The Indians may have won the first two games of the series but it is hard to say that things couldn’t have easily been different. Cleveland gets full marks for their relief pitching and for putting a few runs across but these have been two very tight games.
A little tighter than I expected.
It is definitely do or die time for the Jays.
The Indians only score four runs but got two big home wins to start the series. There was concern about their pitching due to a couple of key starters being unavailable due to injury but thus far the starting has been brilliant.
The relief work is going to steal the headlines but we would not Andrew Miller doesn’t usually come into games if the team is down. The offense has yet to deliver.
Four runs ain’t much and all the production is coming from just a couple of guys.
Bauer gets the start in this one.
He has a high ceiling but baffles at times.
It seems like he is always looking for the perfect pitch, which might explain why he walks so many. His start was pushed back due to a minor injury.
We will have to wait and see if it effects his performance. With the day off between games three and four the entire pen should be available if need be.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays looked so good against Texas but have been flat through the first couple of games of this series.
The pitching has been more than good enough to win but scoring just one run makes it awfully tough. They are coming home at the perfect time.
The Rogers Centre might be the loudest MLB stadium when it gets rocking. The Jays should feed off that energy. They need some more life.
Marcus Stroman gets the start in what is now a super important game. In his short career he has demonstrated that he does not shy away from big moments.
He pitched in the Wild Card game against Baltimore. It was one in extras but he pitched well. He thrives off the crowd.
There are no guarantees but I have a hard time believing the Jays will not take game three and it seems the oddsmakers are pricing it that way.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
When a team gets down 2-0 and then heads home, most of the time there is an expectation of a win. Given how tight this series has been so far, things definitely could change in a hurry.
Toronto has been a strong home team all season long.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Toronto Run Line
Both of these games have been tight but this one looks like it could feel a little loser. I am definitely expecting the Jays to get a lot more runs on the board. Look for some early scores.
I think this one is priced expecting a lot of money to come in on the Jays or with a lot of other series implications priced in. The only smart value play is to go with the Jays on the run line.
