Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays will be coming to Houston on a rare winning streak, those wins came against Baltimore though, the worst team in the league. Staying on the road and taking on what might be the best team will be a little different. The offense exploded for 20 runs over the two wins but again you have to consider the competition. Vlad Guerrero had three hits in back to back games but did not go deep.
Clayton Richard had been easing into the season reasonably well but got hit hard by Arizona in his last start. He did not even last 3 innings and gave up 7 runs. His control is never great but he has been especially wild early with 11 walks in just 15 innings and an 11/11 ratio. Toronto is going to need its starts to give them quality innings in this series.
The Astros continue to play on without George Springer, Jose Altuve and Carlos Correia but they barely miss a beat. They have a commanding lead in the AL West so there is no reason to rush them back and they still have Alex Bregman who might be the best hitter on the team. They are getting enough offense and their run prevention is still elite.
Framber Valdez may not look like much physically but he can get the jobs done. They pulled him out of the bullpen to make a start last weekend and he only gave up 1 run to Baltimore over 7 innings. He only used 84 pitches while striking out 7. He can be effective and he just peppers the strike zone and dare opponents to do something with it. As good as Houston’s pen is it might actually be the weak link of the team. Again its all relative.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
If the Jays are going to take a game from Houston this seems like the spot. Valdez is no sure thing.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Houston RL
However, I see this more as an opportunity to take Houston where the number still makes a little sense. Fading Richard is a must.
