Toronto Blue Jays vs Houston Astros 4/23/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Toronto Blue Jays will go against the Houston Astros in MLB action in Minute Maid Park, TX, on Saturday, April 23, 2022, at 4:10 PM ET.

 

Last year’s Toronto Blue Jays were a fantastic offensive squad, and they’re off to a good start this year. They are now eighth in the league with a .726 OPS and 16 home homers.

 

They are hitting well, and one of the reasons is that third baseman Matt Chapman was hitting well in his previous five matches, going 8-for-21 with a home run and four RBI while slugging .571 in that span.

 

This Toronto team will do well if he can continue to hit well and put some of the team’s strong offensive on his shoulders.

 

Alek Manoah established himself as one of the top young pitchers in the game, going 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA thus far this year.

 

Manoah was exceptionally effective at forcing soft contact, as his hard-hit percentage is in the 86th percentile. He throws four pitches consistently and needs to make sure the slider isn’t missing and the changeup isn’t pounding lefties. The Astros are a good club that might give him fits, so that will be something to watch out for.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Toronto’s previous 5 matches.
  • The Toronto Blue Jays are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches.
  • Toronto is 6-12 SU in their last 18 matches against Houston.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Houston Astros Predictions 4/23/2022

 

This year, the Houston Astros have a championship core and are attempting to keep the window open as one of the finest teams in recent memory. They dropped Carlos Correa throughout the summer and are currently ranked 22nd in the league with a.637 OPS.

 

Yuli Gurriel, the first baseman, has to raise up his game after going 1-for-18 with a.056/.105/.111 slash line, three walks, and three strikeouts in his previous five matches. It will be a tremendous benefit if Houston can find out how to survive without former AL MVP Jose Altuve, who is on the Injured List.

 

Jose Urquidy, who is 1-1 with a 7.00 ERA to start the season, wants to keep improving. His Baseball Savant metrics weren’t great, as he failed to get batters to swing and miss, with a whiff % in the second percentile. He possesses a solid five-pitch arsenal, but his four-seam fastball is used over 55% of the time.

 

Urquidy also underperformed against the Blue Jays in his career, going 1-1 in two appearances with eight runs on 13 hits, a walk, and 7 strikeouts in 11.1 innings.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 13 of Houston’s last 20 matches.
  • The Houston Astros are 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Houston’s last 5 matches at home against Toronto.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Houston Astros. The MLB pick for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays. Toronto’s pitching was outstanding on the road this year, ranking second in the league with a 2.10 ERA and a.227 batting average in seven matches.

 

Compare this to the Houston Astros’ pitching at home, where they have a 4.33 ERA in three games at Minute Maid Park. Jose Urquidy struggled while Alek Manoah was dominant.

 

As previously said, the Blue Jays are hitting well, while the Astros struggled in the opening few weeks of the season. Overall, the Toronto Blue Jays are the team to beat on the road. The Toronto Blue Jays will win to a predicted score of 5-3.
