Houston Astros vs Toronto Blue Jays 5/1/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Houston Astros will meet with the Toronto Blue Jays in MLB action in Rogers Center, ON, Can, on Sunday, May 1, 2022, at 1:37 PM ET. After putting up with their lineup for the greater part of April, it looks like key members of the storied Houston Astros lineup are starting to heat up.

 

Yuli Gurriel, last year’s AL batting champion, had his first three-hit game of the season on Friday night, while Yander Alvarez appeared to be finding his stride with a 3-for-4 effort that included his team-leading fifth home run.

 

In addition, right fielder Kyle Tucker finally raised his season average above.200, and he had a recent power surge with three home runs in the last week. Houston may be ready to cause some havoc now that Jose Altuve returned to the lineup.

 

Alvarez continued to show off his power stroke on Saturday, hitting his sixth home run of the year, but that was all the Astros could muster in a 2-1 loss. After giving up 2 solo home runs in the afternoon, Luis Garcia (1-2) was the unlucky loser. Going into Sunday’s rubber match, Houston is 11-10 on the year.

 

The Astros are back over .500, and they’re hoping that their better health will show up in the standings. They are now in the second position in the division, trailing only the Angels, who are on fire. The Astros will play seven games at home after Sunday’s game, 3 against Seattle and 4 against Detroit.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Houston’s last 6 matches.
  • The Houston Astros are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Houston’s last 5 matches on the road.

Houston Astros vs Toronto Blue Jays Predictions 5/1/2022

 

While the Blue Jays‘ youthful offense took the most of the attention, the front office quietly put together a quality starting staff, highlighted by Jose Berrios, Alek Manoah, and Sunday’s starter Kevin Gausman.

 

Prior to Saturday’s start by Berrios, the three combined to win six games with only one defeat and threw eight excellent starts this year. Berrios maintained his outstanding performance on Saturday, lasting 5.2 innings and battling 7 hits and runners on base in practically every inning.

 

With 2 solo home runs, including his 46th career leadoff home run, George Springer supplied all the offense Berrios would need. Jordan Romano recorded his tenth save with a flawless ninth inning, extending his Blue Jays’ record for most saves in April to ten.

 

Toronto’s record presently stands at 14-8. While the Blue Jays’ lineup is deserving of the fanfare, they did not start the season as well as they did last year.

 

They presently rank 15th in runs scored, 28th in walks per game, and 15th in on-base percentage in baseball. As a result, while having identical power stats to last season, the runs arrived in solitary doses rather than in a flurry of skewed innings.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 9 of Toronto’s last 13 matches.
  • The Toronto Blue Jays are 8-3 SU in their last 11 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Toronto’s last 7 matches against Houston.

Houston Astros vs Toronto Blue Jays. The MLB pick for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays. Valdez has a difficult matchup against a right-handed-heavy Blue Jays lineup that is yet to have a breakout game this year.

 

Gausman is also a strike-thrower who will not put himself in a position where he will have men crowding the bases. This is a fantastic opportunity for Toronto to make a statement and sweep the defending AL champs for the second consecutive season. Toronto will win by a predicted score of 5-2.
