Guardians VS Blue Jays Picks & Predictions
Back the Blue Jays to Defend Home Turf
After splitting their previous meetings with the Guardians in a back-and-forth series, look for the Blue Jays to get their season back on track as they take command of the scoreboard at home this weekend.
With the Blue Jays officially on the outside looking in on the 2023 MLB Playoff picture, there is no room for error when taking on a lower-ranked opponent. Needing every win they can get amidst a heated AL Wild Card race, the Blue Jays are set to play with increased urgency as they step up their game offensively.
Watch as the Jays hunt out dangerous scoring plays, attempting to go yard against a stellar defensive team in the Guardians. Bet on the Blue Jays moneyline as they aim to put on a show for their home crowd, placing themselves back firmly in the win column at the perfect time.
Hammer the Under this Weekend
In a clash between two of the best defensive teams in baseball, don’t expect to see many runs scored in this weekend series as the Under hits throughout the weekend series.
With the Guardians and Blue Jays both sitting in the top-three of the MLB in Unders hit this season, it’s safe to say neither side are starngers to low-scoring affairs. With all four of their previous tilts concluding with the Under hitting, look for this trend to continue throughout this weekend series.
Bet the Under on the Guardians VS Blue Jays this weekend and watch as your account balance skyrockets while the final score remains low.
Best Guardians VS Blue Jays Batter Prop Bets
Kole Calhoun Over 0.5 Hits
Having made an immediate impact for the Guardians since joining their lineup this month, look for first baseman Kole Calhoun to remain active at-bat against the Blue Jays this weekend.
With a hit recorded in 11 of his last 14 games played, Calhoun has been feasting whenever it’s his turn to step up to bat. After racking up two hits in three games played against the Jays this season, expect to see Calhoun continue his strong play, picking up Over 0.5 hits against the Blue Jays this weekend.
George Springer Over 1.5 Total Bases
A regular producer of game-changing plays for the Blue Jays, look for right fielder George Springer to make an impact in this weekend series, racking up Over 1.5 total bases.
After picking up Over 1.5 total bases in his last two meetings with the Guardians, back Springer to once again make his presence felt in this series, replicating his efforts from his last time out against their opponents.
Guardians VS Blue Jays Probable Pitchers this Weekend
Tanner Bibee (August 25th)
A boom-or-bust player, Guardians starting pitcher Tanner Bibee will look to utilize his sensational fastball to generate positive results for his team as he takes the mound first in this weekend series.
Sporting an impressive 9-3 record, it’s hard to ignore the ability of the 24-year-old righty. After striking out six batters while also allowing six hits in winning effort in his last start against the Jays, look for the Over to hit in both categories on Friday night as Bibee looks to continue his strong month of August.
Logan Allen (August 26th)
Known for his diverse skillset on the bump, Guardians starting pitcher Logan Allen will look to empty his bag of tricks when facing a tough Blue Jays squad on Saturday.
Allen had a mediocre showing in his last start against the Jays, allowing four hits and only three strikeouts in five innings in an eventual loss. As he hopes for a standout performance on Saturday night, fade the output of Allen against the Jays this weekend.
Noah Syndergaard (August 27th)
In the midst of a turbulent season, Guardians starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard will look to get back on track as he takes the bump to close out this weekend’s series.
Syndergaard has had plenty of trouble keeping opposing teams off the board in 2023, sporting a 6.42 ERA this year. While he had a terrific outing against the Jays in his last start against them, don’t expect to see a repeat performance this evening.
With his recent struggles set to continue, look for Syndergaard to fail in replicating his numbers from his last head-to-head meeting with the Jays.
Chris Bassitt (August 25th)
Set to open the action for the Blue Jays this weekend, Chris Bassitt could be in for a tremendous outing as he takes on the Guardians for the first time this season. Coming off of a stellar performance against the Cincinnati Reds in his last start, bank on Bassitt to continue his fantastic 2023 campaign at the expense of the Guardians.
Possessing one of the nastiest sliders in the MLB, look for Bassitt to keep opposing batters on their toes all game long, making the Over on his strikeout total a great bet as he’s thrown Over 5.5 strikeouts in five-straight starts.
Hyun-Jin Ryu (August 26th)
After pitching a scoreless and hitless four innings against the Guardians in just his second start of the 2023 MLB season, look for Blue Jays starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu to once again make an impact on Saturday’s tilt.
Starting to round into form, look for Ryu to keep the Guardians off of the board, preventing any easy scoring chances, resulting in a low hit total when all is said and done on Saturday night.
Yusei Kikuchi (August 27th)
After failing to secure the win in his last start against the Guardians, look for Blue Jays starter Yusei Kikuchi to settle the score to close out this weekend series.
Kikuchi was spectacular in his last head-to-head meeting with the Guardians, allowing just three hits and a single run over seven innings. With the final score resulting in a 1-0 loss, this result was more based on the lacklustre play of the Jays batters than Kikuchi.
Look for Kikuchi to once again string together a strong performance from the mound, striking out a plethora of Guardians batters, providing his team with ample opportunity to pull ahead on the scoreboard.
