Sharp Bettors are Eyeing UNDER in Orioles-Blue Jays

Despite suffering through a four-game losing streak, the Baltimore Orioles are still in the thick of things in the American League wild-card race. Next up on the docket is a matchup on Monday with a team that’s well behind in playoff contention, the Toronto Blue Jays. Sportsbooks opened the O’s as +103 road underdogs with a total of 10.

Shark Bites
  • The Orioles are 3-1 SU in their last four games on the road against the Blue Jays.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Blue Jays’ last 17 games at home.
  • The Orioles are 2-7 SU in their last nine games on the road with Ubaldo Jimenez as the starting pitcher.

Ubaldo Jimenez and Marco Estrada are expected to get the start for the Orioles and Jays, respectively. Jimenez (5-9, 6.80 ERA) has been getting hammered in his last three starts, giving up at least five runs on each occasion in that span. The 33-year-old owns an 8-5 record with a 4.12 ERA in 19 career appearances (17 starts) vs the Blue Jays in his career.

Estrada (7-8, 5.00) is riding a four-start unbeaten streak and notched a victory in his last start against Baltimore on August 31 despite surrendering six runs and 10 hits in five innings of work. The native of Mexico is 6-1 lifetime against the Orioles.

The UNDER is always a solid play when the Orioles and Blue Jays get together, as 19 of the last 24 contests between the clubs have gone UNDER the closing total.
