The Toronto Blue Jays offense will be the huge deciding factor and advantage for this matchup! Although, their batting average (.253) isn't impressive by any means they have done very well in terms of timely hitting. Toronto's has scored over 447 runs and are ranked 5th in scoring this season.
Oakland is stuck in a huge rut right now and simply can't muster any sort of momentum. The Athletics has a having a 4.72 era doesn't help. Mengden will be on the mound for Oakland and is going through a tough stretch! He is 1-5 in his last 6 starts and will look to bounce back tonight.
Look for the Bluejays to simply outscore the Athletics tonight. Don't overthink this one for a second. The juice on Toronto (-133) isn't attractive but I feel is fairly priced and is worth a look. The Athletics historically has done very well for me on the road but they are 7-20 in their last 27 home games vs. a team with a winning record. I simply can't trust them to muster enough runs to get this one.
