Anibal Sanchez Gives up OVERs at an Alarming Clip

While Sunday’s series finale and rubber match between the bottom-dwelling Blue Jays and Tigers won’t be turning many heads, it could be turning OVER bettors into winners with the erratic Anibal Sanchez taking the bump in the Big Smoke.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in Anibal Sanchez’ last 4 starts.
  • The average total score of the last 4 games started by Sanchez is 15.25.
  • Sanchez is 0-2 with a 7.98 ERA in 3 starts at the Rogers Centre.

When he last took the hill, Sanchez was nailed by a line drive and was forced to make an early exit. If he continues to pitch like he has of late, however, he’ll be leaving today’s game early whether he likes it or not. The Venezuelan has given up 18 earned runs and nine home runs in his last 11.1 innings pitched and will face a lineup this afternoon that’s already hit 12 bombs in the month of September.

Sanchez is prone to giving up the long ball and when the Jays hit home runs, they usually win.

J.A. Happ has had his problems as well, though, giving up five runs in two of his last four starts, but he’s been better his last two appearances, allowing just two total earned runs in 11.2 innings of work.
