The Toronto Blue Jays are favoured at Fenway Park for the first time in over two years as they take on a Boston Red Sox team that is going nowhere fast.
The Blue Jays are -128 away favourites against the +108 underdog Boston Red Sox with a 10.5-run total on the MLB odds for Thursday at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. It is the first time since July 18, 2017 – 31 matchups ago – that the Blue Jays have been a road favourite against Boston, according to the OddsShark MLB Database. The Blue Jays are 8-4 in their last 12 away games, while the Red Sox have offered little value as a home underdog, going 5-15 in their last 20 matchups with the OVER hitting 11 times.
Toronto has been tepid offensively away from home, where they score 3.64 runs per game with a .671 on-base-plus-slugging (OPS), which is 23rd in MLB. But the pitching staff’s 3.50 road earned-run average (ERA) is fifth-best. The Red Sox are averaging 4.65 runs in home games and their .783 home OPS ranks a respectable 12th, but that’s been canceled out by a 6.50 home ERA, the worst in MLB outside of Colorado.
