Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 7.0 Evaluation: Win (700) - Final Score TOR 9 at OAK 4
Pick
1.5 TOR (-180) @ caesars

I'm playing TORONTO on the run-line (+1.5 runs) Yesterday's game saw only five runs scored. With an O/U line of eight, tonight's game is expected to also be relatively low-scoring. That being said, every run figures to count for a lot. Though I expect the Jays to win outright, I also feel that this could be a tight one. Ray has been excellent. He's throwing harder than he has in years and that's helped lead to a 2.78 ERA and 1.191 WHIP throough four starts. In two road starts, Ray's ERA dips down to 2.45. On the other hand, in two home starts, Bassitt has a 4.67 ERA. Bassitt is supported by an Oakland bullpen which has a 4.01 ERA at home. Conversely, Toronto relievers have a superb 1.68 ERA on the road. Ray has 14 K's against 0 walks his last two starts; Toronto beat Atlanta 13-5 the last time he was on the mound. Two of Bassitt's last three starts have resulted in 1-run Oakland wins. Expect AT LEAST a "run-line cover" for the visitors.

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.
