Prediction:

The prediction for this matchup is that the total runs will exceed 8.5. Here are the reasons:

First, both teams have shown they can score runs. The Orioles' offense, led by Gunnar Henderson and Adley Rutschman, has been effective, while the Blue Jays have power hitters like Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Daulton Varsho.

Second, recent games in this series have been high-scoring. The Orioles' recent 10-1 and 7-2 victories over the Blue Jays indicate a trend of high run totals.

Third, Yusei Kikuchi's performance this season, with a 3.66 ERA, suggests he might allow several runs. Coupled with Cade Povich's unknown major league performance, the game could see high scoring from both sides.

Additionally, both teams' batting averages and slugging percentages indicate they have the potential to drive in runs, particularly in a hitter-friendly environment like Rogers Centre.

Pick: Over 8.5 Runs (+105)
