Shane’s Free Pick

Kluber is coming off a good start, but overall he has struggled, and he’s going to have some major issues in this game. Berrios has been better as of late and he’s going to lockdown. The Blue Jays are going to get over their season average of 4.71 and this will be an easy victory. Back the Blue Jays -1.5.
