Point Spread: -1½/+120 Toronto

Sportsbook: PinnacleSports

Result: Win

*3 Star MLB Play of the Day* The Toronto Blue Jays can obviously score runs in bunches. This is an amazing lineup. Kyle Gibson has a career ERA of 5.72 in the second half of the season. He was good earlier in the year, but he has shown signs of faltering lately. I think that gets even worse against a star studded lineup like Toronto's. The Minnesota bullpen is one of the worst in baseball, so they won't help much. Mark Buehrle has thrown the ball really well in the last couple months. Minnesota's offense is regressing back to the mean of late. If this game is a slugfest, that gives the Blue Jays a nice advantage. Minnesota has lost 8 of their last 10 games, and 7 of those 8 losses were by 2 runs or more. Toronto has won 7 of their last 8 games, and 6 of those 7 wins have come by 2 runs or more. Take Toronto -1.5.
