Blue Jays vs Indians: Hot MLB Squads Tussle in Toronto

Blue Jays vs Indians: Hot MLB Squads Tussle in Toronto

Toronto Blue Jays: Enjoying a record setting August

On the verge of establishing a franchise record, for the best single month winning percentage in their 39-year team history, Toronto looks to remain on their red-hot roll. The Blue Jays can earn a .814 August winning percentage if they push their record to 22-5 this month with a win over Cleveland here. Toronto is 74-56 overall and they lead the New York Yankees by 1.5 games in the AL East Division playoff race. The Jays recent 8-1 record has been amazing as Toronto's best batting order in baseball has annihilated their opponents by an 84-26 margin that is good for a 9.3 - 3.2 average per contest.

Cleveland Indians: Clinging to a faint MLB AL Wild Card playoff hope

Take away the 7-13 record they posted coming out of the MLB All- Star break and there’s no telling where Cleveland would be at this point. The Indians have turned it around some as they are 14-7 since August 8 and the Tribe have won five straight contests by a combined 38-14 count. Thanks to some equally hot teams around them, their 63-66 record has Cleveland 13 games out in the AL Central and five games back in the AL Wild Card race. Following a weekend home sweep of the suddenly hapless LA Angels, Cleveland opens a nine-game road trip in Toronto. The Tribe are in tough tonight.

Toronto vs Cleveland Call: We get a fairly close pitchers duel as LHP David Price (13-4 ERA 2.42) and RHP Danny Salazar hook up here. The way both teams are swinging their bats - the pitchers had better be ready for this contest. Price has been rock solid posting a 1.98 ERA in his first five starts for the Blue Jays. Salazar had allowed just three runs over three starts prior to getting knocked around in a short 4.2 inning outing during the Indians 6-2 loss to the Yankees in his last start. Anyone betting against the Blue Jays at this point, especially with their newly minted ace on the bump, is playing with fire. Load up on Toronto with a 1000 unit wager on the money line posted at the Bovada sportsbook.
