Rays @ Blue Jays

Blue Jays +1.5 (155*) has a 57% probability

The Rays and Blue Jays series rolls on and we’re looking for Toronto to continue their very impressive form.

The Blue Jays are on a home run hot streak which included 6 homers in the first game of the series against Tampa Bay yesterday. An impressive performance is hard to ignore, and we believe it will continue into Saturday.

Red Sox @ Yankees

Red Sox +1.5 (-135*) has a 62% probability

The Yankees were comprehensive in their 10-3 demolition of Boston yesterday, but we anticipate a change in fortunes for the Red Sox today.

The Yankees starting pitcher, James Paxton, has had a rough start to the year in starts, going 0-1 with an ERA of 7.84. Look for his woes to continue as the Red Sox level up this four-game series at 1-1.

 

Royals @ Twins ­– Game 2 of doubleheader

Over 7.5 runs (-110*) has a 65% probability

Two games on the card for the Royals and Twins today, but it’s the second game of the doubleheader that we’re focused on.

With the two starting pitchers both giving up multiple hits and runs in their games so far this season, our data predictions see this one sailing over quite easily.

Mariners @ Astros

Astros at the moneyline (-240*) has a 71% probability

This play won’t have you calling into work on Monday to tell them that you’ve retired, but it is a great boost for your weekend parlays.

Houston were simply irresistible in their match against the Mariners yesterday, completely destroying them from the very first inning. Expect that to continue today.

Padres @ Diamondbacks

Diamondbacks +1.5 (-150*) has a 63% probability

On paper this looks to be a great game with two evenly matched teams coming up against each other, but we see Arizona’s hot form (winning six of their past nine) as being too much for the Padres. Take them at the runline.
