Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Spin
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. went 1-for-4 with a double and a strikeout in Sunday's loss to the White Sox. Second career double for Guerrero. It was the only extra-base hit the Blue Jays managed on the afternoon against a locked-in Lucas Giolito. We've yet to see the super-prospect play up to his billing -- he is hitting just .191/.283/.234 in 47 at-bats and has yet to connect on his first home run -- but fantasy owners need to continue to exercise patience. We view his early struggles as yer typical transitional hiccups. Stay the course for the time being.
San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored, including the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning, as the Giants edged the Reds 6-5 on Sunday. Sporting a pink bat for Mother's Day, Sandoval got the Giants on the board in the first inning with an opposite-field, two-run shot off Reds starter Tyler Mahle. That was a leisurely jog, but the third baseman needed more hustle for his part in the eighth inning rally. After swatting a double to put himself in scoring position, Sandoval chugged around third on a Kevin Pillar base hit to center and slid into home ahead of the tag, giving the Giants the late lead. It was a nice game for the 32-year-old, who's batted .282/.282/.577 while playing sparingly in 36 games for the bay area club. He's a candidate to be dealt ahead of the trade deadline, but given what we've seen from him outside of San Francisco in years past, it'll be interesting to see which, if any, teams pursue his services.
MLB Betting Trends
The total has gone under in four of the Blue Jays’ last five games when playing the Giants on the road and is 5-2 in their last seven games versus San Francisco overall.
The total has gone over in eight of the Giants’ last nine games.
While the Giants have played average ball over their last 10 games (they’re 5-5 over that span), the Blue Jays have lost eight of 10. The biggest issue for Toronto has been a lack of offense. The Blue Jays have scored 1, 2, 4, 1, 0, 0, 2, 5, 1 and 2 runs, respectively, over their last 10 games. That’s putrid. Granted, the Giants don’t exactly mash but they’re worth a flier as an underdog in what should be a low-scoring game.
The Pick: San Francisco Giants +100
