Baltimore Orioles +120 / Toronto Blue Jays -140 O/U: 10.5
The Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles will match up on the MLB diamond to kick off their series Tuesday.
The Blue Jays are coming out of a set versus the Yankees. Toronto fell on Saturday 13-3 but took the other two games in that set 6-5 and 6-4.
For the Tuesday outing, the Jays will go with Trent Thornton in the start. Thornton is 5-9 this year with a 5.04 ERA and 134 Ks.
Over on the Orioles’ side, they just finished up against the Tigers. Baltimore dropped the Saturday game in that set but won on Friday and Sunday. In the Monday finale of the series, the Orioles fell 5-2.
For Tuesday’s game, Baltimore will likely go with Chandler Shepard. In 7.0 innings this year, Shepard has a 3.86 ERA with five Ks and three walks.
The Blue Jays are 7-18 in their last 25 overall and 1-9 in their last 10 on grass. Toronto is 3-14 in their last 17 road games and 11-23 in their last 34 in game one of a series.
Meanwhile, the Orioles are 17-35 in their last 52 Tuesday games and 17-45 in their last 62 versus the AL East. Baltimore is 18-63 in their last 81 in game one of a series and the under is 5-0 in their last five Tuesday games.
Thornton logged 5.0 innings versus the Red Sox his last time up, striking out seven batters while recording a win. That makes one earned in his last 9.2 innings.
I like Thornton to keep it going here, so I’m going to stick with the Blue Jays on the win.
