Toronto Blue Jays vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 4/5/2023


Against Toronto, the Kansas City Royals dominated early, taking a commanding 7-0 lead before their opponents could even score a single point.


Pitcher Brady Singer was instrumental in this, holding Toronto to just one run on two hits during his five innings on the mound.


The Royals had struggled in their opening series, losing all three games at home. However, with this win, they now have a 1-3 record at home.


The team’s offense had been lackluster, failing to score any runs in their first two games against the Twins. In fact, their seven runs in this game were more than they had scored in their first three games combined.


Salvador Perez has been the standout player for the Royals, with a batting average of .364.


Despite the team’s offensive struggles, their pitching staff has been performing well, with a team ERA of 3.75 that ranks 12th in the league.


The starting rotation, in particular, has been strong, with an ERA of 2.66 and only six earned runs allowed in 20.1 innings pitched.


Looking ahead, Zack Greinke will aim to continue the team’s momentum after a solid but ultimately unsuccessful outing in his opening start of the season, where he allowed just two runs in 5.1 innings.


  • The total went OVER in 4 of Kansas City’s last 6 matches with the Blue Jays.
  • The total hung OVER in 4 of Kansas City’s last 6 games at home.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 5 of Kansas City’s last 7 games at home against Toronto.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays. Kansas City jumped all over Berrios on Monday and it is not surprising.


The Toronto staff must still think it is spring training as they have had no answers on how to shut down opponents. Manoah is coming off an impressive season that had him in the conversation for Cy Young, but 


The Blue Jays bullpen has not been lights out. They have been better than the starters (3.68), but have a 1.57 WHIP, so there is plenty of opportunity for Kansas City to score throughout this game.


Greinke has had mixed results in his career against the Blue Jays, going 5-5 with a 4.08 in 15 appearances.


He was rocked for four runs in four innings by Toronto on July 15, but that broke a string of three straight victories against the Blue Jays. Prediction : Toronto will win 7-5.
