The Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies continue their weekend series today, and both teams have an identical 26-25 record.

The Phillies swept Toronto in their doubleheader yesterday and will be hoping for more of the same, while the Blue Jays will be trying to capitalize early on the poor season record of Philadelphia starting pitcher Vince Valasquez.

👆Over/Under: o8.5 runs (-115*) has a 54% probability

As we outlined in our MLB Saturday Plays, the Blue Jays will need to target Phillies starting pitcher Vince Valasquez in the early innings. Expect this one to be loose early before the closers look to tighten things up.

💵Phillies H2H (+125*) has a 1.8% edge on the sportsbooks

Philly go into this one as slight underdog and our DimersBOT is identifying some value in underestimating a team who beat Toronto two times yesterday.

Run line
💪Phillies +1.5 (-131*) has a 56% probability

It’s going to be a close one. Form lines show that Toronto will most likely bust out to an early lead, so Philadelphia will most likely need to spend the game trying to reel them back in. Our predictive analysis says this is a pretty safe bet. One to add to your parlays.


Dimers' take-out

Most recent form says the Phillies are the hot team while the starting pitcher lineups would suggest that Toronto might be able to dine out on a pitcher down on his luck. Stick with our best bet here and cheer on the homers.
