MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays are 1-9 in their last 10 games following a win and 1-7 in their last eight road games.
The Orioles are just 17-42 in their last 59 home games and 7-21 in their last 28 Thursday games.
Stroman is coming off two straight poor outings, but he has been pretty good for most of the year. Ynoa has just three starts, which have all been a bit shaky. Stroman has more experience as a starter and I trust him a little more than the Orioles. Toronto seems to have the bigger bats in the key spots as well. However, both teams have their clear flaws, so it is a bit of a wild card game. Still, I will go with the better starter in Stroman.
MLB Prediction: Toronto Blue Jays -145
