The Toronto Blue Jays look to keep rolling after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Blue Jays have scored 21 runs in their last three games and six or more runs in seven of her last nine games. The Toronto Blue Jays is back to crushing the ball, and they’ve won 10 of their last 13 games when scoring more than three runs. Josh Donaldson leads Toronto with 72 hits, Kevin Pillar has 27 RBI and Michael Saunders has 15 home runs. Marco Estrada takes the hill, and he’s 5-2 with a 2.58 ERA and 76 strikeouts this season. Estrada is 0-0 with a 3.48 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 2-6 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series and 1-4 in Corbins last 5 starts. The Blue Jays are 21-10 in their last 31 games following an off day and 6-0 in Estradas last 6 starts. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
Both teams are heating up offensively, including the Blue Jays who have sniffed around double digit runs almost all of last week. This total seems a tad bit too low given the big ballpark in Toronto. I like the over in this spot.
