Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto has had a disappointing season. Since the start of the year, the Blue Jays have been chasing a .500 record. The Jays are still in the pursuit of happiness as they sit six games under .500.
Toronto has not played well on the road this season, carrying a 21-34 road record; which is another reason why the Jays will not be in the postseason.
Cesar Valdez (0-1, 6.59 ERA) starts in tonight’s game for the Blue Jays. Valdez faced the Astros once in relief this year. He pitched three innings, allowing four hits, three runs (all earned), one home run and one walk in the outing.
Houston hitters are averaging .308 against him this season.
Houston has had a lot of going on since the end of the trade deadline. Some say (especially Dallas Keuchel) the team needed another starting pitcher to add to the starting staff.
Rumors speculated that the team was going to get Sonny Gray to add to the rotation.
The Astros ended up getting Francisco Lirano from the Blue Jays. A huge step down from what Gray brings to the table.
Brad Peacock (9-1, 2.62 ERA) will come back to the rotation for the injury plagued Astros staff. Peacock has arguably been the best arm on the staff.
Over his last five outings (three starts) Peacock has pitched 26 innings, allowing 20 hits, seven runs (all earned), one home run 11 walks and 28 strikeouts. Houston has won all five outings.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
As dangerous as the Astros lineup is, the team can be down four runs, and before you know it, they are up by four. Houston might cover the over by themselves against Valdez. Take the over.
