Picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: Blue Jays -250
You will not get much of a return when taking Toronto, but they’re going to sweep this series on Wednesday night. The lineup is very similar, but the Blue Jays have a tremendous advantage on the mound, so we’ll side with the home favorites with the high price.
Player prop pick: Kevin Gausman Under 6.5 strikeouts (-145)
Gausman done well in putting up a ton of strikeouts early on this season, but the Mariners are not a team that strikes out a significant amount. He has taken advantage of going deep into games early on, throwing more than 6 innings in four of seven starts. That might not be sustainable especially how quickly pitchers are being taken out of games in this era of baseball, which will impact Gausman’s strikeout total.
