The Toronto Blue Jays will attempt to rebound from Thursday’s 8-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox whenever they open a three-game weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles on Friday as -120 favourites on the MLB chances at sportsbooks monitored by
Toronto withdrew an early 6-1 lead to Thursday’s defeat as a +115 underdog, but maintains a respectable 5-3 record in its last eight home contests entering Friday night’s Orioles vs. Blue Jays gambling matchup at Rogers Centre.
The Blue Jays have struggled with consistency in excursions despite generating offence. The team has racked up 6.75 runs per game over its past 12 competitions, but with competitions tallying 71 total runs during that stretch Toronto continues to be forced to settle for a middling 6-6 record. In totals gambling, going 16-5-1 in Toronto 22 contests, the OVER has paid out.
The Orioles arrive after dropping two of three at Tampa Bay to open their current road trip. Baltimore tallied a victory on the Rays in Wednesday’s series finale to avoid the sweep as a +185 bet, but the Orioles have been road performers of late.
Baltimore has come up short in 12 road show since the very first week of the regular season. The Orioles’ latest road series win when they posted victories in two matches with each victory, during a three-game set came at the beginning of April in Toronto.
When the Blue Jays visited in mid-June, the Orioles returned to their familiar struggles against Toronto. The Blue Jays took two of three in the AL East basement-dwellers, and have posted wins of 28 meetings with the Orioles since September 2017, according to the OddsShark MLB Database.
The Blue Jays will require a strong outing. The right-hander is coming from the worst month of his MLB career in June, amassing a bloated 12.00 ERA in 27 innings of work over six starts. Sanchez has surrendered 27 total earned runs.
However, Sanchez was steady against the Orioles, restricting them to five complete earned runs in 18.1 innings over his past three starts against them, but he made the win in merely one of those contests.
