The division trailing Rays will look to spoil the Blue Jays charge toward the top of the standings, as the AL East battle intensifies.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa has not had a great year, as their offense ranks 26th overall in runs scored with 440 on the year.
Evan Longoria has put together a strong season, leading the squad in most of the offensive categories with his 25 homers, 61 RBI and .281 average.
Is the team willing to sign A-Rod and sell some tickets for the remainder of the year?
Drew Smyly had an excellent start to the 2016 campaign, with a 2.60 ERA and 41 strikeouts in April. Since then, he had not had that kind of success and his season ERA now sits at 5.14 with a 1.29 WHIP and a 3-11 record.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays have shot up the rankings, now sitting firmly in the Wildcard spot and just one game behind the division-leading Baltimore Orioles.
They’ve added some nice pieces for depth and the stretch run and didn’t have to give up much in the process.
Joining the Jays are Melvin Upton Jr., Jason Grilli, Joaquin Benoit, Francisco Liriano and Scott Feldman.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
Marco Estrada has been great since joining the Jays before the 2015 season. For this season, he holds a 2.92 ERA which is good for second lowest amongst the team’s rotation behind just Aaron Sanchez. Estrada also has a 0.99 WHIP and 115 Ks with his 7-4 record.
- The Rays are 20-31 on the road
- TB is 6-4 in their last 10 games
- Estrada hasn’t allowed more than 3 earned runs in a start since May 14th
- The Jays are 32-24 at home
Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
The Rays have been on a hot streak lately, going 6-4 in their past 10 games, but I expect that to be back down to .500 after this matchup.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Toronto ML
The Jays offense is too powerful in comparison, and I like the favorites with Estrada on the hill.
