Red Sox falter in 12th
Boston lost 7-4 in 12 innings at home Sunday night versus the Dodgers as the go-ahead run was allowed on a bases-loaded walk.

MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays are 21-45 in their last 66 games overall. Toronto is 1-5 in its last six road games.
The Red Sox are 1-5 in their last six home games. Boston is 4-1 in the last five Porcello starts on Mondays.
Neither pitcher is having a very good season and the Red Sox bullpen is fatigued from the series against LA. I'm going to say both offenses get rolling tonight and rather than picking a side, I'm going to say a shootout takes place and the over hits. I'd much rather side with the hitting here than the pitching.
