Toronto Blue Jays vs Boston Red Sox: Matt Chapman to Show Off His Skills in Our MLB Wednesday Prop Bet

Toronto Blue Jays vs Boston Red Sox Predictions


Key Stat: The Blue Jays seems to be picking up some rhythm lately

Tip Reasoning

  • Matt Chapman has been quite consistent this year
  • Brayan Bello (0-3) averages an 8.47 ERA in his first MLB season
  • The Blue Jays are coming on a 5-1 run


The series between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Boston Red Sox might give us several answers regarding the Playoffs battle. Unfortunately for the legendary Boston franchise, they will most likely miss out on the Postseason following their negative run lately. The team runs badly when playing against AL opponents who seem to get the better of them so far this year. They are currently 10th in the standings with a 60-63 win-loss record. On Wednesday, they will rely on Brayan Bello (0-3) who has been averaging a high 8.47 ERA in his maiden season in the MLB. He will need to elevate his game in order to defend his spot among the other pitchers in Boston, meaning that he will be under immense pressure at Fenway Park tonight.

On the other hand, the Toronto Blue Jays have picked up a much-needed momentum recently which helped them get a tiny advantage over the likes of the CLE Guardians and BAL Orioles. The Canadian squad is 4th in the AL holding onto a 66-55 record. Despite Astros’ fantastic form lately, the Blue Jays managed to keep their second place in offensive terms scoring 4.74 runs per game across 121 matches in 2022. Moreover, their hitters, Matt Chapman and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. are doing their best to make up for the inconsistency caused by their star player, George Springer. Chapman nets a .236 batting average scoring 0.58 runs per game this season. The 29-year-old third baseman is tied-19th with 24 HRs as he comes on a 3-game scoring streak against the NY Yankees. We will take him to make a home run breaking the rhythm of the inexperienced Brayan Bello.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Jose Berrios (9-5) might not be needed that much

  • Jose Berrios has been averaging a 5.39 ERA in 2022
  • Brayan Bello might drop down the overall quality of the match
  • The Blue Jays rely much on their offense, neglecting their defensive capabilities

The Toronto Blue Jays have been one of the most intriguing teams to follow this year. They are attractive in a way that their attack can erupt anytime during a game. The team went on to make a new franchise record for most runs in a single match (28) against the Red Sox this summer. Brayan Bello (0-3) is way too inexperienced for such huge stages, but that’s the way to develop him as a player and build a strong character. However, we think that he might be the main reason for the expected lower defensive quality of the game on Wednesday.

At first sight, Jose Berrios (9-5) should have an easy task overcoming Bello tonight, but he himself has been struggling this season. Berrios averages a 5.39 ERA and 1.37 WHIP across 24 appearances in 2022. He regularly pitches for less than 6 innings against low-seeded opponents, thus giving other pitchers the opportunity to get some playing time. Berrios might be averaging 4.88 strikeouts per game, but we seriously doubt that he will be able to live up to these standards on Wednesday.
