Blue Jays Cardinals Betting – Romero Needs To Back Up Words As Blue Jays Battle Cardinals In St. Louis This Weekend

In what would have been billed as a battle of the top two hitters in the majors over the past couple of seasons, the St. Louis Cardinals will look to make a push to take over sole possession of first place in the National League Central when they welcome the struggling Toronto Blue Jays this weekend. An injury to Cardinals’ superstar Albert Pujols will prevent him and reigning home run king Jose Bautista from giving the fans a show, but with the Toronto offense in their biggest slump of the MLB betting season it’s a good thing they still have their All Star in the lineup.

The biggest problem for the Blue Jays is that they don’t have any protection for Bautista, making it far too easy for opponents to walk Bautista and deal with the rest of the lineup. If Toronto is going to have any shot at staying relevant past June they will need players like Adam Lind and Aaron Hill to produce with more consistency, and the opener of this three-game set represents perhaps their best chance to getting going. St. Louis starter Jake Westbrook has allowed eight earned runs combined through his past two starts, and hasn’t allowed less than three in over a month. Brandon Morrow pitched 6.2 innings of shutout ball against the Cincinnati Reds in his last start, and if he can put together another solid performance the Blue Jays should open the series with a win.

It won’t be as easy for Toronto with Jaime Garcia on the mound for the Cardinals, as the 24-year old has been lights out so far this season. Garcia is 6-2 with a 3.19 ERA, and with St. Louis playing so well at home it’s unlikely that they will give up consecutive losses to a non-contender, especially since the Blue Jays don’t have a starter to match up against him with Carlos Villanueva scheduled to get the sports betting bonus call Saturday night.

When Toronto starter Ricky Romero tweeted that Bautista needed more help, he could have never projected that the spotlight would shine so bright on him for his words and that they would be put under a microscope the way they have. Now the Blue Jays’ ace will look to back them up and get his team a series win, and for as good as Kyle McClellan has been for St. Louis, Romero gets the betting edge in this one. Toronto has the talent but hasn’t played with consistency, but Romero’s words should have every player on the roster at their best with him on the mound.
