San Francisco Giants vs. Toronto Blue Jays

MLB: Wednesday, April 24, 2019, Rogers Centre, Toronto, Canada, 4:07 PM ET

The San Francisco Giants will take on the Toronto Blue Jays in the inter-league showdown at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada, Wednesday afternoon to close down a two-game series. These two teams will meet each other for the first time since 2016. Drew Pomeranz will get the ball for the Giants, while Clay Buchholz will be on the other side for the Blue Jays. The tip-off is set at 4:07 PM ET.

The Giants will finish their eight-game road trip

The San Francisco Giants entered the series with the Blue Jays after a couple of three-game series at Washington and Pittsburgh, losing both 2-1. They are coming home following tonight’s clash with Toronto, but the Giants are on a heavy schedule, as their next two rivals are the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Giants are sitting bottom of the NL West and will have a tall task to improve in the next seven days. San Francisco is scoring just 2.91 runs per game (29th in the league) while recording a .209 batting average (also 29th) and a .270 on-base percentage (also 29th). The Giants are allowing 3.48 runs in a return (3rd in the league) with a 3.22 ERA (tied-3rd).

Drew Pomeranz will take the hill for the Giants today, and he’s 0-2 in four starts this season with a 4.82 ERA, a 1.61 WHIP, 23 strikeouts, and eight walks, allowing 22 hits and ten earned runs. The left-hander is 3-2 in eight starts against the Blue Jays with a 4.26 ERA and a 1.74 WHIP, while Pomeranz is 44-50 in his career with a 3.94 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP, 710 strikeouts, and 313 walks in 728.2 innings of work. Steven Duggar and Brandon Belt are leading the way for the Giants’ bats this season, Duggar has 22 hits, 11 RBIs, a .242 batting average, and a .276 on-base percentage, while Belt has 16 hits, four home runs, nine RBIs, a .213 batting average, and a .314 on-base percentage.

The Blue Jays have been impressive lately

The Toronto Blue Jays entered the series against the Giants on a four-game winning streak, sweeping the Oakland Athletics in a three-game series on the road following a 3-1 series victory at the Minnesota Twins. The Blue Jays will welcome the A’s after tonight’s clash with the Giants before they hit the road again to meet the Los Angeles Angels and the Texas Rangers. Toronto is scoring 4.13 runs per contest (22nd in the league), recording a .232 batting average (tied-21st) and a .300 on-base percentage (24th). The Blue Jays are giving up 3.83 runs in a return (6th in the league) with a 3.34 ERA (also 6th).

Clay Buchholz will take the mound for the Blue Jays today, and it will be his third start on the season. Buchholz pitched 10.2 innings in Toronto’s victories over Minnesota and Tampa Bay, recording a 3.38 ERA, a 1.41 WHIP, six strikeouts, and three walks while allowing 12 hits and four earned runs. The right-hander is playing his first season with the Blue Jays while he’s 88-64 in his career with a 3.86 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, 991 strikeouts, and 445 walks in 1284 innings of work. Freddy Galvis and Justin Smoak are leading the Blue Jays’ bats, but Galvis is questionable for tonight’s game due to a leg injury. Smoak has 21 hits, five homers, 17 RBIs, a .313 batting average, and a .439 on-base percentage.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Blue Jays are playing in a good form at the moment, and after some impressive displays at Oakland and Minnesota, I expect them to dominate San Francisco today. The Giants have been struggling lately, and they will start Drew Pomeranz who played against the Blue Jays as a Red Sox member, but he’s 0-2 on the season, while the Blue Jays are 5-1 against the left-handed starting pitcher this season.

Prediction: Toronto Blue Jays (-133)

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The Giants offense is the second-worst in the league, while the Blue Jays’ defense is the third-best in the league, so we shouldn’t expect to see a bunch of runs on this one. The under is 12-3 in Toronto’s previous 15 outings at home, and it is 9-4 in Giants’ last 13 showings on the road, so I’m backing the under.

Prediction: Under 8.5 (+105)

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

The Blue Jays had nine hits last night, and they surpassed a 7-hit mark in eight of their previous nine outings. Hereof, I’m backing them to continue with a strong performance at-bat even though the Giants possess the 3rd-best pitching in the league.

Prediction: Team Hits: Toronto Blue Jays over 7.5 (-110)

First Five Innings Side Pick
Rating:

We saw five runs over the first five innings in the opening game last night. Three of the Giants’ last six games overall had five or more runs over the first five innings, while five of the Blue Jays’ previous six games overall had five or more runs over the first five innings. I don’t expect to see a high-scoring affair today, but both teams are efficient early in the game, so I’m backing the over.

Prediction: Over 4.5 (-115)
