Kansas City Royals vs Toronto Blue Jays prediction

The Toronto Blue Jays are better than what they've shown up to this point, and I'd expect them to turn things around sooner than later. While the Royals are playing great ball through 29 games, Jonathan Bowlan hasn't pitched yet this season, and he's making just his second big league start for his career. I don't like small sample sizes with pitchers. I trust Yariel Rodriguez more, and the Blue Jays being at home doesn't hurt. Give me the Blue Jays and the cheap price.
