This season, MLB Toronto has beaten Boston on 7 of their 10 meetings, handing Toronto bettors 697 units of profit. This may be the first winning betting season headed for the Jays since 2019 when they lost 11 of the 19 matchups, but the plus money wins were enough to set the books back 231 units. Boston has been an underdog in each of its nine meetings this season (-454 units). How does all of this shakedown as we preview Blue Jays vs Red Sox series odds?
- Game: Toronto Blue Jays (50-43) at Boston Red Sox (48-45)

There are teams that thrive off of having time off, an important luxury to have this time of year. Others would rather keep the momentum going. That does seem to be the case with the Blue Jays who have won six straight games coming off a day off, or in this case, many days off, and exactly why the Blue Jays vs Red Sox series odds are worth knowing and understanding.
Toronto’s post-all-star schedule presents them with games against the Red Sox, allowing them to find that stride of consistency they’ve been searching for. That lack of consistency was what got Charlie Montoyo fired a few weeks back. It appears as if the Jays/Sox odds in this series will give us three chances to get the Jays at a price that is bankroll friendly.
If Toronto starts to find their groove, anticipate that their betting odds will not be as friendly down the road. The Jays went into the break winning 5 of their last 6 while Boston has dropped 6 of their last 7 since splitting with the New York Yankees at Fenway. The Blue Jays betting odds are certainly something to keep your eye on in this series and throughout the second half.
Boston’s Pitching Doesn’t Allow Doesn’t Allow for losing streaks
When doing a Blue Jays/Red Sox series preview, your mind immediately goes to the Red Sox games where they didn’t have enough pitching to get a big win, especially after a poor outing. Alex Cora’s team is just 3-8 after the game allowing five or more runs in their previous game and now they’ve lost Chris Sale again. This was a Sox team who was knee-deep in the wild card conversation after two dramatic wins over the Yankees a few weeks ago, but they were swept by the Tampa Bay Rays and were crushed in the return meeting against the Yankees by a combined 27-3 score in two games.
Early Betting on Jays Late Money on Sox
As we conclude our Blue Jays vs Red Sox series odds preview, we anticipate seeing wise guy money on Toronto, but not enough to move the Jays betting odds because the public money will be heavier on Boston, which is the case in most Red Sox games.
If you have to bet this game early, and can’t wait for buy-back money late, make sure to get it the minute the number becomes available because we don’t want to lay more than -125. At the end of the day, every Boston Red Sox game will be of importance, as well as every Blue Jays game. After all, both are hoping to catch the Yankees.Follow us on Twitter
