The Jays come into Fenway park rolling against a Red Sox team that has not been as good as of late.
The Jays have won 8 of their last 10 and 3 in a row. They look to have found their offence again and there is no sign of them slowing down.
The Red Sox come off a tough series against the Orioles and are looking to turn things up again against the Jays.
Estrada is pitching for the Jays with a 3-2 record and 2.43 era. Rodriguez is pitching for the Sox with a 1-0 record and 3.00 era. He made his first start of the season May 31 against the Orioles.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays have been winning consistently again thanks to their ability to score consistently as of late.
They’ve won 7 of their last 8 games and scored 46 runs during this stretch.
That’s well above their season average of 4.2 runs per game, which is 14th in the majors. They are looking to keep rolling but it’ll be tough against Rodriguez who was great in his first start of the season.
With the offence rolling again, the Jays have one of the best starting rotations in the league and their bullpen seems to be doing their job now too.
They allow just 3.9 runs per game which is 6th best in the league. They also hold opponents to just a .238 average.
Estrada has been one of the Jays best, with a 2.43 era, he is 5th best in the AL.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox score and they score a lot, as they lead the MLB with 6 runs per game.
This will prove rather challenging for Marco, who allowed 4 in 6 innings against the Sox on Aril 16th and shut them out over 7 innings.
That was a long time ago and the Red Sox have been pounding the ball all season long. In their last 12 games they’ve scored 82 runs, that is almost 7 runs per game.
They’ve done that quite spread out as well, with only 1 game in those 12 where they scored less than 5 runs.
They put up 19 against the Jays just last week over 3 games but lost 2 of them..
With their bats rolling and the Jays bats rolling, they’ll need a quality start from Rodriguez. The Red Sox allow 4.7 runs per game which is a lot more than the Jays allow.
Although this pitching matchup is fairly even, Rodriguez is just getting his 2nd start of the season and the Jays are no pushover.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
Both teams are scoring a lot right now but Boston has been doing it all season.
I think both teams end up getting at least 4 and the game will be close until the starters come out of the game.
The Jays bullpen has the edge on Boston here but Boston’s offence has the edge on the Jays.
Since it’s just Rodriguez 2nd start of the year, I think the Jays pull this one out because Estrada is locked in and goes deep into ball games.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Jays ML
Runs may be tough to come by in this one but I think both teams have at least 4 by the end of it.
Take the Over if it’s 8 or below. Buy the point if you need to.
