The Jays go into LA for a four game series and this will be game two.
The Jays are falling out of the playoffs quickly but still hold the final wild card spot at the moment. They have lost two games in a row and have lost nine of their last 12 games.
The Angels are out of the playoff hunt but caused problems for the Jays at the end of August, taking two of three games. However, they have lost seven of their last eight games.
R.A. Dickey will be getting the start, he’s 9-14 with a 4.60 ERA and 1.36 WHIP.
Starting for the Angels will be Jered Weaver who is 11-11 with a 5.25 ERA and 1.49 WHIP.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays, as quoted by Manager John Gibbons, have hit “rock bottom” or they at least hope they have hit the bottom.
They’ve been unable to produce offensively and have scored just three runs in eight of their last 12 games.
Josh Donaldson specifically is awaiting his MRI results and has missed three games. Prior to that he went seven games without a hit.
So without him, the offense looks unlikely to pick up from where it currently stands.
The pitching has also been horrific and the opposite of clutch.
The bullpen is giving up timely runs which make it nearly impossible for the Jays to mount a comeback.
R.A. Dickey is hoping to change the recent fortunes of Toronto but in his last start he gave up five runs over just four innings of work on September 5th.
He did give up just two over 6.2 innings against the Angels on August 23rd, so the team is hopeful he can repeat that performance.
The Angels are dangerous to play against because they have the likes of Albert Pujols and Mike Trout.
As bad as this team is, they can change the game rather quickly.
However, their offense has come to a halt, even more so than the Jays. They’ve scored just two runs in their three game series against the Mariners.
Prior to that, they scored just nine in three games against the Rangers.
The pitching has been poor for the Angels as well, giving up 18 runs to the Mariners and eight runs against the Rangers in game two of their three game series.
Weaver, however, is coming off an excellent two run, 6.2 inning effort against the Rangers and has pitched well in three of his last four starts.
His best start during this four game stretch for him came against the Jays, where he gave up just one over 5.2 innings.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

- Angels totals have been under four games in a row
Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. LA Angels MLB Prediction:
Both teams are struggling offensively so run production looks like it’ll be down in this one.
Both pitchers did well against each other the last time they faced off against the opposing team too, so that should work in favor of a lower run total.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 9
With both teams struggling offensively and Jays possibly without Donaldson this game could go either way.
The pitching matchup here does go to Weaver but for Dickey, it always depends on his Knuckle ball that given day.
The Jays still have better team top to bottom when it comes to offense and are desperate for wins.
I think they squeeze out a win in this one.
