Rockies vs Blue Jays Betting Prediction

This game is going to comedown to the pitching, and the team with the big advantage is the Blue Jays. Freeland has been awful, and if he continues to pick like he has, there might not be many starts left for him. The Blue Jays offense is going to breakout in a big way here. Berrios is going to have another strong start for the Blue Jays, and Toronto will get the job done here with ease. Back the Blue Jays.
