Toronto Blue Jays Betting Predictions – Blue Jays Ready To Deliver When It Counts

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 2/14/2013 6:18:12 PM

After one of the most incredible offseasons in baseball history, all of the talk heading in to spring training has been centered on the Toronto Blue Jays, and whether or not they can be recognized as a legitimate online betting contender at this point. The bookies seem to unanimously agree on the situation with Toronto listed as the 15/2 favorites to win the World Series in 2013, and it’s easy to understand why that is. The Blue Jays added the reigning National League Cy Young award winner to their starting rotation, as well as both Mark Beuhrle and Josh Johnson, while also acquiring Jose Reyes and Melky Cabrera to provide a boost to their offense. On paper it would appear as though Toronto will run right through the AL this coming season, but there is a big difference between being the best team on paper and actually delivering when it counts.

There is no denying the immediate boost one of the worst starting rotations in the majors will get with the additions of Dickey, Buehrle, and Johnson, who will fill the top-three spots. That will not only improve each of those positions, but it will also push Ricky Romero and Brandon Morrow down in the rotation and take some of the pressure off both of them, which should help with their progression and consistency in 2013. The Blue Jays could still use another arm in the bullpen and there have been rumors floating around about the team’s potential interest in former Giants’ closer Brian Wilson, but right now there is no doubt that the pitching staff has improved overall.

Toronto’s offense carried the team for most of last online sportsbook season with Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion delivering the long balls, and they could be even better in 2013. Bautista and Encarnacion will now have Reyes and Cabrera hitting in front of them, making them that much more dangerous to bring in runs as pitchers will not be able to pitch around them. Factor in rising stars like Brett Lawrie and Colby Rasmus, and the Blue Jays could be among the highest-scoring teams in the majors this coming year. As is the situation with the pitching, the arrival of two All-Star hitters takes a lot of pressure off the players already here, and makes everyone that much more dangerous.

As we saw with the Baltimore Orioles a year ago and the Tampa Bay Rays before that, anything can happen in the AL East. The Blue Jays smelled blood in the water with the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox expected to be limited in what they can do this year, and general manager Alex Anthopolous decided to go all in. No team did better in the offseason or improved more than Toronto, and now comes the time where baseball fans north of the border get to see what it is like to cheer for a legitimate sports betting contender. The Blue Jays will compete for a division crown and more in 2013, as they look to rekindle the magic of the World Series teams in the early 1990’s.

Projected Record: 100-62; 1st In AL East
