Jays struggling to win consistently

The Blue Jays are coming off a win on Sunday over the Rays, but have lost six of their last eight games. Toronto is 53-64 overall and 24-32 on the road. Toronto is putting up 4.46 runs per game on offense this year while allowing 5.08 per contest.

Sean Reid-Foley is getting the start for Toronto tonight. He is making his MLB debut tonight. He was a second round pick in the 2014 MLB Draft.

Royals can’t win

The Royals were swept at home by the Cardinals this weekend and have lost nine of their last 10 games. Kansas City is 35-82 overall and 16-42 at home. The Royals are scoring just 3.66 runs per game this season while allowing 5.50 per contest.

Brad Keller makes the start for the Royals this evening. He is making his 13th start of the season tonight, but also has 21 relief appearances. Keller comes in with a 4-5 record, a 3.57 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. Keller has amassed 58 strikeouts and 38 walks over 88.1 innings of work this year.

MLB Betting Trends

Toronto

The Blue Jays have lost five of their last six Monday games and they have lost six of their last eight against the AL Central.

Kansas City

The Royals have lost eight of Keller’s last 11 starts and they are 7-20 in their last 27 Monday games.

Prediction:

Toronto has an unknown on the mound today in Sean Reid-Foley. The bonus for him is he’s starting against one of the worst hitting teams in the league. Keller hasn’t been too bad this year, but he has given up at least three runs in five of his last six outings. I think the Jays can get some runs on him while the Royals struggle with a pitcher they have never seen.

 

The Pick: Toronto Blue Jays -125
