Fister Has Quietly Been a Fantastic Play for Red Sox

After using 12 pitchers in a marathon 19-inning win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, the Boston Red Sox will need a steady start out of Doug Fister on Wednesday. Sportsbooks opened the Jays as +140 road underdogs with a total of 10.

Shark Bites
  • The Red Sox are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games when closing out a series.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Red Sox’ last eight games.
  • The Blue Jays are 0-5 SU in their last five games when closing out a series.

Joe Biagini is expected to counter on the bump for Canada’s lone MLB squad. Biagini (3-9, 5.01 ERA) struck out a career-best 10 batters in seven scoreless innings of five-hit ball in his last time out at Baltimore. The hurler has made five appearances against the Red Sox this season, giving up seven runs and 12 hits over 11 innings.

Fister (4-7, 4.19) produced the only victory for the Red Sox in a four-game set against the Yankees on Friday when he worked seven strong innings while allowing one run on four hits. The 33-year-old has been the best starting pitcher for Boston over the past two weeks since being claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels.

When the Jays travel to Fenway Park, low-scoring games are the story. In the last 16 tilts between the Red Sox and Blue Jays in Beantown, the UNDER is 13-3.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Toronto Blue Jays were listed as 163 underdogs on the MLB baseball moneyline at many online sportsbooks, including Bet365. The total was set at 10 before betting started earlier on Wednesday over at Bovada.
