J.A. Happ gets the start for the Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon. He has made 11 starts this season and has a 7-3 record with a 3.84 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. Happ has pitched 65.2 innings this season and has 79 strikeouts with 18 walks.

Matthew Boyd gets the start for the Tigers today this afternoon. He has started 10 games this season and has a 3-4 record with a 3.00 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. Boyd has pitched 57.0 innings and has 45 strikeouts with 20 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Toronto

The Blue Jays are just 3-14 in their last 17 games against a left-handed starter and they have also lost seven straight Saturday games.

Detroit

The Tigers have won six of their last seven at home against a left-handed starter. They have also won seven of their last 10 against AL East opponents.

Prediction:

While Haap has been very good on the mound for Toronto, I don’t like the Jays hitting right now. Boyd has been pretty good in his own right and he will be at home with a surging roster behind him. The Tigers have seen their pitching numbers continue to improve while Toronto has been struggling at the plate.

 

The Pick: Detroit Tigers +125
