MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays are 22-46 in their last 66 games overall. Toronto is 2-6 in its last eight road games.
The Red Sox are 41-15 in their last 56 Wednesday games. Boston is 8-0 in the last eight Rodriguez starts on Wednesdays.
Boston faltered yesterday, but should rebound nicely as Sanchez has been one of the worst pitchers in baseball this season. Rodriguez isn't usually perfect, but gets the job done more often than not. With the moneyline being so steep, take a look at the runline because this very well could be a lopsided outcome.
