Why Bet the Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays got a two run homerun from Edwin Encarnacion, and Aaron Sanchez was strong in the win on Monday. Now, Marcus Stroman will get the nod on Wednesday. Stroman is 4-0 on the season, but going against the Giants ace will be a challenge. Toronto’s offense has been inconsistent to start the season. This is the same offense that went to the American League Championship Series a season ago. Toronto is hitting .233 on the season, which is the fourth worst in all of Major League Baseball. The Blue Jays top hitter has been Kevin Pillar, at .291.
Why Bet the Giants
The San Francisco Giants have lost two straight games, and they cannot seem to get any traction going in 2016. The Giants offense has scored 162 runs, which is the fifth most in all of Major League Baseball. The Giants are also hitting .266 on the season, which is 6th. Brandon Belt leads the Giants in offense, with a .327 batting average, while Hunter Pence has provided the offense. Pence has 5 homeruns and 25 runs batted in on the season. San Francisco has struggled on the mound, with just 17 quality starts, and a team earned run average of 4.26 on the season.
My Expert Score & Prediction
The Toronto Blue Jays are a great offensive team, but they are going against Madison Bumgarner. Bumgarner has been solid again for the Giants, leading the team with four wins, an earned run average under 3 and 55 strikeouts on the season. Look for Bumgarner to reach double digit strikeouts in this game, and the Giants are going to get enough offense against Marcus Stroman. The bet for Wednesday in this game is going to be the home team, San Francisco Giants -122 over the Toronto Blue Jays.
The final score prediction: San Francisco Giants 4 – Toronto Blue Jays 3.
