Blue Jays VS Rockies Picks & Predictions
Hammer the Blue Jays Moneyline
Heading into this weekend with their backs against the wall, the Blue Jays will need to pull out all the stops in order to get themselves back in the playoff picture. After pulling out the lopsided win against the Washington Nationals their last time out, look for them to thwart their inferior opponents on the road this weekend.
Currently sitting with the worst-record in the National League, the Rockies have had a rotten season. Sporting second-worst run differential in the MLB in 2023, look for the Blue Jays to bully their opponents from start-to-finish in this weekends series.
Bank on the Blue Jays moneyline this weekend as they sweep the Rockies on the road in their first head-to-head meetings since 2019, scoring you a boost to your bankroll as they simultaneously boost their postseason odds.
Avoid the High Run Total Line
With the opening lines for this weekends Blue Jays VS Rockies series starting incredibly high, don’t get sucked into the high run total in the forthcoming showdowns.
Currently sitting at 12.5 total runs, the Under is easily the best look for bettors when wagering on the Blue Jays VS Rockies. With the Blue Jays and Rockies sitting in the middle of the pack in terms of runs-scored this season, it’s hard to imagine either side popping off for a high output offensively this weekend.
The Jays and Rockies have both respectively only been a part of one game resulting in Over 12.5 runs scored in their last eight contests, making the Under a smart move in this weekend series.
Best Blue Jays VS Rockies Batter Prop Bets
Davis Schneider Over 1.5 Total Bases
Continuing to establish himself as one of the best stories of the Blue Jays 2023 campaign, look for third baseman Davis Schneider to continue establishing himself as a premier hitting talent as he racks up Over 1.5 total bases against the Rockies.
After piling up 42 total bases in 14 games played in August, there’s no doubt that Schneider can generate offence consistently for the Jays. With home run power in spades, expect to see Schneider hit the long ball en route to Over 1.5 total bases against the Rockies.
Hunter Goodman Over 0.5 Hits
Coming off of a strong month of August, Hunter Goodman is a great bet to record Over 0.5 hits against the Blue Jays in this weekend series.
Averaging 1.25 hits per game in his brief appearances in the Rockies lineup, look for Goodman to continue carving out his place in the major leagues with his consistent play. Back the rookie first baseman to make an impact in this weekends inter-conference clash, earning you an easy payday off Goodman’s play.
Blue Jays VS Rockies Probable Pitchers this Weekend
Hyun-Jin Ryu (September 1st)
Having led the Blue Jays to victory in three-consecutive starts, look for Hyun-Jin Ryu to continue his strong play against the Rockies this weekend.
Averaging four Ks per game as well as sporting a stellar 2.25 ERA in 2023, Ryu has instantly made an impact since returning to the Blue Jays lineup. Set to face a weak Rockies squad, look for Ryu to continue providing efficient play for his team, setting the Jays up in a winning position on Friday evening.
Yusei Kikuchi (September 2nd)
Hoping to record a win for the first time in five starts, look for Blue Jays starting pitcher Yusei Kikuchi to put on a brilliant performance on Saturday night against the Rockies.
With his fastball starting to generate terrific results, Kikuchi is beginning to hit his stride at a crucial point in the Jays season. Poised to rack up a multitude of strikeouts against the squad that averages the third-most batter strikeouts in the MLB, look for Kikuchi to make easy work of the Rockies this weekend.
Kevin Gausman (September 3rd)
While his play has tapered off in recent starts, look for Blue Jays ace Kevin Gausman to get back on track as he puts forth a sensational showing against the Rockies on Sunday.
Leading the American League in strikeouts, Gausman has easily been one of the top pitchers in the MLB this season. Possessing a phenomenal fastball, Gausman is unlikely to face much adversity when he takes the mound this Sunday.
Hammer the Over on Gausman’s strikeout total as he takes out his frustrations against a lowly Rockies team, finding his game after recent struggles, and knabbing you an easy win on your MLB bet slips.
Chris Flexen (September 1st)
After spending the majority of his 2023 season with the Seattle Mariners, newly turned starting pitcher Chris Flexen will look to make an impact in his second meeting against the Jays this year.
Having started all six games played since joining the Rockies, Flexen has been given an increased role with his new squad. With a poor 1-6 record as a starter this season, don’t expect to see Flexen to have a strong outing against a hungry Jays squad, continuing his weak campaign, and worsening his stats as a starter.
Ty Blach (September 2nd)
Having served as a reliable pitching option for the Rockies in 2023, look for Ty Blach to keep things competitive on Saturday night. Possessing solid stats with a 3.94 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP, Blach could be a building block to utilize throughout the current Rockies rebuild.
Making the most of his limited time in the big leagues, look for Blach to keep his team within striking distance of the lead after a strong showing against the Orioles in his last start.
Austin Gomber (September 3rd)
Still recovering from a recent back issue, fading the output of Rockies starting pitcher Austin Gomber is a great betting strategy as this weekend series wraps up. Having had poor showings over his last five games, look for the Jays to take full advantage of the weak play from the bump.
With his fastball having generated horrendous results in 2023, Gomber has certainly had a season to forget. Facing a Jays team that excels at racking up hits, look for the Rockies to fall behind early on the scoreboard Sunday as Gomber once again fails to keep his team competitive.
