Tough Stretch Continues For Unpredictable Blue Jays’ Team

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 7/1/2013 8:03:33 PM

The Toronto Blue Jays are what at least one person thinks they are. The problem is that nearly every online sports betting fan has a different opinion, and the team hasn’t been consistent enough in any particular area to make a determination just yet. The Blue Jays following up a franchise-record 11-game win streak that included a sweep of the Baltimore Orioles by losing two of three games against the Tampa Bay Rays and then dropping three of four against the American League East-leading Boston Red Sox. Next up is a date with the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers, and it won’t get any easier.

The Tigers haven’t looked very good of late either, entering this sports betting series on the heels of consecutive losses with just four wins in their last 10 games. Detroit is four games below .500 as the visiting team on the year, and Toronto will look to take advantage of getting to play them at home. The Blue Jays will turn back to Chien-Ming Wang after he was tagged for seven runs in just 1.2 innings of work against the Red Sox, hoping that he could pitch the way he did when Toronto won each of the first three starts he made for the club. The Tigers will counter with Doug Fister, who was also roughed up by Boston recently but has been much more consistent and should have a shot at a win if his offense can get to Wang early on.

It will get even tougher for the Blue Jays with veteran Max Scherzer on the mound Wednesday, as he looks to extend his undefeated run with a sixth-straight online betting win. Scherzer has allowed more than two earned runs only once during his current run, and the Tigers have scored five runs or more in four of the five wins. Toronto didn’t expect those numbers out of Josh Johnson this year, but they did expect him to do better than one win through nine starts. Johnson has allowed a combined nine earned runs in his last 9.1 innings of work, bringing his ERA to 5.21 for the season. He gave up six earned runs in just 1.1 innings of work in a start against Detroit earlier this season.

The Blue Jays will try and salvage something from this series in the finale on Thursday, but once again it will be a tough pitching match up with Esmil Roges set to get the start opposite Justin Verlander. That said, Rogers has been excellent for Toronto in games that he has started, as they have won five of six. Detroit on the other hand has lost three of the last four games that Verlander has started, and his 3.77 ERA means he is more vulnerable than the casual fan might expect. The Blue Jays will need another strong start out of Rogers, and he has really come up big of late.
