He has a 3-1 record with an ERA of 6.67 and 15 strikeouts in 6 appearances against the Blue Jays in his career.

The Blue Jays get here with a 73-59 record and have won 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.66 runs per game and they're batting for .259 AVG, have 608 runs scored in 1161 hits and 159 home runs, ranking #7 in offense in the league behind the Philadelphia Phillies.

Kevin Gausman (10-9, 3.14 ERA) will be on the mound for the Blue Jays in the 1st game of the series. Gausman picked up the win in Tuesday's 5-3 victory over the Cubs, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out nine. He has allowed 7 runs on 7 hits with 1 walk and 3 strikeouts in 2.1 innings against the Orioles in his career. He has been charged with the loss.
Toronto are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against Baltimore.
Toronto are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Toronto's last 5 games when playing on the road against Baltimore.
The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Baltimore's last 11 games.
Baltimore are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.
The total has gone OVER in 9 of Baltimore's last 11 games against Toronto.
The Orioles have been playing great at home with a 39-25 record and 44-20 ATS. For this game they'll send Jordan Lyles to the mound who has been pretty solid lately allowing only 1 run in the last 13.1 innings pitched and the Orioles have beaten twice the Blue Jays this season with him on the mound. The Blue Jays will send Kevin Gausman who has been up and down this season and was pounded by the Orioles the last time. With that being said I think the play here is to go with the Orioles to cover the run line.
PICK: Orioles +1.5 (-110)
