MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays are 0-6 in their last six Sunday games. Toronto is 1-4 in its last five road games.
The Mariners are 4-1 in the last five Gonzales home starts. Seattle is 2-6 in the last eight home meetings.
Toronto ended its skid last night, but I'm thinking a new one starts today. Gonzales has been better this season than his numbers suggest and he should get run support as Buchholz hasn't shown much life left in the tank in his starts this season. In a matchup between two teams going through the string, I have to take the home team with a better pitcher on the mound.
