The Texas Rangers travel north of the border to take on the slumping Toronto Blue Jays in the first of a four-game series.
The Rangers seem to have finally found their offense while the Blue Jays are struggling to find theirs.
The Texas Rangers are playing some quality baseball after their offense began to wake up for the first time in a week.
The Rangers are pretty average in both pitching and hitting right now, and it doesn’t help that Adrian Beltre’s three home runs are leading the team.
Texas leads the majors in quality starts, but the Rangers bullpen has let down their starters too many times this season.
A.J. Griffin, who is expected to get the start in this one, comes in with a 3-0 record and an impressive 1.04 WHIP. Griffin has only allowed four earned runs over his last three starts and he’ll now face a Toronto lineup that lacks the same firepower it did last season.
Toronto Blue Jays
As it usually goes whenever they play the Tampa Bay Rays, the Blue Jays were stymied offensively over the weekend. Toronto is in the middle of a nasty 3-7 slide over its last 10 games and continues to fall further behind in the AL East.
Josh Donaldson has continued the power surge that led him to the AL MVP last season, but the rest of the roster isn’t helping him out.
The Blue Jays are going to need to score some runs because R.A. Dickey is scheduled to get the start on Monday. Dickey comes in with a 1-3 record and a 6.75 ERA this season and was shelled in his last start against the White Sox.
The Jays have lost the last four times Dickey has taken the mound and they’ve averaged just less than four runs per game in his five starts so far.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Rangers are 4-6 on the road.
- Rangers O/U is 2-7-1 in their last 10 games.
- Blue Jays are 5-7 at home.
- Blue Jays are 1-4 when Dickey starts this year.
- Blue Jays O/U is 8-15-2.
Free Texas Rangers vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
The Jays have really struggled over the last two weeks and have especially struggled whenever Dickey has taken the mound. Griffin, on the other hand, is coming in with an impressive 1.04 WHIP and an offense that is averaging six runs per game over its last four games.
I think the Rangers will steal the first game of the series in this one.

The Rangers are playing great baseball, and the Blue Jays are terrible when R.A. Dickey takes the mound. I’ll side with the road team in this one.
