Blue Jays Look To Extend Franchise Record Win Streak At Tampa Bay Monday

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 6/24/2013 7:24:37 PM

When the Toronto Blue Jays were labeled as preseason World Series favorites, it was almost impossible for them to immediately live up to expectations. Injuries and inconsistent play on both sides of the ball led to early struggles, and as little as two weeks ago it seemed Toronto had little chance of making a run at the American League Wild Card. A lot has changed since then, as the Blue Jays have won a franchise-record 11-straight and are suddenly just five games back of the Boston Red Sox for top spot in the AL East. The Baltimore Orioles learned first-hand how dangerous this Toronto team can be after getting swept in three games over the weekend, and will look to get back on track against the Cleveland Indians as part of a light MLB sports betting schedule for Monday.

The Orioles are still just two games back of the Red Sox for first place, but they missed out on an excellent opportunity to pull even over the weekend and must turn things around in a hurry back home. Ubaldo Jimenez won’t intimidate the Baltimore lineup much with his 4.66 ERA, even if he is coming off back-to-back games in which he was tagged for no more than two earned runs. The Orioles’ pitching staff struggled over the weekend, and will need a much stronger performance from lefty Zach Britton in Monday’s start. Britton bounced back from a tough season debut to pitch 5.1 strong innings against the Detroit Tigers, allowed just one run on five hits for his first win. Baltimore has been more dangerous at home than on the road, and must find a way to get their offense going against a Cleveland team that has looked better of late but is still seven games below .500 on the road this online sports betting season.

MLB Betting Pick: Baltimore Orioles - 160

Toronto Blue Jays @ Tampa Bay Rays
Monday, 7:10 PM ET

Next up for the Blue Jays is a Tampa Bay team that has trended in the opposite direction over the past couple of weeks, as the Rays find themselves in the AL East basement after playing sub-.500 baseball over the past 10 days. Toronto is still three games below .500 on the road this season and the visiting team hasn’t fared well overall in the first of three-game series’ after a home stand, but it’s hard to argue against how good the Blue Jays are playing right now. Esmil Rogers is one of the surprise contributors of late, as he has allowed just four earned runs combined over his last four starts – all of them Toronto wins. Jeremy Hellickson is 5-3 with a 5.50 ERA this online betting season, with one of those losses coming against the Blue Jays late last month. The Tampa Bay offense hasn’t been nearly consistent enough of late, and if Hellickson struggles early this could turn in to a long night for the home fans as Toronto continues to roll.
