TD Ballpark will play host to the series finale between the Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night.  Boston’s start this season seems to turn around their last-place performance in the AL East last season.  Boston turned around their back-to-back loss last night after a 7-3 victory against the Blue Jays.  Their record is now 26-18 and still holds the lead in the AL East Division.  Toronto on the other hand won their last three games before the loss last night.  They trail the Red Sox with 1 ½ game and hold a 23-18 record.

Boston’s lineup has been at its best this season ranking 2nd in the league’s batting average at .261 and 5th in offense with 5 runs per game.  The Red Sox have two players in contention to win an MVP in Rafael Devers and JD Martinez further cementing how good Boston’s offense has been.  Devers leads the Red Sox with 11 home runs, leads the league with 34 RBIs while hitting .270.  Martinez for his part is second in MLB with 33 RBIs, tied for 6th in the league with a batting average of .333, and has 10 home runs this season.

The Red Sox will start with Nick Pivaetta on Thursday.  Pivaetta has been Boston’s best starter so far this season and the team hopes he continues with his dominant start against the Blue Jays.  The right-hander is 5-0 with a 3.16 ERA and 42 strikeouts this season.  In his career against Toronto, Pivaetta is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 11 strikeouts.

  • Boston is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games when playing on the road against Toronto.

  • The total went UNDER in 10 of Boston’s last 13 games on the road.

  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Boston’s last 12 games this season.

Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays Predictions 5/20/2021

Toronto for their part has been playing well especially at the plate this season.  The Blue Jays are top six in batting average at .252 and averaging 5 runs per game.  Designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero Jr. continues to flourish with top-10 MLB records with 11 home runs, .329 batting average, and has driven in 30 runs.

Steven Matz will be sent to the mound to start for the Blue Jays on Thursday.  Matz’s last outing resulted in his first scoreless start for the season.  It was his best season so far when he pitched 5 scoreless innings allowing just 4 hits and walking three while striking out nine.  Unfortunately, the Bluejays fell apart and lost to the Phillies 5-1.  The lefty has a 5-2 record with a 4.29 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season and this will be his second career start against Boston.

  • Toronto is 9-3 SU in its last 12 games at home.

  • Toronto is 2-4 SU in its last 6 games when playing at home against Boston.

  • The total went UNDER in 13 of Toronto’s last 19 games against Boston.

Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays. The MLB pick for this game goes to the Boston Red Sox.   Steven Matz has been inconsistent this season and will be questionable against a powerful Red Sox lineup.  Nick Pivaetta has been rock solid for the Red Sox since he joined last season.  Boston’s been one of the nice surprises so far.  Taking the game is the Boston Red Sox.  Final Score Prediction is 6-4.
