Blue Jays Betting Preview
Toronto moved to 5-4 after losing to Anaheim. The Blue Jays had their four game win-streak snapped, and they’ll look to avenge that defeat here. The Toronto offense is scoring 4.37 runs per game, while batting .286, with a .347 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.79 ERA, with a 1.39 WHIP. Vladimir Guerrero has recorded a hit in seven straight games, while Matt Chapman has produced multiple RBI in three of the last four games, and leads Toronto in BA (.457).
Yusei Kikuchu (1-0, 1.80 ERA, 2 Ks) will take the bump for Toronto. The fifth-year pitcher was solid in his debut versus KC, containing the lineup through five full innings of work, and only allowed one run.
Angels Betting Preview
Los Angeles moved to 5-3 after defeating Toronto. The Angels look competitive early on, and that’s a beautiful sign considering the talent they have at the top of the org. The LAA offense is scoring 4.37 runs per game, while batting .234, with a .324 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.47 ERA, with a 1.20 WHIP. Mike Trout has come through with a pair of homers in both games versus Toronto, and he leads the team in batting average (.346).
Reid Detmers (0-0, 3.86 ERA, 7 Ks) will get the ball for Los Angeles. The third-year lefty did manage to strike out seven in less than five innings versus Seattle, but he’ll look to clean up the walk total in his home debut.
Toronto vs Anaheim Trends
Toronto is 4-4 against the spread this season, with a 4-4 over/under record. Los Angeles is 3-4 ATS, with a 3-3-1 O/U record.
Corey's Free Pick
When Yusei Kikuchi was slated to start last season, it often meant offense was imminent, and even after taking care of lowly Kansas City in his first outing, I think the Halos give him a run for his money here. LAA looks improved, and with Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout in your lineup, you will have a chance every time out. Take the Angels ML at home, and give the over a view as well.
