The Line: San Francisco Giants +100 / Toronto Blue Jays -120 --- Over/Under: 8 See the Latest Odds
The Toronto Blue Jays look to continue their dominance on the hill as they send JA Happ to the mound on Tuesday to take on the San Francisco Giants and Matt Cain.
The Blue Jays are known for their big bats and high run output but they have started to find new ways to win games as their starting rotation has been the league’s best in the early stages of May and will look for another extended outing from their starter with Happ going tonight. Despite the strong outings from their starters though, the Jays bullpen has been woeful this season and will need to address some issues in a hurry as they can ill afford to lose so many games in the late stages and after sending Ben Revere packing for Drew Storen and moving Liam Hendriks the concerns for the Jays are starting to mount. The offense meanwhile continues to thrive and with a shadow of Matt Cain throwing at them tonight it could be a party in McCovey Cove.

The Giants went into Monday night’s outing sitting with a 17-16 record but Jake Peavy’s slow start plagued them early and now with an 0-4 Matt Cain going to the mound it could be another tough outing for the black and orange. San Francisco is still a very good ball club and will be right in the mix in the NL West all season long but it is clear they need to add a piece or two to their rotation as they are weak after Madison Bumgarner, and while Jeff Samardzija isn’t a slouch and Johnny Cueto has pitched well it is clear that MadBum is still the guy and that their four and five options aren’t great.
The Blue Jays are 6-0 in Happ’s last six starts against a team with a winning record, 5-1 in his last six starts on four days rest, but 1-7 in his last eight starts on the road while the Giants are 6-0 in their last six home games against a lefty, 46-18 in their last 64 interleague games, and 5-2 in their last seven home games. This should be a better outing from the Giants but Happ has been pitching well and I think he gives the Jays the edge here once again as they grab another big road
