*3 Star MLB Early Bird Special* In the long run, home teams have done very well in early games on the weekend in Major League Baseball. In a large sample size of more than 2,000 games, betting the home team to win in game played between noon and 3 pm local time brought an ROI of 4.9% and made just over $10,000 for $100 per game bettors.
The Blue Jays are rolling now that they have gotten healthy again. This is a team that was predicted by many to finish ahead of the Yankees before the season started, and I think they do have a higher upside than New York.
Jordan Montgomery is a mediocre lefty at this stage of his career, and the Blue Jays middle of the order has a reputation for bashing left handed pitching.
