Blue Jays VS Athletics Picks & Predictions
Moneyline/Runline Pick: Toronto Blue Jays (ML/-1.5)
Looking to replicate their efforts from last night’s opening tilt, back the Toronto Blue Jays to pull out the road victory as they cover the runline as favourites against the Athletics.
While they emerged with the win by the skin of their teeth in last nights extra innings clash, the Blue Jays are poised to comfortably gain the upper hand in tonight’s battle. With terrific offensive production coming from their late season call ups like Davis Schneider, Ernie Clement, and Spencer Horwitz, the Jays have had new life breathed into their season late in the year.
Facing an A’s squad that has failed to cover in 50.4% of games as an underdog while having had the odds against them more times than any other team in the league this season, bank on them to once again flounder as they Jays reign supreme in tonight’s matchup.
Hammer the Blue Jays runline in tonight’s tilt as they continue to make an aggressive push toward the postseason, securing you an easy payday in the process with this winning wager.
Over/Under Pick: Over 8 Runs
While last night’s matchup needed extra innings in order for Over eight runs to be scored, look for the runs scored to pile up quickly as the Blue Jays and Athletics combine for more than eight total runs this evening.
With the Athletics currently allowing the second-most runs against per game in the MLB this season at 5.84 runs allowed per game, the Blue Jays are sure to do the bulk of the work in hitting the Over. Although the Jays have had their troubles at the plate this season, they are sure to see their offensive production increase against a porous defensive team.
Look for the Blue Jays to run up the score against their opponents in a hurry this evening, pushing the pace, and building a quick lead as the A’s play catchup for the majority of the matchup. Bank on the Over in tonight’s clash as eight or more total runs are scored in this evening’s duel.
Blue Jays VS Athletics Batter Prop Bets
Ernie Clement Over 0.5 Hits (-210)
Having recorded a hit in five-straight games played, look for Blue Jays second baseman Ernie Clement to once again make contact with a pitch, racking up Over 0.5 hits this evening.
With a superb nine total hits over his recent five-game hit streak, Clement has cemented himself as a reliable option within the Jays lineup. A precision hitter that excels at finding the weak points in the opposing outfield, look for him to take advantage of the lacklustre defence of the Athletics as he extends his hit streak to six games.
Bet the Over on Clement’s hit total and watch as he notches you a winning player prop bet all with a single swing.
Shea Langeliers Over 0.5 Strikeouts At-Bat (-295)
Having struggled to consistently produce for his team offensively this season, look for Athletics catcher Shea Langeliers to strike out at the plate in tonight’s showdown.
After striking out twice against the Blue Jays in last night’s opening fray, Langeliers struggles offensively are sure to bleed into tonight’s action. Having struck out in back-to-back games, bank on Langeliers troubles at-bat to continue tonight as he strikes out Over 0.5 times, securing you a safe payday with this player prop bet.
Best Blue Jays VS Athletics Pitcher Props
Chris Bassitt Under 5.5 Hits Allowed (-135)
Poised to pick up where he left off after his last start, bet the Under on Blue Jays starting pitcher Chris Bassitt’s hit total as he stifles the Athletics batters this evening.
Having allowed Under 5.5 hits against in three of his last five trips to the mound, Bassitt has helped keep the Jays in the playoff hunt this season thanks to his dependable play. Set to face the worst-hitting team in baseball this evening, expect a low hit total for Bassitt this evening as he wheels-and-deals from the bump, earning you a big win with this pitcher prop bet.
Ken Waldichuk Under 4.5 Strikeouts (-135)
Set to start the game for the A’s this evening, look for Ken Waldichuk to tally Under 4.5 strikeouts in tonight’s battle with the Jays.
Having failed to reach the sixth inning in four consecutive games played, expect to see a short outing for Waldichuk tonight, preventing him from ramping up his strikeout total as a result. Waldichuk has thrown for Under 4.5 Ks in four of his last six starts, demonstrating his unrefined ability at the top level.
Fade the output of Waldichuk as he takes on a Blue Jays team that strikes out the seventh-least amount of times per game in the MLB. Bet the Under on Waldichuk’s strikeout total and watch your account balance rise as his Ks remain low.
