The Jays are on a little roll right now and this might be a good time to get the Phillies who seem to be on a steady swoon after being such a good story the first couple of months of the season.
The ball has been flying out of the Rogers Centre lately which definitely favours the home team. They have a chance to really get going now.
The Phillies got swept over the weekend by Washington.
In a couple of games they were able to get some runs on the board but the pitching wasn’t there as they yielded 22 runs over three games.
Toronto’s pitching is not as challenging as Washington’s but at the same time the Phillies do not have a lot of premier hitters to take advantage of the ideal hitting environment
Eickhoff has not been terrible bye he gets almost no support at just 2.4 runs per game.
His last two starts have been really good, he ever beat the Cubs in his last outing.
On the road his numbers are terrible though with no wins and an ERA close to 7. Against a surging Toronto does not look like the time you want to bank on him getting his first one.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays have been really stepping it up against their division, latest example, taking three of four from Baltimore over the weekend – without the services of leadoff man Jose Bautista.
Yep, the offense came alive without him but he is expected to be back in the lineup tonight in a DH role.
As the pitching starts to fade a bit the Jays may be getting back to form at the dish.
Dickey got off to another bad start but has been very effective over the last month.
I am not normally a big fan but in this one he gets to try and fool one of the weakest offenses in the league.
The main reason to be leery tonight is that Dickey has bombed at home. Also, the bullpen has been shaky for the Jays all season long.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Even if the Phillies were playing better right now it would be difficult to make a case for them in this one on the road against a hot team with a pitcher that struggles outside of Philly.
I am not sure what their lineup will do against a knuckleballer.
The Jays are definitely the play in this one.
Dickie often gets burned by the long ball but against this lineup that is not as much of a concern. Plus the Jays have really picked it up over the last several weeks.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Blue Jays -1.5
Runlines are always tricky but I think this is a good spot. Even if Dickeys spots the Phillies something in the neighborhood of 4 runs I think the Jays can easily double that.
This one is a great over spot too, even if this is a rare gem by Dickie.
