Baseball Betting – Boston at Toronto – Wednesday

May 20th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

Baseball betting favors Toronto on Wednesday as they host the Boston Red Sox in the middle game of a three game series you can see on ESPN. Normally the Red Sox would be favored in a game against the Blue Jays in bet on baseball odds but not when Roy Halladay is on the mound.

Baseball betting information tells us that Halladay is matched up against Clay Buchholz on Wednesday. Halladay is 13-5 on the season with a 2.65 ERA while Buchholz is 1-3 with a 4.45 ERA as baseball betting statistics indicate. The baseball betting matchup on Wednesday might not be as one-sided as it appears. Buchholz allowed only one run in seven innings in his last start against Detroit and in his last two outings has an ERA of 2.08 as sports betting statistics have it. Baseball betting stats show that in his last start against the Blue Jays he allowed just one run on four hits in 5 2/3 innings.

Bet on baseball numbers show that Halladay held Tampa Bay to just one run in eight innings in his last start. He has gone at least seven innings in 21 of his 23 starts, tops in baseball. In his last two starts Halladay has gone 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA as bet on baseball numbers tell us. In his only start against Boston this season, Halladay pitched a complete-game victory.

Baseball betting numbers tell us that before this series began the Red Sox had split their last 10 games at Toronto. Runs could be at a premium on Wednesday in sports betting. Baseball betting stats show that 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams in Toronto have gone under the sportsbook total. The concern with taking Boston under the baseball betting total is that they still have an offense that is Top 5 in the league. Even though they have slipped in the standings they are still scoring runs. Pitching has been more of a problem for Boston in baseball betting. Beyond Josh Beckett and Jon Lester the Red Sox really don’t have much in starting pitching. That is why they are hoping that the last two starts from Buchholz are a sign of things to come.

Toronto has good enough baseball betting stats to be better than what they are. They are right around the Top 10 in runs scored and runs allowed, yet they are below .500 in baseball betting. This team has simply underachieved all season and not only that, they got nothing out of Halladay at the trading deadline.
