Standout Stats

  • Sportsbooks opened the Astros as -215 home favorites with a total of 9.
  • Clayton Richard will get the nod on the bump for the Blue Jays. Richard (0-2, 7.04 ERA) has yet to make it through five innings in four starts and turned in his worst effort of the season Sunday against Arizona, giving up seven runs on seven hits and two walks over a season-low 2 2/3 frames.
  • Framber Valdez (2-2, 2.73) will counter for the Astros. Valdez (2-2, 2.73) made his first start of the season last Saturday after 14 relief appearances but failed to factor into the decision.
  • The 25-year-old is 0-1 with a 2.41 ERA in eight games (one start) at home this season and is facing Toronto for the first time.
  • The Blue Jays have been cashing OVER tickets when playing in Houston. In Toronto’s last five trips to Texas, the OVER is 4-1.
  • Toronto is 1-5 SU in its previous six matchups against Houston.

My best bet for Blue Jays-Astros

OVER 9.5 runs

I’m banking on Toronto’s OVER trend when playing in Houston and taking the OVER 9 runs in this one. Toronto hasn’t exactly been the most consistent offensive team this season but they have enough young talent to put runs on the board on any given game, and the Astros should be able to light up Richard.
