Preview

The Toronto Blue Jays and the Los Angeles Angels will play the 3rd game of the series at the Rogers Centre on Sunday. The Angels beat the Blue Jays again 2-0 on Saturday's game to secure the series.  Shohei Ohtani struck out nine in seven innings and Andrew Velazquez homered.

They're batting for .227 AVG, 467 runs scored in 941 hits and 136 home runs, ranking #25 in offense in the league tied with the Toronto Blue Jays. Shohei Ohtani leads the team with a .265 avg, 27 home runs and 73 RBI. 

Defensively they are allowing 4.26 runs per game and rank #16 in the league. Shohei Ohtani leads the pitching staff with a 2.83 ERA, 167 strikeouts and 10 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:

Tucker Davidson (2-4, 6.23 ERA) will be on the mound for the Angels in the 3rd game of the series. Davidson took the loss Monday, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks over five innings in a 2-1 loss to the Rays. He struck out two.

Toronto Blue Jays

The Blue Jays get here with a 68-57 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.72 runs per game and they're batting for .265 AVG, have 582 runs scored in 1107 hits and 152 home runs, ranking #6 in offense in the league behind the Atlanta Braves. Vladimir Guerrero Jr leads the team with .285 ERA, 78 RBI and 26 home runs. Alejandro Kirk is batting for .302 AVG.

Defensively as they are allowing 4.19 runs per game and rank #13 in the league. All-Star Alek Manoah leads the team with a 2.66 ERA and 139 strikeouts recording 12 wins for the Jays.

Probable Pitcher:

Ross Stripling (6-3, 2.84 ERA) will be on the mound for the Blue Jays in the 3rd game of the series. Stripling picked up the win in Tuesday's 9-3 victory over the Red Sox, allowing one run on six hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out six. He has a 1-2 record with an ERA of 4.78, 24 strikeouts and 1 save in 9 appearances against the Angels in his career.

 

BETTING TRENDS

LA Angels are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

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

Toronto are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Toronto's last 8 games against LA Angels.

Toronto are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games at home.

 

Prediction

Believe it or not the Angels have blanked the Blue Jays twice on this series but I'd be shocked if that happens again. For this game the Angels will send Tucker Davidson who has been up and down this season and has an awful 6.23 ERA. Ross Stripling will take the mound for the Blue Jays who has been pretty solid and has allowed 2 runs or less in each of his last 6 starts so he should dominate the Angels offense and help the Blue Jays to avoid a sweep. Take the Blue Jays.

PICK: Blue Jays -1.5 (-115)
