The team is averaging 4.70 runs per game and they're batting for .257 AVG, have 386 runs scored in 726 hits and 108 home runs, ranking #8 in offense in the league behind the Boston Red Sox.

BETTING TRENDS

Toronto are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

Toronto are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Seattle.

Seattle are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against Toronto.

The total has gone OVER in 11 of Seattle's last 14 games against an opponent in the American League East Division division.

Prediction

The Blue Jays continue to struggle as they have lost 7 of their last 8 games and are 1-5 in their last 6 games vs Seattle. Alek Manoah will start for Toronto and he hasn't pitched against the Mariners in his career which can be a problem for Seattle. The Mariners are sending Robbie Ray to the mound and he has been sharp lately allowing only 3 runs in his last 33.2 innings pitched. Expect another close game and with the Blue Jays still struggling to score I think the best play is the under.

PICK: Under 7 (-110)
