Cincinnati is 17-36 in their last 53 games and 15-37 in their last 52 road games. The over is 5-1 in Cincinnati’s last 6 game three’s of a series. Toronto is 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 17-7 in their last 24 Sunday games. The under is 7-0-1 in Toronto’s last 8 games. The under is 4-1-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

The Reds have not been very good this season and are going up against a good Toronto team in Toronto. The first two games of this series have been low scoring, but I think the Blue Jays offense will get going in this one. I like the Blue Jays to win by at least two runs here.
