Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Rating:

The Orioles are leading the season series against the Blue Jays, but the Blue Jays are playing better at the moment and are coming off series wins over the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. Even though Buchholz is 1-2 with a 4.42 ERA in his last four appearances against the Orioles, the Blue Jays should have enough firepower to get past an Orioles team that has lost six of their last seven home games.

Prediction: Toronto Blue Jays
