MLB Odds: Red Sox, Blue Jays Go Head-To-Head in Boston

The Boston Red Sox are trying to lock up the top spot in the American League East, but the Toronto Blue Jays would like to throw a wrench in their rivals’ plans. They’ll meet on Tuesday at 7:10 PM ET in Boston in the second of a three-game series.

JA Happ (9-11, 3.64 ERA) was unlucky to take a loss in his last outing when Toronto fell 1-0 at home to the Kansas City Royals. Over 6.2 innings, he allowed a run on seven hits, struck out six and walked two. The 34-year-old is 1-0 in three starts against the Red Sox this season, posting a 2.16 ERA. He’s also 5-4 in 11 road starts with a 3.95 ERA.

Chris Sale (17-7, 2.75 ERA) dominated in Baltimore in his last start. He scattered four hits over eight innings, striking out 13 with no walks. The Red Sox won 9-0. Sale, who reached the 300-strikeout mark, is 2-0 in three starts against Toronto this year. He hasn’t allowed a run in 22.0 innings against the Blue Jays. The 28-year-old is 7-2 in 12 home starts with a 2.81 ERA.

Going into this series, the Red Sox had won seven of their last 10 meetings with the Blue Jays.

MLB Odds: Postseason-Bound Red Sox Host Toronto Blue Jays

The Boston Red Sox are going to the playoffs, but for now, they’re trying to lock up the American League East title. They’ll try to get one step closer when they host the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Chris Sale (17-7, 2.75 ERA) reached the 300-strikeout mark with 13 strikeouts in his last start against Baltimore. He hasn’t allowed a single run in 22.0 innings against the Blue Jays this season. Toronto will counter with JA Happ, who has allowed just one run in four of his last five starts. This will likely be Happ’s final start of the season for the Blue Jays.

MLB Odds: Sale Aims to Dominate Blue Jays at Home - Chris Sale (17-7, 2.75 ERA) of the Boston Red Sox hasn’t allowed a run against the Toronto Blue Jays in three starts this season, spanning 22.0 innings of work. He’ll try to keep that going on Tuesday when the Blue Jays visit Boston. JA Happ will be on the mound for Toronto.
