2012 A’s vs Blue Jays Betting Predictions

Did you know that if the season ended Monday that both Wild Card teams would have come out of the AL West?  That is because the Oakland A’s are doing it again, stunning the league with surprising performances.

Matchup | Preview  

Oakland

All they do is win, albeit just barely with 5 straight one run victories heading into Monday (they are winning by one Monday night as this is being written).  Over the weekend they swept the Yankees and this team has lost just twice all month.

For Oakland it is all about pitching.  They have the best team ERA in the AL and no matter who they throw on the mound it seems to work.  Wednesday’s starter is A.J. Griffin.  He is a big rookie who has yet to give up more than three runs in his 5 Big League appearances but I bet you have never heard of him.  Last time out he gave up just two runs (0 walks) against the Yankees.  He is catching a break as the Jays will be without slugger Jose Bautista.

Toronto

The Jays were also feeling good as this series opened Tuesday night, having just swept the Boston Red Sox at Fenway – something they hadn’t done since 2009.  This team is still wracked with injuries but got a few replacement parts for the pitching staff from their trade with Houston.  Toronto is a team that everyone is expecting to collapse but they keep hanging in their.  This is a big series to help determine what they might do before next week’s trade deadline.

The Jays pitching staff is barely hanging on these days.  The injuries to three starters has hurt but what is killing them is the decline of “ace” Ricky Romero.  Romero has lost his last 5 starts and his current ERA is almost double what it was a year ago.  It is gut check time for Romero as he is getting outpitched by guys named Laffey.  If he keeps this up than he is going to become a joke.  Oakland is the lowest scoring team in the League so maybe that will wake him up.

O/U Pick:  Over
Score Prediction:  Toronto 6 – Oakland 3
