Toronto Blue Jays vs Detroit Tigers Prediction 

Toronto comes into this game last in the AL East and they are only 11-14 on the road, but they have played very well over the last five games and their offense is hitting very well. On the other side, the Tigers are on a five game losing streak and their pitching staff is falling apart. Detroit will turn to Matt Manning in this game, but he has not pitched very well in his last four outings. Toronto is going with Alek Manoah, who has been great in his last two starts. I can’t back Detroit right now, so my Toronto Blue Jays vs Detroit Tigers prediction is for the Blue Jays to win.
