The Royals were 12 matches behind Minnesota in the American League Central before Saturday’s games. They are 11.5 games down for the last AL Wild Card slot.

Kansas City Royals vs Toronto Blue Jays Predictions 7/17/2022

 

Toronto is a fairly unpredictable team this year; after going on an eight-game winning streak at the end of May, they spent much of June circling the.500 mark.

 

With nine losses in 10 matches, the Blue Jays had a horrible start to the month of July. They started to become better after entering the match on Saturday having won three of their previous four games.

 

For third place in the AL East, the Blue Jays sit 14.5 matches behind the Yankees. They are tied with Boston for the last AL Wild Card spot.

 

The Blue Jays have a powerful offense, as seen by their second-best big league batting average (.261). Their finest player is shortstop Bo Bichette, who has 98 hits and 49 RBIs. First baseman Vlad Guerrero Jr. has 20 home runs and 56 runs scored for him.

 

On Sunday, Toronto is expected to start right-handed pitcher Jose Berrios. On Tuesday, he faced Philadelphia and pitched six innings, allowing three earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out a season-high 13 batters. Berrios’ season-long ERA is still depressingly high at 5.38.

 

  • The total went OVER in 4 of Toronto’s previous 6 matches. 
  • The Toronto Blue Jays are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Toronto’s last 12 matches against Kansas City.

Kansas City Royals vs Toronto Blue Jays. The MLB pick for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays. Toronto cannot afford to fall farther behind in the AL Wild Card rankings given its recent troubles.

 

On the other side, Kansas City will be keener to travel during the All-Star break. The Royals pulled off a big surprise on Thursday, but they don’t have the firepower to compete with Toronto over the course of a weekend.

 

They are missing the majority of their top players because to COVID-19 restrictions, which is detrimental to a team that was already underperforming.

 

Toronto won five of its last six games against Kansas City at home. Toronto will win predicted at 6-2.
