The over is 8-2 in Blue Jays last 10 road games. The over is 9-2 in Rays last 11 overall. The Blue Jays are 18-38 in the last 56 meetings in Tampa Bay and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Jose Berrios hasn't been as reliable as he's been in the past, and he's had issues against the Rays in his career. The jury is still out on Taj Bradley given that he has just 20 career innings under his belt, but he's held up well so far, and he has the Rays' lineup to back him up if there's growing pains at some point. It's just hard to bet against the Rays and their consistency, especially when getting cheap prices. Give me the Rays.
