The Jays host the Astros at the Rogers Center Friday night as they look to hold the AL East lead.
The Astros are super cold and have lost 11 of their last 15 games.
The Jays have won six of their last nine games and looked pretty good out there in their game Wednesday night again the Rays.
Joe Mosgrove takes the mound for the Astros, he’s 0-0 with a 0.79 ERA and 0.62 WHIP.
Francisco Liriano takes the mound for the Jays in his second start, he gave up just two over six innings in his first start.
The Astros have scored just 25 runs over their last 11 games.
It’s clear that their struggles have been due to a lack of offensive production.
They’ve been an inconsistent team offensively all season scoring just 4.3 runs per game.
Musgrove has had two starts for the Astros. He’s just 23 and in his two starts he’s been phenomenal.
He’s also faced the Jays already and didn’t give up a run over 4.1 innings.
He had eight K’s, one walk and gave up just one hit.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays have been somewhat inconsistent in trying to find their groove but are still managing to win more than they are losing.
They stay in games with outstanding pitching and have a dangerous offense that backs them up, despite under-producing based on expectations.
They are still one of the top offensive teams and have scored 16 runs over their last three games.
Liriano makes his second start as a Jay and looked great in his first start against the Royals.
The Astros offense is a bit different in that they hit for more power than the Royals but this should be another easy start for Liriano.
The only real threat is Altuve and he’s a big threat!

Free Houston Astros vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Offensively, the Jays are way more dominant than the Astros but injuries to Bautista and Pillar will hurt their production so their is only a slight edge here for the Jays.
Pitching wise, Musgrove was great against the Jays but Liriano was pretty good too.
This one will stay close but I think the Jays will come out on top because they are just hotter and Astros really can’t score right now.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Jays ML
This one is likely to stay super low scoring because the bats aren’t all there for both teams and both pitchers have done well so far.
Both teams can explode and the pitching is no lock but under looks good.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Jays 3-2
