at 7:10 PM ET.
JA Happ (3.92 FIP) is on the mound for Toronto against fellow southpaw and AL Cy Young contender Chris Sale (2.22 FIP). It’s been an unfortunate season for Happ, who has the Under at 15-7-2 in his 24 starts after receiving just 3.67 runs of support per game, leaving him 7.06 units in the red on a team record of 10-14. Sale is up 5.98 units on a record of 22-9, allowing just seven earned runs in his last five starts combined.
While the Blue Jays have been victimized by injuries this year, the Boston Red Sox are coming into this series almost completely healthy. They expect to have 3B Eduardo Nunez (.798 OPS with two teams) back in action sometime this week; Nunez has been out since September 10 with a PCL injury, but ran the bases Sunday and hopes to return in time to help Boston clinch the AL East division.
