Shane’s Free Pick
This is going to be a comfortable victory for the Blue Jays. The Rockies bats have been cold heading into this game, and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going against Ryu. Look for the Rockies to score only a run or two total. The Blue Jays are going to have no issue running up the score against Flexen and this will be a blowout victory by Toronto. Back the Blue Jays -1.5.
