Toronto Blue Jays at Houston Astros Betting Pick

A pair of American League teams will square off on Monday as the Toronto Blue Jays are on the road at the Houston Astros. The Toronto Blue Jays have started the season at 2-2. Toronto is coming off a 9-2 win on the road at Tampa Bay on Sunday to even the four game series.

For the Houston Astros, it has been a slow start. Houston was swept at home by the New York Yankees in four games. The most recent loss came on Sunday, as they were downed 4-3.

The Houston Astros are favorites in this game. Houston is at -140 over Toronto. The total for this game is set at -140.

Blue Jays at .500

The Toronto Blue Jays in their four games have scored 20 runs, and allowed opponents to score 17. The Blue Jays pounded out 9 runs on 10 hits in the win on Sunday. Justin Turner was the main man for the Blue Jays with three hits, and four runs driven in.

George Springer has gone deep twice for the Blue Jays this season. Bo Bichette was a late scratch for the game on Sunday, and is questionable to play in this game. Valdimir Guerrero Jr is hitting .308 to start the season for Toronto.

Bowden Francis is projected to get the start for the Toronto Blue Jays in this game. Francis is 27 years old, and has been in Major League Baseball since 2022. In 2022, he retired just two batters, and last season, he threw 36.1 innings, but did not make a start.

Houston Seeking Win #1

It has not been the start manager Joe Espada expected in his first season with the Astros. They have been outscored 21-11 in four games. Two of the losses have been in the one run variety. The loss on Sunday saw New York break a 3-3 tie with Juan Soto getting a 9th inning RBI base hit.

The Astros offense has gotten off to a slow start. Catcher Yainer Diaz is hitting .429 to lead the way, while Jose Altuve is at .333 and has a home run. Mauricio Dubon has driven in two runs for Houston as well, with a .400 batting average.

Ronel Blanco will make the start for the Houston Astros. Blanco is 30 years old and from the Dominican Republic. Blanco made his MLB debut in 2022, and has made 7 starts in his career. Last season he threw 52 innings and struck out 52 batters.

Blue Jays Keep Astros Winless

The beat goes on. We are going to take the Houston Astros to start with their fifth straight loss. Francis is going to have a good outing, and the Blue Jays bullpen will be strong. Toronto’s bats come to the ballpark and win this opening game of the series.

When push comes to shove, our final bet for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays +125 over the Houston Astros. Enjoy the game and best of luck!
