The Blue Jays are 6-1 in the last seven in game two of a series and 5-1 in their last six Saturday games. The under is 3-0-1 in Toronto’s last four in game two of a series and 66-30-8 in their last 104 Saturday games.
Meanwhile, the Orioles are 27-60 in their last 87 Saturday games and 16-42 in their last 58 in game two of a series. The over is 7-1-1 in the Orioles’ last nine Saturday games and 34-14-3 in their last 51 in game two of a series.
PICK: I’m going to go with the Blue Jays. Manoah has been doing well through his four starts so far, and should continue his success here. As for Kremer, he’s still searching for his first big-league win this year, back in the Majors while filling in John Means’ (shoulder) rotation spot. I like Manoah to post a quality outing in this one as he bags a victory.
