The team is averaging 4.72 runs per game and they're batting for .265 AVG, have 533 runs scored in 1015 hits and 145 home runs, ranking #5 in offense in the league behind the Atlanta Braves. Vladimir Guerrero Jr leads the team with .285 ERA, 69 RBI and 23 home runs. Lourdes Gurriel Jr is batting for .309 AVG.
Defensively as they are allowing 4.29 runs per game and rank #16 in the league. All-Star Alek Manoah leads the team with a 2.56 ERA and 124 strikeouts recording 12 wins for the Jays.
Alek Manoah (12-5, 2.56 ERA) will be on the mound for the Blue Jays in the 2nd game of the series. Manoah did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs on eight hits and one walk over five innings in a 6-5 loss to the Orioles. He struck out five. He has a 2-0 record with an ERA of 2.96 and 34 strikeouts in 5 appearances against the Orioles in his career.
Baltimore are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games against Toronto.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of Baltimore's last 8 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 7 of Baltimore's last 7 games when playing on the road against Toronto.
The total has gone OVER in 7 of Toronto's last 10 games.
Toronto Blue Jays are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games.
The total has gone OVER in 9 of Toronto's last 9 games against Baltimore.
The Blue Jays have struggled lately and have lost 7 of their last 10 games and 5 of their last 6 against the Orioles. For this game they'll send Alek Manoah to the mound who has struggled lately and the Blue Jays have lost in 2 of his last 3 starts including the 6-5 loss vs Orioles. The Orioles are back in businees and scored 7 runs in the first of the series. Dean Kremer will take the mound who has been up and down this season and has struggled against the Blue Jays. Manaoh dominated the Orioles the last time they met in Toronto so I expect him to have a strong start and the Blue Jays to win this game easy.
PICK: Blue Jays -1.5 (-110)
