Milwaukee Brewers vs Toronto Blue Jays Prediction 

Toronto was able to stay hot with their win on Tuesday and they will try to extend their streak of not losing a series here. The Blue Jays are 17-19 on the road and they are starting Chris Bassitt, who has been great in his last four outings. Milwaukee is 19-11 at home this year and they have a nice lead in the NL Central, but they are going with Tobias Myers. Myers has shown some really good signs this year, but he has also had some struggles, so you never know how a start is going to go for him. Toronto is the hotter team right now and Bassitt is in a groove, so my Toronto Blue Jays vs Milwaukee Brewers prediction is for Toronto to win on the road.
