The Orioles continue to win games and playing great offense and scored 7 runs to beat the Blue Jays in the first of the series. For this game they'll send Kyle Bradish to the mound who's not having a good season and was already pounded by the Blue Jays the last time. Toronto continue to play great offense and currently ranking #3 in the league but struggled against Lyles. Alek Manoah will take the mound who has been outstanding this season and has dominated the Orioles in his career. The Blue Jays have a clear advantage on the mound so they should bounce back and beat the Orioles to tie the series.
PICK: Blue Jays -1.5 (-110)
