MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays are 7-19 in their last 26 Wednesday games. The over is 33-16-2 in the last 51 Toronto road games.
The Orioles are 2-10 in the last 12 meetings. Baltimore is 22-60 in its last 82 games overall.
It's difficult to take the O's as any sort of favorite and especially banking on them to win for a third time in a row, but the fact of the matter is their offense is hot right now and Cobb has pitched very well lately. Toronto is also in sleepwalk mode right now and can be faded even against bad teams. Baltimore looks to be the right play again today.
