Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays fly into this Tuesday night pairing sporting a 37-41 record that ranks them 4th in the AL East. Currently 15games behind the division leading New York Yankees, it doesn’t seem like Toronto will be making an appearance in this year’s playoffs. Granted, there’s still plenty of time left in the season. But from what we’ve seen out of Toronto all season long, it doesn’t seem like they have what it takes to get the job done. Notwithstanding that notion, the Blue Jays enter tonight’s road matchup riding a 3-game winning streak. To help keep the good times rolling, the Blue Jays will be sending Ryan Borucki to the mound this evening. Borucki will be making his first appearance on the season.
Players to Watch: Teoscar Hernandez (13 HR, 33 RBI, .263 BA), Yangervis Solarte (15 HR, 44 RBI, .252 BA), and Justin Smoak (9 HR, 37 RBI, .236 BA).
The Astros blast into this matchup sporting a brilliant 52-28 record that ranks them 1st in the AL West. With a 3 ½ game lead over the second-seeded Seattle Mariners, Houston has a decent lead at the top. However, they’ll need to keep winning to maintain it. And since they’re coming off a 3-6 home loss to the Blue Jays, they’ll also need a rebound this Tuesday night. The evening’s online baseball betting odds are siding with Houston this Tuesday night. But since they sided with them yesterday, can we truly expect Houston to come out on top? Charlie Morton will get the start on behalf of Houston. Morton is 9-1 on the season with 2.74 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Carlos Correa (13 HR, 49 RBI, .268 BA), George Springer (15 HR, 42 RBI, .265 BA), and Alex Bregman (12 HR, 45 RBI, .263 BA).
