The Toronto Blue Jays (16-13) head into this series with Oakland motivated for a win following back-to-back losses. After getting yesterday off, I believe the Blue Jays will come in recharged and ready to go tonight behind Ace Ricky Romero.
Romero has been one of the most underrated starters in the league over the last few seasons. The lefty is 4-0 with a 3.64 ERA and 1.071 WHIP in six starts this season, and the Blue Jays are 5-1 in those contests.
Romero has absolutely owned the A’s, going 4-0 with a 1.49 ERA and 0.936 WHIP in five career starts against them. Brandon McCarthy sports a 4.08 ERA and 1.302 WHIP in six career starts against Toronto. There’s no question that the Blue Jays have the better starter on the mound in this one.
Toronto is 31-11 against the money line vs. AL teams scoring 3.7 or less runs/game on the season over the last 3 seasons. Oakland is 2-13 against the money line after having won 4 of their last 5 games over the last 2 seasons. The Blue Jays are 9-0 in Romero’s last 9 starts as a favorite of -110 to -150. Bet Toronto Tuesday.
