Toronto Blue Jays Betting Preview

The Blue Jays are 2-3 in their latest five-game stretch and coming off a 4-3 loss in Game 1 against the Giants. This loss snapped their previous two-game winning streak against the Seattle Mariners.

They will start right-handed pitcher Chris Bassitt (7-7), who has an ERA of 3.43 and a WHIP of 1.42. As a team, they have a 4.33 ERA and could be in a good position with Bassitt for the first few innings.

The Giants secured victory in Game 1, which ended their two-game losing streak against the Cleveland Guardians. In that series, they averaged 4.00 runs a game and allowed 4.00, with two of their losses ending in a 5-4 result.

They will have a solid start to the game defensively with Logan Webb (7-6) on the mound. He currently averages a 3.09 ERA with a 1.22 WHIP. Their team ERA is 4.42, so he will need to set the tone early.

A few different players lead their offense in the right direction. Heliot Ramos, for example, leads with 13 homers, while Matt Chapman leads with a .241 batting average and. 42 RBIs. Both will need to be in good shape to start this game.

The Giants are solid at the plate, with a .244 batting average. This is slightly higher than what the Blue Jays put up each game. However, they are giving up .260 at the plate to their opponents, and it could hurt them here if the Blue Jays have a good day hitting.
