The Astros are 11-4 in their last 15 during game 3 of a series and 16-5 in McHughs last 21 starts. The Blue Jays are 2-6 in their last 8 during game 3 of a series and 4-1 in Dickeys last 5 home starts. The Astros are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Toronto.
The Blue Jays have played great baseball lately at home, and Dickey is due for a solid outting. I'll take Toronto and the small chalk to complete the sweep.
