Grayson Rodriguez gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 6.57 ERA and 44 strikeouts this season. This will be Rodriguez’s first career game against the Blue Jays.
Toronto Blue Jays Betting Preview
The Toronto Blue Jays have scored 7 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 4 straight games. The Blue Jays have lost 4 of their last 6 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Bo Bichette leads the Blue Jays with 61 hits and 30 RBI, while Matt Chapman and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. have combined for 100 hits and 49 RBI.

The Orioles are 9-4 in their last 13 road games and 20-9 in their last 29 overall. The Blue Jays are 41-18 in their last 59 Saturday games and 9-4 in their last 13 home games. The under is 7-2-2 in Orioles last 11 overall. The under is 12-5-1 in Blue Jays last 18 home games. The Orioles are 16-35 in the last 51 meetings in Toronto and 17-37 in the last 54 meetings.
The Toronto Blue Jays offense is going to wake up at some point, and these are two struggling pitchers where you'd expect the offense to pick up. Grayson Rodriguez has a 6.57 ERA and 1.73 WHIP, while Alek Manoah has been disappointing with his 5.40 ERA and 1.80 WHIP. I expect some fireworks in this contest. Give me the over.
