Betting on the Toronto Blue Jays (odds)
Regular Season Record: 50-43
The Blue Jays closed out the first half of the season by winning three games in a row against the undermanned Kansas City Royals at home. They are 4-1 in their last five games overall and will be feeling confident of their chances to win their first game of the second half against the struggling Red Sox. For one, Toronto’s offense has been bringing it for the most part of the season. So far this year, the Blue Jays are ninth in the majors in total runs (428) and second in batting average (.262). While it’s currently unknown who the Blue Jays’ starter for this game will be, Toronto is fifth overall with 42 quality starts. Alejandro Kirk and Vladimir Guerrero headline the run support system of the Blue Jays after hitting .315 and .271 in the first half, respectively, while combining for 31 home runs and 94 RBIs.
Betting on the Boston Red Sox (odds)
Regular Season Record: 48-45
The Red Sox are hoping the second half of the season will be much better for the team after closing out the first half of the 2022 MLB regular season, winning just once in a four-game span. Their offense has been salty of late, having been held down to just 3 runs in their last two games. In three of their last five games, the Red Sox scored no more than 2 runs. Boston, however, might just have the cure to its malaise, as Nathan Eovaldi is expected to make a start this Friday. Eovaldi is 4-2 this season with a 3.34 ERA and 1.14 WHIP. The Red Sox have also not lost in all of his last five starts, dating back to May. Rafael Devers and JD Martiniezheadline the run support system of the Red Sox after hitting .324 and .302 in the first half, respectively, while combining for 31 home runs and 93 RBIs.
The Red Sox win, 4-2.
