Why Bet the Blue Jays
The Toronto offense has gotten off to a disappointing 2016 season. The Blue Jays were projected to be one of the top hitting teams in all of Major League Baseball, but come into this series 24th in batting average, and 12th in runs. Josh Donaldson leads the team with 9 homeruns, and has Edwin Encarnacion 24 runs batted in to aide him along. The starting pitcher for Toronto in this game is J.A. Happ. The lefthander has been brilliant for Toronto, and possibly the best on the team. The Peru Illinois native is 4-0 on the season with a 2.50 earned run average. Happ has struck out 25 batters and walked 10 on the season.
Why Bet the Giants
Matt Cain is luck to get another start for the San Francisco Giants. He has been just brutal for them to start the season. He is 0-4 on the season, and in 31 innings, has an earned run average just under 8.00. Cain has struck out 21 batters and walked 9 on the season. In his last outing, Cain only lasted 4 innings against the Rockies. The Giants are third in Major League Baseball in runs scored, with 161 on the season. San Francisco is batting .271 as a team. San Francisco’s pitching has been the downfall for the team. The Giants have a team earned run average of 4.41 on the season.
My Expert Score & Prediction
It’s hard not to bet any other way than the Toronto Blue Jays in this game. Toronto is going a long way to take on the San Francisco Giants, but the pitching matchup favors them. Happ has been tremendous, and his lefthanded style will throw off several of the Giants batters, and keep them off balance. Toronto should have no problem hitting off a struggling Matt Cain. The bet for this game is certainly an easy one. Take the Toronto Blue Jays -122 over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday in an interleague game.
The final score prediction: Blue Jays 8 – Giants 3.
