Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Spin

Randal Grichuk went 2-for-4 and hit his fourth homer Thursday as the Blue Jays topped the Twins 7-4. Grichuk had homered previously in his career, so after hitting this one today, he put his head down and stoically trotted around the bases, showing no emotion before exchanging a few firm handshakes upon arriving in the dugout. That's just the way baseball is meant to be played.

Oakland A’s Fantasy Spin

Matt Chapman swatted a go-ahead solo homer, his sixth round-tripper of the season, to lead the Athletics to a 2-1 win over the Astros on Wednesday. Chapman tattooed a mammoth 441-foot blast to left-center field off Astros starter Wade Miley to put the Athletics ahead for good in the sixth inning. It was his lone hit of the contest, but it made the difference in a low-scoring affair. The 25-year-old burgeoning four-category fantasy superstar is hitting .284/.361/.581 with 11 runs scored, six homers and 13 RBI through 21 games. He’s walked nearly as many times (seven) as he’s struck out (eight) in 83 plate appearances.

MLB Betting Trends


The Blue Jays are 1-5 in their last six games in Oakland.


The A’s have won seven straight games against the Blue Jays in Toronto.


The Blue Jays have not been profitable when Stroman pitches, posting an 0-6 record in his last six starts. They’re also 1-4 in his last five road outings and he’s a fly-ball pitcher facing an Oakland lineup with more fly-ball tendencies than most in baseball. The A’s are 5-2 in their last seven games overall and are priced right here.

The Pick: Oakland A’s -135
