|TOR (108) @ Fanduel|
My selection is on Toronto over St. Louis at 7:45 pm et on Monday.
I like the bounce-back spot for the Blue Jays here after dropping a 3-2 decision against the Reds yesterday. It was still a positive homestand for Toronto as it won consecutive series' against Seattle and Cincinnati. You can be sure the Jays are acutely aware just how bad their most recent road trip went and they'll be looking to make amends for that as they head to St. Louis and Anaheim this week. We'll back Toronto with Jose Berrios starting on Monday. He comes off his best outing of the young season, tossing seven shutout innings against Seattle last week. Berrios' overall numbers aren't great this season but we certainly know what he's capable of and look for him to turn things around sooner rather than later. The Cardinals just finished beating up on the Pirates over a three-game series but aren't likely to find the same level of success in this much tougher matchup. Miles Mikolas has posted terrific numbers this season but has still only managed to post one team victory in three home starts. While he hasn't allowed many runs, he's also not fooling a lot of hitters, topping out at five strikeouts over his last three outings. Here, we'll note that the Blue Jays are 37-16 after scoring two runs or less in their previous game over the last two seasons, outscoring opponents by 1.9 runs on average in that situation. Take Toronto (8*).
