The Toronto Blue Jays will be looking to knock off a division rival on Thursday night as they open up a key four-game MLB betting series against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
The Blue Jays won two of three games at Fenway Park when the teams last met in the middle of May, and are 8-1 in their past nine trips to Fenway.
Overall Boston is 5-4 against Toronto in nine games this season. The OVER/UNDER went 5-4 for totals bettors at the sportsbooks in those contests.
Boston hands the ball to starter Jon Lester in this one and he'll try to improve on his 7-4 mark on the year. The Jays have a losing record against left handed starters (9-12).
Toronto counters with Chien-Ming Wang, who will try to quiet the fans and the Red Sox bats at the same time. He faced the Red Sox several times when he was with the New York Yankees.
