Blue Jays Look To Close Gap Behind AL East-Leading Red Sox

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 6/26/2013 7:47:18 PM

The Toronto Blue Jays tightened the gap in the American League East to just five games by tying a franchise-record 11-game win streak, but none of that will matter unless they continue to win games against the teams ahead of them in the standings. That didn’t happen against the Tampa Bay Rays, and now the Blue Jays are in Boston to face the first-place Red Sox in a four-game set that spans through this online betting weekend.

The Yankees are also looking to close the gap after going .500 in their previous 10 games, but it hasn’t been easy with the AL West-leading Rangers in town. New York will turn to Phil Hughes to get the job done in Thursday’s season finale, but they have won just once in his last seven starts. Hughes himself is coming off one of his worst start’s of the year after giving up five earned runs in just six innings of work against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and could be vulnerable if the Rangers can get to him early. Derek Holland hasn’t been much better for Texas of late, allowing four runs in each of his last three starts. However, he still has the better ERA at just 3.43, and the Yankees’ offense has been far too inconsistent of late.

The Angels are still 10 games back of the Rangers for top spot in the AL West, and visiting the team with the best home record in the AL isn’t the ideal spot to turn things around. However, the offense came alive on Tuesday night, and should be able to have its way with the struggling Doug Fister if they can strike early. Jered Weaver has struggled with injuries and inconsistency all sports betting season, but this would be an ideal spot to put together a solid start and help Los Angeles steal an important road win. The former AL Cy Young award candidate and three-time All-Star is just 1-4 on the season, and a win on Thursday would mark his first victory since May 29.

Toronto Blue Jays @ Boston Red Sox
Thursday, 7:10 PM ET

The Toronto online sports betting fan base was reinvigorated by the team’s recent run, but could find itself in a tough position by the end of the weekend if they don’t put together a couple of wins in this series. Chien-Ming Wang has been one of the surprise contributors to the team’s recent success with a 2.18 ERA, and this will be his toughest test yet on the road against a powerful Red Sox offense. Boston will counter with Jon Lester and while he is the bigger name, he hasn’t allowed fewer than five earned runs in any of his last three starts. Lester did pitch a complete-game shutout against Toronto earlier in the year though, and he has former Blue Jays’ manager John Farrell giving him the inside track on what will work against the opposing lineup.

MLB Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox - 150
