Jays take opener

The Blue Jays opened the series with a 6-2 win at Atlanta on Tuesday night. Toronto is 42-48 overall and 18-23 on the road. The Jays are putting up 4.41 runs per game this season while allowing 4.82 per contest.

Sam Gaviglio takes the mound for the Blue Jays this evening. He has started nine games this year and has a 2-2 record with a 3.81 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. Gaviglio has pitched 52.0 innings this year and has 51 strikeouts with 17 walks.

Braves drop another

The Braves dropped the opener on Tuesday and have now lost six of their last seven games. Atlanta is 50-40 overall and 23-18 at home. The Braves are scoring 4.90 runs per game this season while allowing 4.19 per contest.

Mike Foltynewicz is getting the start for the Braves this evening. He has started 17 games this season and has a 6-5 record with a 2.37 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. He has pitched a total of 95.0 innings and has 114 strikeouts with 40 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Toronto

The Blue Jays have won Gaviglio’s last four starts, but they are just 5-12 in their last 17 road games.

Atlanta

The Braves have won six of Foltynewicz’ last eight interleague starts and five of his last seven starts overall.

Prediction:

Gaviglio hasn’t been able to get deep into games, exiting in the fifth frequently. So, despite the good numbers, I don’t think he will give Toronto enough time on the mound to really make a big impact. Foltynewicz is coming off a poor outing, but he has allowed one run or less in eight of his last 10 outings. I like him to have another strong start today.

 

The Pick: Atlanta Braves -155
