The Toronto Blue Jays have quietly put together a solid season thus far at 37-35. Winners of six of their last nine, the Blue Jays are showing great value tonight as a big underdog to the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of this series Monday.
Toronto starter Henderson Alvarez is better than he gets credit for from oddsmakers, especially on the road. Alvarez is 2-1 with a 3.63 ERA in six road starts in 2012. Felix Doubront has struggled at home for Boston. The left-hander is 3-2 with a 5.59 ERA and 1.459 WHIP in seven starts at Fenway Park this season.
Alvarez has posted a 2.45 ERA and 1.037 WHIP in three career starts against Boston, allowing just 5 earned runs over 18 1/3 innings. Boston is 1-9 against the money line in home games vs. good power teams - averaging 1.25 or more HR's/game this season. Roll with the Blue Jays Monday.
