Total: -120/+9½ Under
Oddsmakers have set the bar way too high tonight in this game between the Oakland A's and Toronto Blue Jays. Oakland has one of the best staffs in baseball, but it doesn't score many runs. Toronto remains without its best player in Jose Bautista, who is on the DL.
The A's are hitting just .228 and scoring 3.8 runs/game this season. The UNDER is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall as the A's and their opponents have combined for 9 runs or less in all six contests.
Travis Blackley is 2-2 with a 3.40 ERA and 1.091 WHIP in eight starts this season for Oakland. While Brett Cecil (2-2, 6.34 ERA) has struggled this year for Toronto, he'll be up against a team he has owned tonight. The left-hander is 2-2 with a 2.79 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in four career starts against Toronto.
The UNDER is 21-8 in A's last 29 games overall. The UNDER is 5-0 in Blackley's last 5 starts as an underdog. The UNDER is 6-0 in Blue Jays last 6 when their opponent scores 5 runs or more in their previous game. The UNDER is 7-0 in Blue Jays last 7 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game. These last three trends make for an 18-0 system backing the UNDER. Take the UNDER in his game Tuesday.
