The perennial all-star Scherzer continues to dominate the competition as he put in another quality start, but was tagged with his second loss of the season in a 0-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants. He went seven innings giving up four hits and two earned runs off of a home run, while he struck out nine and walked three.
Scherzer’s stat line brings a tear to my eye every time I look at it as he owns a 13.50 K/9, 2.09 BB/9, 0.67 HR/9, 80.9% LOB%, 2.00 ERA and an even better 1.87 FIP. His .267 BABIP should regress a tad, but it should have the smallest effects on his stat line.
Washington has played sub-par baseball in the past week winning two of their five contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .234/.315/.335 to go with eight extra-base hits and 17 RBI.
Toronto Blue Jays
Estrada was solid in his last outing as he put in a quality start and collected his third win of the season against the lowly Baltimore Orioles. He went six innings giving up four hits and two earned runs that came by solo home runs, while he struck out a season-high nine strikeouts and walked one.
In 13 starts, the veteran has done an okay job with the strikeouts (7.26 K/9) to walk (2.29 BB/9) rate, but the fly ball pitcher has a 1.78 HR/9. The end result is a high 5.09 ERA and a slightly better 4.81 FIP.
Toronto has been playing mediocre baseball in the past week winning three of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .294/.349/.469 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 27 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Blue Jays +1.5 & UNDER 8 Runs
I love me some Scherzer, but I its hard to trust this Washington lineup to cover the run line even against an inconsistent Estrada, who by the way is coming off of his best start of the season. Washington should get the victory, but I expect Toronto to keep it close, while the total stays under the threshold.
