Blue Jays at Giants picks and predictions


Giants 5, Blue Jays 4


This line was as high as Giants -135 Monday evening. While I am somewhat concerned that money has come in on the Blue Jays, I believe the market has moved too far and there is now value on San Francisco.

Snell looked good in his final rehab start, giving up just 1 walk in 5 innings of no-hit ball, and Kikuchi has actually been worse this season — and over his career — on 5 days of rest.

BET GIANTS (-120).

Run line/Against the spread

Toronto +1.5 (-225) will likely hit, but it’s a losing proposition long term to lay -190 or higher while betting into 60-cent lines.

PASS. Bet the ML and/or total instead.


There are concerns with both pitchers in this spot. Kikuchi has been worse statistically when playing on 5 days of rest, and Snell, despite looking good in his final rehab start, is still coming off a groin injury. The Over has hit in back-to-back Games for both teams, and with so many concerns surrounding both starters, the Over is the only way I would look in this market.

BET OVER 7.5 (-115).
