The Blue Jays have not been that impressive on the season so far. However, one thing that the Blue Jays may have going for them in this game here is the fact the Red Sox have had some problems winning games on the year at home. The downside for the Blue Jays is a lot of those home losses have come against teams like the Tampa Bay Rays and the New York Yankees, which is definitely a foe that anyone can lose to at home.

The Red Sox are playing at home and that has been rough for them at times. However, one thing that the Red Sox do have going for them is the wins they have picked up in recent weeks against some of the struggling teams, but also some of the better teams in the league. In fact, the Red Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 games and that includes a win over the Dodgers.
The Red Sox on the season have managed to record a total of 888 hits with an average of .271 so far. The Red Sox have scored a total of 519 runs on the season with 135 homers. When it comes to pitching the Red Sox have done decent with a 4.62 team ERA, but have allowed the opponents to hit at a clip of .250. The Red Sox have struck out 938 batters this year with 313 walks.

The Blue Jays have managed to get a total of 729 hits on the year with an average of .231 this season. The Blue Jays have only scored 397 runs on 130 home runs this year. The Blue Jays pitching is suspect at times with a 4.86 ERA and have allowed the opponents to hit at a clip of .264. The Blue Jays have ended up striking out 766 batters and walked 347 on the season.

The Red Sox are coming into this game with a hot streak lately and that definitely helps the Red Sox out. What else helps them out is the fact they are able to strike out a lot of batters compared to what the Blue Jays can do and that leads to the Blue Jays offense not being nearly as good as what it could be. Final Score Prediction, Boston Red Sox win and cover the run line 6-3.
