The Toronto Blue Jays will try to rebound from Thursday’s 8-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox whenever they open a three-game weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles on Friday as -120 favourites on the MLB odds at sportsbooks monitored by
Toronto blew an early 6-1 lead to Thursday’s defeat as a +115 underdog, but maintains a respectable 5-3 record in its last eight home contests going into Friday night’s Orioles vs. Blue Jays gambling matchup in Rogers Centre.
Despite generating offence, the Blue Jays have struggled with balancing in outings. The group has racked up 6.75 runs per game over its past 12 contests, but with competitions tallying 71 total runs during that stretch Toronto continues to be made to settle for a middling 6-6 record. However, the OVER has paid out in totals betting, going 16-5-1 from the past 22 competitions of Toronto.
After dropping two of three to start their present six-game road excursion, the Orioles arrive. Baltimore tallied a 9-6 victory in Wednesday’s series finale to avoid the sweep, but the Orioles have been road performers of late.
Baltimore has come in 12 straight road series since the very first week of the season. The Orioles’ latest road series win came in the start of April in Toronto, when they posted victories with each victory, through a three-game set.
If the Blue Jays visited in mid-June the Orioles returned to their struggles against Toronto. The Blue Jays took two of three from the AL East basement-dwellers, and have posted wins in 19 of 28 meetings with the Orioles according to the OddsShark MLB Database.
The Blue Jays will need a strong outing from Aaron Sanchez, who’s expected for the call in Friday’s series opener. The right-hander is coming off the worst month of his MLB career in June, amassing a bloated 12.00 ERA in 27 innings of work over six starts. Sanchez has surrendered 27 total earned runs.
However, Sanchez has been steady from the Orioles, limiting them to five total earned runs in 18.1 innings over his past three starts against them, but he made the win in merely one of these contests.
