Toronto Blue Jays DFS SPIN
George Springer went 3-for-4 with a solo homer on Wednesday to lift the Blue Jays to a 1-0 victory over the Guardians. Springer provided the early offense for the Blue Jays, taking Logan Allen deep for a solo homer in the first inning. He added a base hit in the fifth and eighth innings. The home run would be the only run scored in the game by either team. The 33-year-old outfielder is hitting .259/.326/.398 with 14 homers, 62 runs scored, 46 RBI, and 14 steals across 488 plate appearances.
Cleveland Guardians DFS SPIN
George Valera went 0-for-5 for Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, dropping his average to .181. This is looking like a lost year for Valera, who suffered a fractured hamate bone in March and then a strained hamstring a week after returning in May. He’s played in just 38 games for Columbus, and he has only eight extra-base hits. If he had remained healthy, he might be starting in the Guardians outfield right now.

Blue Jays vs. Guardians MLB BETTING PREDICTION
Manoah is 3-8 with a 5.72 ERA on the season, while Syndergaard owns a 1-5 record with a 6.75 ERA. Manoah posted his first win in nearly a month on Friday despite allowing htree runs on six hits including two home runs across 6 2/3 innings of a 7-3 victory over the Red Sox. As for Syndergaard, he coughed up a career-high four home runs and five runs total in six innings during a 7-4 loss to the White Sox on Saturday. Manoah is a bit of a wildcard but has mostly been terrible this season and Syndergaard doesn’t appear to be turning things around anytime soon either. Give me the over.
