The Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at the Rogers Centre. The two teams have split the first two games of this series. 

The Blue Jays come into this game with a 48-43 record overall and on Friday the offense looked really good putting up eight runs and that was enough to lead to the easy victory. The Blue Jays pitching hasn’t been great for the most part this season, but the offense has been quite impressive. The Blue Jays are averaging 4.59 runs per game which is 8th best in the league. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Kansas City Royals who sit with a 36-54 record overall but they were able to win the first game of this series. The Royals have a ton of players out because of the Canadien rules on the vaccine. Players like Whit Merrifield aren’t available for this game. In this game if the Royals want any chance to win this game they are going to need good pitching.

On the mound for the Royals is Daniel Lynch who sits with a 3-7 record and an ERA of 4.92. In his last start against the Detroit Tigers, Lynch went four innings giving up six hits and three runs. 

The Royals are 5-2 in their last seven games. The under is 4-0 in the Royals last four games on astroturf. The over is 4-1 in Lynch’s last five starts during Game 3 of a series. The over is 4-1 in the Blue Jays last five home games against a right-handed starter. The over is 8-2 in Blue Jays last 10 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.

The Royals pitching struggled on Friday and they are going to struggle in this game. Lynch is coming off a start where he gave up three runs and he‘s going to give up at least that in this game. The Blue Jays bats are going to be too much as they win in blowout fashion. Back the Blue Jays -2.5 to cash.
