Houston is 78-37 in their last 115 Friday games and 6-14 in their last 20 games as an underdog. The under is 6-1 in Houston’s last 7 games. Toronto is 4-0 in their last 4 Friday games and 9-3 in their last 12 home games. The under is 7-3 in Toronto’s last 10 games. Houston is 5-2 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings. The under is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

This Blue Jays team has been one of my favorite teams to watch this season and is even more fun to watch when playing at home. We have a pretty good pitching matchup here, but Urquidy really struggled in his second start of the season. With Toronto being at home and Kikuchi on the mound, I like them to win.
