Toronto Blue Jays @ Philadelphia Phillies
The Blue Jays are not in a good way at the moment and it seems it’s only a matter of time before the coaching staff shake things up. A trip to Citizens Bank Park is unlikely to help their cause given the way Philadelphia are performing at home right now. The Phillies have recorded three straight shut outs on their home turf and will be hoping for a strong response from pitcher Zach Eflin. Despite allowing four runs in his last start against the Cardinals, the youngster is still 1-0 on the season with a 1.56 ERA. With Philadelphia giving up just 2.92 runs per game at home this season it’s difficult to see a stagnant Blue Jays offence breaking that trend in this one. Our projections have a strong lean on the home side and we’re happy to ride them out here given the form from both teams.
Tip: Philadelphia Phillies @ $1.78 (Crownbet)
Houston Astros @ Cleveland Indians
The Astros used a couple strong innings to propel themselves to an 8-2 win in the series opener, but that isn’t enough to scare us off this total again. Houston went 5-for-9 with runners in scoring position in that win and we don’t see them keeping that efficiency going, especially not against Corey Kluber. Kluber allowed just two runs in seven innings against the Astros last week and is 6-3 with a 3.17 ERA against them in his career. We are anticipating a better outing from Dallas Keuchel at the mound this time around and expect him to get back to his best against this Cleveland line up. The 30-year-old owns a 2.76 ERA against the Indians and was coming off two terrific starts prior to giving up those four runs in his last start. We advise waiting until the morning before placing this bet as we feel we could lock in some better value, but either way this is a total we’re happy to go with as we have it winning up at a combined 6.1 runs total.
