Heading into the 8th inning , the Blue Jays led 3-1 and Marcus Stroman was dealing.Stroman was forced to leave the game with a blister while warming up for the 8th and the Red Sox didn't take long to strike.With a 5-4 lead in the ninth, a blown save by Craig Kimbrel was the nail in the coffin for under (9/9.5) bettors, capping off a brutal two innings.The final score read 10-7 Red Sox, but the game was hardly shaping up to be a slugfest in the early going.>> Sign up for The Action Network’s daily newsletter to get the smartest conversation delivered into your inbox each morning.The diminutive Marcus Stroman isn’t having the best year, but has been considerably better since returning from the DL. Let’s just say he was pretty good against the Sox on Tuesday.7 innings, 2 hits, 3 walks, 4 strikeouts, 1 run, 0 earnedHowever, whilst warming up for the eighth inning, Stroman was forced to exit with a blister. At the time, the Blue Jays had a 3-1 lead and under (9/9.5) bettors had just an inning and a half left if all went according to plan. It didn’t.Nothing quite like that satisfying noise of a Jumbo Dong off the foul pole — oh wait, never mind … it’s a damn net. The sound of silence struck Blue Jays bettors, but the under was still looking solid.A two-out Luke Maile RBI double in the bottom half of the frame neutralized any over/under bets on 9, but those with under 9.5 would need a clean ninth for the W.Craig Kimbrel was called upon in the hopes he’d get his 24th straight save. I wish I could tell you that Kimbrel fought the good fight and under bettors got their well-deserved green dot. I wish I could tell you that, but baseball is no fairytale world.Just like the Blue Jays Twitter account said, if you come near Smoak, prepare to get burned. I’m talking to you, under bettors.But at least Blue Jays bettors had a new life.Nah, the Sox jacked a couple more long dongs in the 10th and even put up enough insurance runs to allow for a couple of Blue Jays runs in the bottom of the 10th.Potential final score: 3-1 Blue JaysGambling Gods’ final score: 10-7 Red Sox The Boston Red Sox have survived and advanced after beating the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series, but it was anything but easy.The Red Sox hung on for a 4-3 victory over the Yankees in the Bronx as Eduardo Nunez threw out Gleyber Torres on the final play of the game, leading to a champagne-and-beer celebration in the Boston locker room.After Boston ace Chris Sale retired the Yankees in order in the eighth inning Kirk Gibson Jersey , Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel entered the game in the ninth inning with a 4-1 lead. Kimbrel opened the inning by walking slugger Aaron Judge on four pitches and then gave up a two-out single to Didi Gregorius. After striking out Giancarlo Stanton, he walked Luke Voit and hit Neil Walker to bring in a run.Gary Sanchez stepped to the plate with the game on the line and after falling behind 0-2, he drove a ball to deep left field to drive in Gregorius.With the game and the Yankees' season on the line, Torres hit a slow grounder up the third base line, and Nunez made the do-or-die play to win the series by a 3-1 margin.The play survived replay review and the Red Sox roared their approval.The Red Sox will meet the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series, and Boston has home-field advantage.

Those betting on the Dodgers have to risk $125 to win $100, while Brewers backers wager $105 to win $100.The ALCS is viewed as a toss-up, as both teams are minus-115 to advance to the World Series.The Astros are plus-210 to win the World Series, followed by the Red Sox at plus-215, the Dodgers at plus-333 and the Brewers at plus-375. PredictionsThe Dodgers are playing in their third straight NLCS, and they hope to get back to the World Series for the second year in a row.They would seem to have an advantage over the Brewers because of their recent postseason success, and they became a stronger team when they added Manny Machado in a trade with the Baltimore Orioles shortly after the All-Star break.However, the Brewers are on an incredible roll, as they swept the Colorado Rockies out of the division series in three games after beating the Chicago Cubs in Game 163 to win the NL Central pennant.The Dodgers have one of the generation's best pitchers in Clayton Kershaw, and he was dominant in the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves.However, the Brewers have a lights-out bullpen and the potential MVP in Christian Yelich.We see the Brewers rewarding their fans by winning the series in seven games.The Astros are a confident team, and they beat the Red Sox in the ALDS in four games last year. While both teams are explosive on offense and have good-to-excellent starting pitching, the Astros appear to have the better bullpen.While that should be a key factor, we see Boston manager Alex Cora giving the Red Sox a slight edge over his former team.The Red Sox take advantage of their home-field advantage and win the American League pennant in seven games.
