Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
The Red Sox have to start playing more consistent if they wish to stay atop their division. Monday was a good start. I look for them to play sharp in this one as well.
The Red Sox are the better team and I think they will show that on Wednesday.
Robbie Ray has been really good so far. It is not surprising that most people are backing Toronto here. But, I am going to fade the trendy favorite and go with the Red Sox on the moneyline here.
I like the Sox as +130 road dogs.
