The last 24 hours have been a wild ride, as the trade deadline came and went. The Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays were relatively quiet and didn’t necessarily make any big moves. The one puzzling addition by the Toronto Blue Jays was the addition of Whit Merrifield. He is not vaccinated, and that is a problem considering Canada requires vaccinations to enter the country.

We expect his attitude to change now that he has gone from cellar dweller to contender. We expected the Jays to aim for a couple arms to bolster the pen, but they instead added a bat. The Jays won the first game in Tampa 3-1 behind a strong ten-strikeout eight-inning performance by Kevin Gausman. Jordan Romano came in for the ninth to get the save and moved the Blue Jays ahead of the Rays by four games in the American League East.

WynnBET is offering a chance to win up to $100 in free bets after a qualifying $100 wager. After an initial $100 wager on odds of -120 or greater, the WynnBET Sportsbook will deposit $100 in free bets into your account. To redeem the promotion, you must utilize the XVIBONUS at signup.

The pitching matchup will feature Yusei Kikuchi against Ryan Yarbrough. Kikuchi has been susceptible to the long ball all season, allowing 15 spanning 70 innings. He has allowed 63 hits and issued a whopping 42 free passes. While Kikuchi is coming off a good start, since the beginning of June he has struggled. In six of his last eight starts, Kikuchi has given up three or more earned runs. All of those were in less than five innings worth of work.

The listed starter for the Rays in Wednesday afternoon's matchup is Jalen Beeks. The Rays will primarily utilize Yarbrough as their bulk starter after the opener role eats up an inning. Unfortunately for Yarbrough, he is not facing the Orioles. He had a strong start against the Orioles, going six strong his last time out, but his previous seven starts were mediocre. He had allowed two earned runs or more in 5.2 innings or less of work in five of his previous seven starts.

WynnBet Sportsbook has the total listed at 7.5, and a few trends on the total might be worth a look. The total has gone under in five straight games for the Blue Jays. The Rays have trended in the opposite direction, as they have gone over the total in six of their last seven home games.

Before Tuesday's 3-1 Jays win, the total had gone over in four straight games when these teams have matched up. The under is now 10-1-1 the last 12 meetings in Tampa Bay. The Blue Jays offense is always scary when taking an under, but the same is said for the Rays offense when betting the over. The Rays are still missing a lot in their lineup, and it will be interesting to see if they overcome the absences.

WynnBET Sportsbook has the Blue Jays as favorites at -116 on the money line, while the Rays are +106. They will have all available action, including the money lines, the run lines, total, first five innings, prop bets, and even live betting. After the initial qualifying $100 wager on -120 or greater odds has settled, WynnBET will deposit $100 in free bets into your account. Use XVIBONUS at signup and get started today.

Until next time, enjoy the ride.
