Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Spin

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-5 with a homer in a loss to the Indians on Saturday. Galvis took Carlos Carrasco deep to give the Blue Jays their first run of the afternoon. It's the third homer of the year for the shortstop, and he's gone deep in back-to-back games. Galvis is off to a strong start to begin the year, but we have a strong sample size that suggests that this won't last long. Sell high, if you can.

Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin

Carlos Santana went 2-for-3 with an RBI and run scored on Saturday in the Indians' win over the Blue Jays. Santana also drew a walk. A day after hitting a walk-off homer over Toronto on Friday, Santana has another big day, and the veteran first baseman now has a .444/.516/.593 line to begin the season in his return to the Cleveland lineup after spending a year with the Phillies. Santana won't do this all year -- no one will -- but he has a chance to be a competent fantasy option in 2019. Just be prepared for some highs and lows

MLB Betting Trends

Toronto

The Blue Jays are 1-4 in their last five games versus the Indians and are winless in their last four games at Progressive Field.

Cleveland

The Indians have won four of Clevinger’s last five starts and are 7-1 in his last eight home outings.

Prediction:

Clevinger posted a 25.6 percent strikeout rate and a career-best 3.86 xFIP a season ago and picked up right where he left off by shutting down the White Sox across seven innings in his first start of 2019. The Blue Jays are the current owners of a .601 OPS across 10 games and if Clevinger can work around a hot Galvis, the Blue Jays offense will be stifled for a second consecutive day. After cashing the Toronto under on Saturday, I’m going right back to the well on Sunday.

The Pick: Toronto Blue Jays Team Total UNDER 3.5 (-135) Runs
