Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays and Twins wrap up a 4-game set Thursday afternoon in Minneapolis. It was a solid start to the road trip for Toronto as they captured games 1 and 2 of the series 5-3 and 6-5 respectively.
The Twins defended their home field on Wednesday however with a 4-1 win. The Blue Jays have still won 3 of 5 however and can call it a successful visit to the Twin Cities if they were able to take 3 of 4 from the Twins.
Surprisingly only four Blue Jays players have ever faced Twins starter Michael Pineda. They have hit well though with a .381 average in 21 AB. Pineda’s opposition on Thursday is Clay Buchholz, who made his first start of the year on Saturday allowing 1 ER to Tampa Bay.
Minnesota needed a win Wednesday to get back on track at Target Field after dropping the first two of the series to Toronto. Nelson Cruz had a 2 RBI night as the Twins jumped above .500 on the season at home.
The Twins roster has faced Buchholz a total of 65 times, posting a .308 cumulative average. Cruz should be in line for a big afternoon as he has gone 5-15 with a HR in his career vs. the Toronto starter.
Pineda has won both of his starts so far in 2019, allowing a total 5 ER in 11 IP for a modest 3.00 ERA. Wednesday’s O/U is 8.5 and if both Pineda and Buchholz continue to pitch the way they have it should be a low score outing.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Blue Jays are 3-7 their last 10 road games
- Blue Jays are 1-7 their last 8 vs. a RH starter
- Twins are 14-6 their last 20 overall
- Blue Jays are 4-1 their last 5 in Minnesota
Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
There’s no value on the Twins at a whopping -185 especially considering Buchholz has pitched well and the Blue Jays have won 4 of 5 at Target Field. If anything, this is leaning towards a pitchers duel.
