The Toronto Blue Jays will be looking for another win as they head host the San Diego Padres on Saturday. The Blue Jays are currently 20-31 after losing to the Padres in their last game. Meanwhile, the Padres are 27-24 after beating the Blue Jays in their last game. Now, both teams will be looking to improve upon their respective records in this game.

Padres Look To Extend Win Streak

The San Diego Padres entered the 2019 season with hopes of finishing the season somewhere around a .500 record. So far this season, the team has managed to win the 27 of its first 51 games as the team has showcased its potential early this season. In addition, the Padres have also won each of their last four games including the first game of this series against the Blue Jays. Although it is really early in the season, San Diego’s new pieces have looked like they can help the team become a potential threat to win an NL Wild Card spot.

The San Diego Padres are led by third baseman Manny Machado who has been tremendous over the last few seasons. Last season, Machado hit 37 home runs along with 107 RBIs. However, that was with the Baltimore Orioles and the Los Angeles Dodgers which is important to note since he decided to sign a massive contract with the San Diego Padres this offseason. So far this season, Machado has been decent as he has nine home runs and 26 RBIs.

Toronto Continues To Struggle At Home

The Toronto Blue Jays entered the 2019 season with the hopes of finishing the season with a winning record. However, the team is projected to win around 74 games this season so it is expected to remain below the .500 mark throughout the majority of the season. So far this season, the team has looked below average as it has managed to win just 20 of its first 51 games this season including a loss in the team’s game yesterday. To make matters worse, the team has lost 17 of its first 26 games at home this season and will now have to play another home game tomorrow.

The Toronto Blue Jays are led by first baseman Justin Smoak who was solid last season. Last season, Smoak hit 25 home runs along with 77 RBIs. However, he struggled with his contact hitting as he only batted .242 but had a .350 on-base percentage. In the team’s first 51 games of the season, he is only batting .217 with eight home runs and 23 RBIs. Although those statistics are disappointing to say the least, he does also have a .371 on-base percentage which makes him an extremely difficult batter to deal with.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Simply put, I believe that San Diego is the better of these two teams and it is not even close. San Diego has filled its roster with a bunch of young and newly-acquired talent while the Blue Jays still look like one of the most underwhelming home teams in baseball. I expect this game to be close throughout but I think the Padres will do just enough to squeak out of this game with a victory.

Prediction: San Diego Padres

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Since both of these teams possess below average pitching staffs, I have to lean to the over in this game. Furthermore, the the Padres have the ability to put up at least six runs in any baseball game so I think that this total is too low. I can see this game being somewhere in the realm of 6-4 so I will recommend the over in this game.

Prediction: Over 9.5
