Blue Jays VS Mets Picks & Predictions
Back the Underdog Blue Jays on the Runline (+1.5)
Both teams enter this weekends series riding a wave of momentum. With the Blue Jays winning two of their last three against the Brewers, while the Mets have came out on top of their last three games, this series is sure to be closely contested.
With both teams possessing terrific talent across the field, look for the scoreboard to stay close, providing terrific value for any runline bets on the underdog Blue Jays. Betting on the Jays runline means they have to be within one run of the Mets to end the ball game, or to simply win outright in order to score you a winning bet.
As the Blue Jays have begun to demonstrate the incredible upside that had many looking at them as potential World Series contenders prior to Opening Day of the 2023 MLB season, back them to cover the runline this weekend on the road against the Mets.
Expect Low-Scoring Matchups in the Blue Jays VS Mets Series (Under 8.5 Runs)
We’ve seen both teams do a terrific job at lighting up the box score throughout this season, but look for a much more methodical and slow paced matchup this weekend as the Blue Jays and Mets combine for Under 8.5 runs.
Both sides take immense pride in their ability to shutdown their opponents batters, utilizing strong pitching and athletic outfielders to prevent dangerous scoring plays. Both teams enter this weekend series after having hit the Under in their last two matchups.
Look for the score to stay low in order to win you some dough, bet the Under on the Blue Jays VS Mets this weekend.
Best Blue Jays VS Mets Batter Prop Bets
Bo Bichette Over 1.5 Total Bases
Growing ever closer to capturing the league lead in total bases, back Blue Jays shortstop, Bo Bichette to keep up his blistering pace, racking up Over 1.5 total bases against the Mets this weekend. Able to make contact with virtually any pitch, whenever Bichette is up to bat, you know he’s capable or making a big play.
Currently only trailing Freddie Freeman of the Los Angeles Dodgers in total bases, look for Bichette to continue adding onto his impressive tally, scoring you a winning player prop bet in the process.
Brandon Nimmo Over 0.5 Hits
An eight-year veteran of the MLB, look for Mets centre fielder, Brandon Nimmo to continue his sensational batting season at the expense of the Blue Jays this weekend. Averaging 1.14 hits per game, look for Nimmo to make his presence felt in this matchup, racking up Over 0.5 hits against the Jays.
Looking to continue his career-best pace, Nimmo recorded a hit in his last outing against the Philadelphia Phillies after going hitless in back-to-back games, a rare sight for him in 2023. Look for Nimmo to get back on track this weekend, making contact and finding his way on-base against the Blue Jays, cashing you an easy payday on the Jays VS Mets.
Blue Jays VS Mets Probable Pitchers
Chris Bassitt (June 2nd)
Making the initial start for this weekend series, Blue Jays starting pitcher, Chris Bassitt is hoping to wash the bad taste from his mouth still lingering from a rough outing against the Minnesota Twins in his last appearance. After allowing nine hits, resulting in seven total runs against in his last start, Bassitt will need to find his game in order to take down the Mets.
Having cooled off from his initial hot start to the 2023 MLB season, err on the side of caution when placing any pitcher prop bets on Bassitt as his struggles may continue to bleed into this weekend series, a troubling trend for the Blue Jays already inconsistent bullpen.
Jose Berrios (June 3rd)
Continuing to improve after each game played, Blue Jays starting pitcher, Jose Berrios is primed for another strong showing against the Mets. Having played exceptionally in his last appearance at the mound, back Berrios to shutdown the batters of the Mets in order to put his team in a winning position.
Berrios has been incredibly consistent as of late, pitching for an average of six strikeouts per game over his last three starts. Look for Berrios to continue his fantastic output against the Mets this weekend and be sure to take the Over on his strikeout total.
Yusei Kikuchi (June 4th)
After bouncing back from a rough outing against the Tampa Bay Rays by stringing together a strong showing against the Twins, expect to see Blue Jays pitcher, Yusei Kikuchi put on a clinic against the Mets this weekend.
While he still can be prone to allowing big hits as showcased by his four-game streak of allowing a home run, look for Kikuchi to keep the Mets on their toes, utilizing a mixture of his fastball and slider to get the job done. Look for Kikuchi to keep his hits allowed low, but he may be a risk to allow Over 2.5 earned runs.
Justin Verlander (June 2nd)
A legend of the sport making his sixth start of the 2023 MLB season, Mets starting pitcher, Justin Verlander can never be counted out. The 40-year-old ace has had an up-and-down season thus far but his experience and knowledge of the game could serve as a deciding factor in their upcoming matchup against the Blue Jays.
While the three-time Cy Young winner has shown in the past that he is more than capable of taking over a game, at his advanced age any bets placed on Verlanders performance could be a risk as his play has been sporadic thus far this season.
Tylor Megill (June 3rd)
A pitcher that truly lives-and-dies by the fastball, look for Mets starting pitcher, Tylor Megill to have a rough day at the office as he takes on a power hitting Blue Jays squad. Having allowed four or more hits in eight straight games, be sure to fade Megill heading into this weekend series.
Megill has failed to string together a successful 2023 campaign, allowing his opposition to easily score off of his play, having been pulled prior to the fifth inning in back-to-back starts Bank on the Blue Jays to push Megill to the limit, stay far away from his pitcher props unless you’re planning on fading his production.
Kodai Senga (June 4th)
Performing at a high-level for the Mets this season, Kodai Senga is set for yet another strong showing as he closes out this weekend series against the Blue Jays. With a deep bag of tricks to pull from, Senga has several reliable pitches that he uses masterfully to strikeout opposing batters.
Averaging a strong seven strikeouts per game, Senga will provide the Mets with the best chance to win in this weekend series. Back Senga to have a shutdown performance against the Jays, building upon an already stellar 2023 season.
