2 units on Toronto PICK runs -190 (runline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Toronto Blue Jays, despite losing their top two pitchers over the last two seasons and playing in the toughest division in baseball, are still seven games over .500. The A's have certainly mopped up against the "lesser sisters" in baseball, but the proof is in playing against the better clubs. The A's have failed miserably, entering here with an 11-22 mark in their last 33 vs. teams with a winning record on the season. The offense has really hit the skids, producing just 11 runs in their last six games - less than 2 per contest. That certainly makes the Jays appealing getting +1.5 in this spot vs. a sputtering offense. I'll take Toronto on the runline.
