Teams often go through long spells of futility, which makes their return to prominence all the more exciting. MLB betting fans only need to see and hear the crowds at the Rogers Center to know that the fans of the Toronto Blue Jays are ready for their team to shine once more. The Jays will head down south to start the week, and will take on the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.

The final nail is not quite yet in the coffin, but the Toronto Blue Jays (82-61) came pretty close to burying the New York Yankees in the AL East over the weekend. The Jays went into Yankee Stadium and came away with 3 wins out of the 4 game series. On the downside, it looks as though Troy Tulowitzki might be done for the regular season, although the hope is that he will be healthy again in time for the playoffs. It was his loss that seemed to knock some of the steam out of the Jays, as it really did look as though they were headed for the sweep.Toronto were as offensively dominating as it gets through the first 3 games of that series, which has to be something that the Braves pitching staff is looking at with a little trepidation. Mark Buehrle (14-7, 3.72 ERA) will start for the Jays, who now have a 3.5 game lead atop the division.If it’s positives you are looking for, you may want to look at some team other than the Atlanta Braves (56-88). This is a team that has found all new ways to lose, including a total collapse against the New York Mets on Sunday. Up 7-4 and with 2 outs in the 9th inning, the Braves somehow managed to lose 10-7, allowing the Mets to complete the 4-game sweep. The sad part is that the young Braves pitching staff has been putting in some quality efforts, but it is the bullpen that is consistently letting the side down.The prospect of getting shelled by the Toronto Blue Jays is not something that this team will be looking forward to, but it seems almost inevitable. Julio Teheran (10-7, 4.38 ERA) is coming into this one after posting back to back quality starts.
