The Toronto Blue Jays have served up 15 round-trippers to the Boston Red Sox in five home games this season, which is important to consider when making your MLB picks on Thursday as the two teams close out their three-game series at the Rogers Centre.
Sports bettors will find that the Blue Jays are plus-115 home underdogs in the pro baseball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the betting total stands at nine in the market.
Let's take a closer look at this American League East matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction along the way.
The Boston Red Sox captured a 10-1 blowout victory over the Toronto Blue Jays as minus-123 road favorites on Wednesday, with first baseman Mike Napoli leading the way offensively with two home runs.
Over the last two-plus seasons, the Red Sox are 24-17 as road favorites of minus-125 to minus-150, with the under going 21-18-2 in that situation.
The Toronto Blue Jays are 9.5 games back of the Boston Red Sox in the American League East standings. They rank 28th in the league with a .231 batting average.

I'm going to recommend that readers back the Toronto Blue Jays as one of their MLB picks on Thursday, as they've gone 12-6 when revenging a home loss of six or more runs over the last two-plus seasons.
