Toronto Blue Jays vs Oakland Athletics Prediction 

Oakland comes into this series really struggling and they have been one of the worst teams in the MLB over the last five weeks. The Athletics are 14-18 at home this season and their offense is just not producing right now. Toronto is last in the AL East, but they have played better baseball recently and just had back to back wins over Baltimore. The Blue Jays are starting Bassitt, who has been very good over the last few weeks and I think Toronto runs away with this game. My Toronto Blue Jays vs Oakland Athletics prediction is for the Blue Jays to win by at least two runs.
