Jays lose back-to-back
The Blue Jays are coming off back-to-back losses at home to the Yankees and they have dropped five of their last seven. Toronto is 41-48 overall and 17-23 on the road. The Jays are putting up 4.39 runs per game this season while allowing 4.85 per contest.
Marcus Stroman gets the start for the Blue Jays on Tuesday night. He has started 10 games this season and has a 1-6 record with a 6.50 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. Stroman has 43 strikeouts and 23 walks through 54 innings of work.
Braves on a skid
The Braves are coming off a 10-3 loss at Milwaukee on Sunday and they have lost five of their last six games. Atlanta is 50-39 overall and 23-17 at home. The Braves are scoring 4.91 runs per game this season while allowing 4.18 per contest.
Julio Teheran gets the start for the Braves this evening. He is making his 18th start of the season tonight. He is 6-6 on the season with a 4.47 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. Teheran has pitched 92.2 innings this year and has 87 strikeouts with 45 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays are just 4-12 in their last 16 road games and 2-5 in Stroman’s last seven starts.
The Braves have won 7 of their last 10 interleague games against a losing team and they are 11-4 in their last 15 home games against a right-handed starter.
The Braves are coming off a lengthy road trip and I expect them to have a boost in their step by returning home tonight. Stroman has been giving up runs in big chunks this year and lately. Teheran has been alternating good starts with bad and is coming off a poor start. Look for him to have a better start tonight against Toronto as Atlanta gets a win.
The Pick: Atlanta Braves -125
