The Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays will clash Tuesday night at Rogers Center. The ball will likely be flying out of the park as baseball’s #1 and #2 offenses face off in this one. The Rays have scored a lead leading 775 runs this season. The Blue Jays are at #2 on that list with 757 runs. Their stellar offensive display this weekend saw them push past Houston for that spot.
The Jays will send Jose Berrios to the hill while Tampa will answer with Drew Rasmussen.
Tampa Bay Rays
As of this writing, the Rays sit 2.5 games back of the Giants for the best record in baseball. They are 5.5 up on Houston for the best record in the American League. The Rays aren’t playing the best baseball they can the last few weeks, however. They’ve dropped 3 of their last 4 and 4 of their last 7. For a team with a .622 winning percentage, that’s not great. While the Rays might be coasting into the off-season, you never want to head into the playoffs cold.
Tampa will send Drew Rasmussen to the hill for this one. They’ve won 6 of the last 7 he’s pitched.
The Rays can move closer to clinching their first-ever back-to-back division titles with a win against the 2nd place Jays here. It’s not certain how much their fan base will appreciate the accomplishment, however. It’s a World Series victory or bust for the franchise now. They’ve proven they can do everything else.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays scored 44 runs in 3 games against the Baltimore Orioles this weekend, with 2 of those games only being of the 7-inning variety as well. Somewhat hidden in Toronto’s offensive outburst was the 6-innings of no-hit ball that Keegan Akin tossed before game 1 of Saturday’s doubleheader went to the 7th inning and the Jays went to town.
As of this writing, the Jays are sitting tied for the first wild card spot with the Red Sox and 1 up on the Yankees for the final wild-card spot in the American League. Oakland and Seattle both sit 3 games back as well.
The Blue Jays are 11-1 in September and have propelled themselves into a playoff position as the Yankees have fallen apart. Their offense is on fire and there is no further evidence of that than the fact that they have only scored less than 5 runs in a game once all month. They scored 106 runs in 12 games so far in September, averaging more than 8 runs a game. There is no hotter offense in baseball.
Jose Berrios will take the mound for the Jays here. They’ve won the last 3 games he’s pitched but had dropped the previous 4. Over his last 3, Berrios has been good for 20.1 innings and only 5 earned runs.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Blue Jays are 11-1 in September.
- Tampa has won 6 of the last 7 when Drew Rasmussen starts.
- The total has gone over in 4 of Toronto’s last 5 games.
- The total has gone over in 6 of Tampa’s last 8 games.
- Blue Jays have won the last 3 games Jose Berrios has started.
- Tampa has won 8 of 13 against the Blue Jays this season.
Tampa Bay Rays vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
MLB Prediction: The Rays aren’t playing their best baseball right now but the Blue Jays definitely are. This will be a clash of two juggernaut offenses but right now the Jays are hotter and have more to play for. I like them on the moneyline to take this one. Taking the over also seems like a smart move.
