Blue Jays vs. Red Sox prediction and odds for Wednesday, May 3 (Trust Alek Manoah)
The Blue Jays are on a heartbreak streak, losing their last three games by a combined four runs.
After dropping the first two games to the Boston Red Sox, the Jays will need to win the final two games of the series to play to a tie.
Alek Manoah (4.88 ERA) will take the mound for the Jays as the turn to the top of their rotation, and the Red Sox will be giving the ball to Nick Pivetta (5.11 ERA).
Let's dive into the odds for Wednesday night's showdown.

Blue Jays vs. Red Sox prediction and pick
Alek Manoah has struggled out of the gates this MLB season, but I still believe him to be the guy that he was his first two seasons in the Majors. Tonight is a good spot for him against a Boston Red Sox team that he had a 1.04 ERA against in four starts last season.
I also expect some regression from a Red Sox offense that seems to be largely overperforming in the early goings of the MLB season.
Meanwhile, it's a complete different story for Nick Pivetta, who struggled heavily in his appearances against the Blue Jays last season. In four starts against them, he had a 5.95 ERA and an 0-2 record.
Let's not overthink this season's results so far. Instead, let's trust how each pitcher matched up against these teams last season. Believe in Alek Manoah to get his game back to where it should be.
