Toronto Blue Jays vs Detroit Tigers Series Betting

jays-vs-tigersOn Tuesday night the AL East leading Toronto Blue Jays will begin a three game series in Comerica Park against the AL Central leading Detroit Tigers.

The Blue Jays are the hottest team in the majors right now as they are fresh off their recent 9-game winning streak which came to an end on Friday night against the Royals.  The Blue birds have since begun a new winning streak as they roll into Detroit having won two straight games and eight of their last 10.

The Tigers are mired in mediocrity right now as they’ve dropped two straight games and are 4-6 in their last ten games.

The opener on Tuesday night features a couple powerful righties as Toronto’s SP Drew Hutchinson (4-3) takes on Anibal Sanchez (2-2).

As good as these two pitchers may have been pitching as of late, offensively these two clubs are among the elite in all of Major League Baseball.

Detroit starters have posted a 6.78 ERA while the team has dropped 10 of 14 games, and with the way the Blue Jays bats are on fire this past month, they had better hope to see that ERA dip to a more reasonable level.  Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion has been on a torrid pace over recent weeks and has tied an MLB record held by Mickey Mantle with his 16 home runs in the month of May.  OF Jose Bautista, SS Jose Reyes and OF Melky Cabrera have also been raking for the Blue Jays.

The Tigers possess a beast of their own in the way of 1B Miguel Cabrera.  “Miggy” is known in many circles as the best hitter in all of baseball and is capable of taking over a game or a series with his bat, and when he’s hot…there isn’t a more feared hitter in the majors.

Even with their most recent hot streak the Blue Jays are underdogs tonight on the road tonight.  Bet365.com has the Jays paying (2.25) odds on the money line while the hometown Tigers are favoured paying (1.74) odds.  The over/under is set at 8.5 runs and they way these two teams are capable of hitting that total can easily be achieved by one team alone.
