Toronto Blue Jays vs Houston Astros Predictions 4/17/2023

 

With four victories in their previous six matches, the Astros were playing well over the past week.

 

With a victory over the Blue Jays, which would be their fifth victory in their previous seven games, they will attempt to maintain their winning streak.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Houston Astros. The MLB pick for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays. Five of the Blue Jays’ last seven matches and five of their last six away games ended in victories.

 

They produced 21 runs in their last three road games, a sign of their strong offensive play. Since they dominated right-handed pitching this season and Javier struggled on the mound thus far, allowing eight runs in three starts, so anticipate them to do well offensively in this one.

 

In his lone start against the Blue Jays, he too had pitching issues, surrendering five runs in the defeat. Their bullpen also played poorly, so it will be difficult for them to contain Toronto’s powerful bats.

 

The Astros dropped four of their last six home games while splitting their last four contests.

 

They scored 18 runs in their last three home games, showing good offensive play, but they will struggle in this game because Gausman pitched effectively on the road, giving up three runs in two outings.

 

The Toronto Blue Jays will win to a predicted score of 6-2.
