The Toronto Blue Jays look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Blue Jays have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Blue Jays have won five of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Josh Donaldson leads Toronto with 112 hits and 68 RBI while Edwin Encarnacion and Russell Martin have combined for 103 RBI. The Toronto Blue Jays have split their last eight home games.

The Phillies are 6-1 in their last 7 games following a win and 5-13 in their last 18 during game 1 of a series. The Blue Jays are 5-0 in their last 5 games following an off day and 2-5 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series. The Phillies are 0-6 in the last 6 meetings in Toronto and 0-8 in the last 8 meetings overall.
I've cashed many times with the Phillies and the big plus money during this nice stretch they're on. However, there comes a time when you can't push your luck. The Phillies are scoring a ton of runs lately and the Blue Jays usually show up offensively at home. With two pitchers who haven't pitched much this season, I like the over.
