Red Sox vs. Blue Jays prop picks

Best guess : Bichette over 1.5 total bases (-110)

When someone is as hot as Bichette right now, it makes sense for gamblers to just enjoy the ride.

The Blue Jays shortstop has been a hit machine since early September. According to FanGraphs, he lowered .423/.462/0.699 by a 233 wRC+ during this period. This was by far the best month of his season, and probably his career.

Bichette’s also had a lot of success against Boston in 2022. He has more hits (24) against the Red Sox than any other team and his 31 bases rank second.

The 24-year-old has only 11 appearances on record in his career against Michael Wacha, but he is impressive in his limited appearance. Bichette scored a total of four hits, including a homerun and a walk against the starter from Boston.

Bet on Toronto’s best bat putting in another solid effort on Sunday.

Key statistic: Bichette has reached 1.5 bases in four of his last five games and each of his last three.

Quick Picks

Jumper over 0.5 runs (+100): There is a lot of value in letting the leadoff hitter of a rising lineup score a point on this number.

It also helps that Springer himself has been a major reason why the Toronto attack has been so dominant. The center fielder has 10 hits – including four homeruns – in his last six games and has scored seven runs in this period.

Pham over 1.5 total bases (+205): Pham has been quiet on the platter lately, but a meeting with Blue Jays starter Kevin Gausman could lift him out of his slump.

The Red Sox-outfielder has eight hits, including a double and homer, in 18 at bats against Gausman. With opportunities like this, it’s hard not to at least entertain Pham in a matchup in which he has been historically successful.
