Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
To me, this has the chance to be a good game. I do give the edge to the Jays in this game.
I do think the Blue Jays are the better team talent for talent, but the Mets have played better baseball this year.
This pitching matchup features two guys that have thrown the ball quite well this year. I look for Ryu to pitch a little better than Walker.
I will go with the Blue Jays on the moneyline in this one.
