Betting Odds: Blue Jays (-130) / Over/Under (8.5)
Pick: Under 8.5 (-110)
Lets head across the border to take a look at the second game in the series between the Houston Astros and Toronto Blue Jays, with the Blue Jays looking to bounce back from an embarassing loss last night.
It does not seem to matter who the Astros put out there on the field... whoever it is will turn out helping them win games. Coming into Tuesday nights encounter, they sit with a comfortable 36-24 record, good for second in the AL West (3.5 games back of the Texas Rangers). Houston will not worry though, as there is still over 100 games left in the season to make up the ground on the Rangers, who are surprisingly playing as well as any team in the major leagues throughout the first third of the year. On the bump for the Astros tonight will be young right hander, Hunter Brown. After his impressive short stint with the team last year in which he finished the season off with a 0.89 ERA, he has followed it up by pitching well once again this time around. Through his first eleven games started this campaign, he has amounted a 3.61 ERA with a solid 5-2 record. Can he silence the Blue Jays lineup tonight and secure a series win for the Stros?

Toronto will surely want to amend what happened last night in the first inning in this one, where they let up six runs before getting the second out of the game. Despite the output last night nonetheless, they have performed great over their last ten games, with a superb 7-3 record. I am not sure that they will ever be able to catch up with the Rays atop the AL East with the way that the Rays are playing, but a wild card race is certainly in the cards for them if they can keep it up. Kevin Gausman will be the man given the ball tonight on the mound. Once again, he has looked dominant over his first twelve starts to begin the year. I am not sure what exactly changed and clicked for Gausman over the past few years, but whatever he has figured out has worked to a tee. Even though the bats have not shown up when he has pitched, as he only has a 4-3 record, he still has a 2.76 ERA with an imposing 100 strikeouts thus far. In his last outing against the Astros, he let up seven earned runs... can he deliver the goods for the Blue Jays tonight as he has done time and time again?
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- The under is 15-9-2 when the Blue Jays are playing as the home team
- The under is 9-6 when the Astros are playing as the underdog
- The under is 22-16-2 when the Blue Jays are playing non-Division opponents
After a beat down by the Astros last night, I expect the Blue Jays to show some fight in this one on their home field as they look to even the series up at one a piece. Looking at both starting pitchers, I love how both of them have maneuvered out of big innings this season, which bodes well when we are hoping to not see any crooked numbers up on the board. Give me the under in this one as I see a 3-2 type of game inside the Rogers Centre tonight!
