The Toronto Blue Jays look to remain on fire after winning 12 of their last 14 games. The Blue Jays have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Blue Jays have won 12 straight games when scoring more than three runs. Josh Donaldson leads Toronto with 81 hits and 45 RBI while Edwin Encarnacion and Russell Martin have combined for 73 RBI. The Toronto Blue Jays have won seven straight home games. R.A. Dickey takes the hill, and he’s 2-6 with a 5.29 ERA and 51 strikeouts this season. Dickey is 1-0 with a 1.86 ERA and five strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 18-6 in their last 24 vs. American League East and 10-4 in Colons last 14 starts. The Blue Jays are 5-2 in their last 7 vs. National League East and 4-1 in Dickeys last 5 starts. The Mets are 10-3 in the last 13 meetings.
Dickey knows a lot of these Mets hitters after spending some years in New York. I like the Blue Jays to keep rolling and am taking the RL to give the wager more value.
