Toronto Blue Jays vs. Baltimore Orioles Betting Prediction

Prior to the results of Tuesday night’s game, Toronto enters this matchup second in the AL East standings, 10 and a half games behind the New York Yankees for first place. The Yankees may be too far ahead for the Blue Jays to catch but Toronto is atop the AL Wild Card standings, so making the postseason is still in the picture. Toronto lost game one of this series and are 5-5 SU over their last 10 games. The offense has been great this season with a team batting average of .265 (1st), on base percentage of .328 (4th), slugging percentage of .437 (4th), and 525 total runs scored (4th). The Blue Jay’s bullpen has been mediocre throughout the season with a team ERA of 3.92 (18th) and WHIP of 1.24 (11th). The right-hander Jose Berrios (8-4, 5.19 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound Wednesday.  

The Orioles are currently fourth in the AL East standings, 13 and a half games behind the New York Yankees for first place. Despite being fourth in the division, Baltimore is still very much in the postseason conversation as they are just one game behind Seattle for the third AL Wild Card spot. The Orioles took game one of this series and have won seven of their last 10 games. The offense has averaged 4.2 runs per game over that stretch, right on par with their season average of 4.22 runs per game. Baltimore’s bullpen has been solid as well, allowing opponents 3.4 runs per game over their last 10, a bit better than their season ERA of 3.88 (13th). Right-handed pitcher Dean Kremer (4-3, 3.43 ERA) is expected to start for the Orioles Wednesday.  

I like the value in backing the Orioles in this matchup. Kremer is coming off a scoreless six inning outing against the Pirates and could see similar success in this matchup. Berrios was quite the opposite in his most recent outing, giving up five runs in 3.2 innings to the Minnesota Twins. Not to mention, Baltimore has won 19 of their last 26 home games. Backing the Orioles as it offers the best value here.  

Score Prediction: Orioles 4, Blue Jays 3
Best Bet: Orioles ML (+125)

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Baltimore Orioles – Pitching Matchup

Toronto: José Berríos (8-4, 5.19 ERA)

José Berríos toes the rubber for his 22th start of the season for Toronto as he looks to improve on a 8-4 mark and 5.19 ERA. The right-hander has put together a 1.35 WHIP to go along with 107 strikeouts and 29 walks in 118 innings of work. Berríos didn’t factor in the decision in his last start, which came on the road against the Minnesota Twins on August 5, 2022. He threw 3.2 innings, allowing five runs on six hits with two walks and one strikeout in an eventual 6-5 the Blue Jays defeat. In his 11 starts on the road this season, Berríos is 2-4 with a 7.50 ERA, a 1.59 WHIP, 14 walks and 37 strikeouts over 54 innings of work.

Baltimore: Dean Kremer (4-3, 3.43 ERA)

Dean Kremer will make his 11th start of the season for Baltimore, who’s hoping to find some traction after posting a 4-3 record and 3.43 ERA thus far, while tallying a 1.32 WHIP, 14 walks, and 43 strikeouts across 57.2 innings of action. Kremer grabbed the win in his last start, which came at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates on August 5, 2022. He threw 6.1 innings, on four hits and two strikeouts in an eventual 1-0 Orioles win. Kremer owns a 2-2 home record this season in six starts at the Oriole Park at Camden Yards. In those outings, he has posted a 3.41 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP, eight walks, and 27 strikeouts in 31.2 innings of work.
