Why Bet on Toronto Blue Jays

The Toronto Blue Jays have really struggled as of late, losing four out of five games to the Rangers and Royals. In back to back losses to Kansas City, the Blue Jays lost both by a single run. Toronto has struggled to score all season, as they rank 25th in the league in runs scored, and have batting average that’s ranked 21st.

The best option on the offensive side has been Justin Smoak. The first baseman has clubbed 20 homeruns and drove in 48 runs, while batting .305. On the pitching side, Toronto has a 4.36 earned run average, with 31 quality starts. Opponents are batting .251 this season against the Blue Jays.

Expert Pick & Prediction

This should be a pretty interesting game between two teams out of the American League East that have underachieved. The Baltimore Orioles are sending Kevin Gausman to the mound. In 80.2 innings, he has struck out 63 batters, and walked 39. Gausman is 3-7 on the season with a 6.47 earned run average.

On the other side, Toronto is sending Joe Biagini to the hill. Biagini is 2-6 on the season with a 4.45 earned run average. In 62.2 innings pitched, Biagini has struck out 53 batters and walked 14. Look for Gausman to be better than Biagini. In the end, the Baltimore Orioles win this game on the road. Bet Baltimore -110 over Toronto.
