Blue Jays' Gaviglio to start Saturday versus Red Sox

Sam Gaviglio is expected to start Saturday against the Red Sox in place of Marco Estrada (glute). He'll be pitching on just two days' rest, but Gaviglio threw just 48 pitches Wednesday when he got lit up for six runs over 1 2/3 innings against the Braves. It should go without saying that fantasy owners should steer clear of him.

Red Sox' Rodriguez combines to shut out Rangers

Eduardo Rodriguez pitched 5 2/3 innings and combined with four relievers on a shutout of the Rangers on Monday. Rodriguez ended June on a sour note, but he's up to 11 2/3 scoreless innings to begin July, bringing his ERA back down to 3.62. He's a good play against the Blue Jays in his final start before the break.

MLB Betting Trends

Toronto

The Blue Jays have won four of Gaviglio's last five starts.

Boston

The Red Sox are a perfect 4-0 in their last four games coming off a loss.

Prediction:

The over is a perfect 8-0 in the last eight meetings between these two teams at Fenway and 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams overall. The over is also 5-0 in Gaviglio's last five road starts and 4-1 in the Blue Jays' last five road games. On the other side, the over is 4-0 in the Red Sox' last four divisional games and is 6-2 in their last eight games overall.

 

The Pick: Blue Jays/Red Sox over 10
