Toronto is 5-1 in their last 6 interleague games and 37-15 in their last 52 Saturday games. The over is 4-1 in Toronto’s last 5 game two’s of a series. St. Louis is 4-1 in their last 5 interleague games and 38-18 in their last 56 game two’s of a series. The over is 22-9 in St. Louis’ last 31 games against the AL East. The over is 11-1 in these two teams last 12 head to head meetings in St. Louis.


These two teams played a very entertaining game on Thursday, but Toronto was able to get the one-run victory. Toronto has a very good lineup and will be pitching Gausman, who had a solid season last year. St. Louis will start Flaherty, who didn’t pitch much last season due to injury. I think we are going to see another game with plenty of hits, so I like this game to over the total.
