|TOR (-105) @ pinnacle|
T.M. Selection: Blue Jays (10* MONEY-MAKER).
Both teams are "hungry," but Toronto has the vastly better starting pitcher in this opening game and in this shortened double-header scenario, I think that's going to pay dividends for Steven Matz and the Jays. Matz is 2-0 with a 1.46 ERA and who has allowed just two runs over his first 12 innings of work. Volatile Mike Minor gets the nod for the Royals, and he's 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA, earning a no-decision in his last outing vs. the White Sox on Sunday. I love Matz in the opener of this double-header on Saturday afternoon; lay the short price!
T.M. Prediction: 6-3 Toronto.
