The Braves vs. Blue Jays matchup for Wednesday looks like an ‘over’ play at first consider the way these two starting pitchers have tossed early in 2020. Hyun Jin Ryu has an 8.00 ERA while Braves starter Sean Newcomb is at 8.82.
Atlanta does seem to have some value since they are 6-1 at home this season. Toronto doesn’t even have a home. The Blue Jays had to play two games in Washington as the visitors, then switch dugouts the next two games to be the home squad.
Toronto Blue Jays
For being basically a homeless organization, Toronto hasn’t started off the season that horribly as they are 3-5 through 8 games. With no fans in attendance anyways, it’s not the worst year to play all neutral games.
Toronto is still 26th in the league in runs scored however. The Blue Jays have also dropped three straight by the combined score of 20-5.
It will be Hyun Jin-Ryu’s job to try and stop the bleeding on Wednesday. The lefty’s ERA the last three years has been 3.77, 1.97, and 2.32 but the transition to the AL hasn’t been kind with 8ER allowed in 9.0 IP over two starts.
Atlanta looks like they could be one of those teams that starts to get hot in an under-the-radar manner. The Braves just took 3 of 4 from the Mets and began this series with a 10-1 win over Toronto.
Atlanta’s 10-run output on Tuesday came on 13 hits. Five Braves batters had mutli-hit games showing the team’s versatility.
It’s up to Sean Newcomb to try and keep the Blue Jays bats in doldrums. The Braves’ lefty has been about as bad as Jin-Ryu while giving up 7 ER over 7.2 IP in two starts this season.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
Coming off an 11 run output total on Wednesday, you have to think the bats cool off a bit. The easy play is the ‘over’ with two 8+ ERA pitchers going to the mound so this is a contrarian play.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 9
Jin-Ryu is too good for nothing more than a league change to destroy his resume.
