Pick
1.5 TOR (-193) @ Betamerica

This is a 6* RUN-LINE SATURDAY RELEASE on the Jays.

The Jays last 10-4 last night. With their "ace" on the mound, I expect a much tighter game here, one which I see being decided late, or even in extra frames.

Steven Matz is 4-2 with a 4.78 ERA for the Jays this season. Matz looks to rebound from his last start vs. Oakland where he allowed five runs over five innings.

Matz though enters with a sharp 33:10 K:BB.

Cristian Javier is 0-0 with a 1.75 ERA and 30:8 K:BB. Regression has already begun for Javier after a blistering start though, as he most recently alowed three runs off four hits in a no-decision vs. the Rays in his last outing.

I like Matz to easily match Javier today and in a scenario like that, invariably the value swings to the undervalued underdog.

I'm playing the JAYS on the RUN-LINE.

Good luck, NP

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
