Blue Jays vs. Rays Game 2 Prediction

Blue Jays vs. Rays Game 2, 9/30/30 MLB Playoffs Betting Predictions

Game 1 of the American League Wild Card series between the Blue Jays and Rays stayed under the total on Tuesday as the two teams combined for just four runs. Will Game 2 turn similar with a pair of top-of-the-rotation starters toeing the rubber?

Toronto Blue Jays DFS Spin

Jordan Romano (finger) is an option to pitch should the Blue Jays advance to the ALDS. Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said Romano has looked and felt good in throwing sessions, but they were uneasy about having him return without more live batting practice sessions or game action. The 27-year-old missed all of September with a right middle finger strain.

Tampa Bay Rays DFS Spin

Manuel Margot went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer Tuesday in the Rays' Wild Card Series Game 1 defeat of the Blue Jays. Tampa Bay was clinging to a 1-0 lead when Margot launched a no-doubter to left off A.J. Cole in the bottom of the seventh inning. That proved to be a crucial punch, as the Blue Jays rallied for one run -- their lone run -- in the top of the eighth. Margot also singled in the bottom of the second as the Rays' No. 8 hitter.

Blue Jays vs. Rays Game 2 Betting Prediction

Even though these two teams combined for only four runs in Game 1 on Tuesday and despite the starting pitching matchup being Tyler Glasnow versus Hyun-Jin Ryu, I like the over. The over is 4-0 in the Blue Jays’ last four games when facing a right-handed starter and is 5-2-1 in their last eight games as a road underdog. The over is also 8-3 in their last 10 games versus the rest of the division and has still cashed in seven of their last 10 road games despite the under hitting last night. The over is also 8-2 in the Rays’ last 10 home games when the total is set between 7 and 8.5 runs and is 8-4 in their last 12 games when favored at home.
