Bieber earned the win after he pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing four hits and walking one while striking out eight against the Tigers. He has a record of 2-1 with an ERA of 4.38 and 25 strikeouts in 4 appearances versus the Blue Jays in his career.

Toronto Blue Jays

The Blue Jays get here with a 60-50 record and have lost 5 of their last 7 games. The team is averaging 4.81 runs per game and they're batting for .265 AVG, have 529 runs scored in 998 hits and 143 home runs, ranking #5 in offense in the league behind the Atlanta Braves. Vladimir Guerrero Jr leads the team with .285 ERA, 68 RBI and 23 home runs. Lourdes Gurriel Jr is batting for .309 AVG.

Defensively as they are allowing 4.26 runs per game and rank #15 in the league. All-Star Alek Manoah leads the team with a 2.56 ERA and 124 strikeouts recording 12 wins for the Jays.

Probable Pitcher:

Kevin Gausman (8-8, 2.91 ERA) will be on the mound for the Blue Jays in the 3rd game of the series. Gausman did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing zero runs on six hits and zero walks over six innings in a 3-2 win over the Twins. He struck out five. He has a record of 3-3 with an ERA of 2.27 and 33 strikeouts in 6 appearances versus the Guardians in his career.


The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Cleveland's last 6 games when playing on the road against Toronto.

Cleveland are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games against an opponent in the American League.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Toronto's last 6 games against Cleveland.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Toronto's last 5 games at home.


The Guardians were on a 6 game winning streak before losing in the last game vs Blue Jays. They are playing great defense as they have allowed only 1.8 runs per game in their last 10 games. For this game they'll send Shane Bieber to the mound who has been solid lately but struggled against the Blue Jays earlier this season. The Blue Jays have struggled offensively in this series as they have scored only 2 runs so far but they're still ranking among in the top offenses in the MLB. Kevin Gausman will take the mound who has been insane lately and hasn't allowed a single run in his last 14 innings pitched. Bieber hasn't been the same guy from past seasons and was pounded with 7 runs the last time he faced the Blue Jays. Expect another solid start from Gausman and the Jays offense to do enough work to get the win. 

PICK: Blue Jays ML (-135)
