Houston Astros vs Toronto Blue Jays 6/5/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Houston Astros will go against the Toronto Blue Jays in MLB action in Rogers Centre, Canada, on Monday, June 5, 2023, at 7:07 PM ET.


The Astros have a higher winning percentage on the road this season, even after their good weekend series against the Angels.


Brandon Bielak on the mound will give them their best chance to add to their winning streak in this matchup. This will be Bielak’s sixth start of the year and seventh overall appearance.


He gave up six home runs and 12 free passes in 31.0 innings, which raises concerns about his walk and free pass rates.


However, he was productive, sporting a 3.19 ERA for the season. His task is to keep games tight because Houston has a fantastic bullpen ready to take over after him. The Houston Astros rank second in the AL West.


Houston’s offensive performance in 2023 was not the best. Even yet, they are improving and rank 13th in runs per game. As they rank sixth in strikeout rate this season, their greatest strength is putting the ball in play.

However, Jose Altuve, an All-Star, might not be able to play for the Astros in this series. On Saturday, against the Angels, he suffered an oblique injury.


He only appeared in 11 games this season, which is another factor explaining why the Astros’ offense isn’t as strong as it was in 2022. 


This year, the Astros used 181 relief pitchers. Of the 50 runners the bullpen pitchers inherited this season, 30.0% reached home plate.


They have made 16 saves this year, but only six of their 22 chances to make saves. The Astros bullpen entered the game in 54 save situations and has a 72.7% save rate.


With 31 holds this season, the bullpen is now ranked 14th in MLB. The Astros’ relief pitchers came into the game 29 times with runners on base and made 46 outings in high-leverage situations. 


  • The total went over in six of Houston’s last nine matches.
  • The Houston Astros are 15-5 SU in their last 20 matches.
  • The total went under in eight of Houston’s last 11 matches on the road.

Houston Astros vs Toronto Blue Jays Predictions 6/5/2023


After sweeping the Mets over the weekend, the Blue Jays will fly back to their home stadium. They’ll aim to improve their stellar 27-12 record versus teams outside the AL East and their 15-10 home record.


This four-game set will begin with Alek Manoah’s right arm. Manoah had a brilliant 2022, but in 2023, after 12 starts, he had the poorest stats in his career overall.


Toronto lost each of his six outings in May, and his ERA for the month was 6.15.


Jordan Romano (15 saves) is ready to cap off victories for the Blue Jays, whose bullpen is ninth in ERA. Can Manoah help the squad gain an advantage? Toronto ranks fourth in the AL East. 


Pitchers don’t need to be dominant every night with Toronto’s offense. Before the games on Sunday, the Blue Jays were 12th in runs scored per game.


This year, they were a top-10 club in batting average, on-base percentage (OBP), slugging percentage, and stolen bases. The Blue Jays’ strikeout rate is fourth as well.


In most situations, Bo Bichette was in the driver’s seat, but Matt Chapman, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and George Springer aren’t much easier to get out of. 


The Toronto pitching staff has allowed 245 runs while maintaining a team ERA of 3.78 (220 earned runs surrendered) thus far this season.


They gave up 74 long balls and ranked 10th in MLB in runs surrendered per nine innings (4.21). The Blue Jays’ team’s WHIP is 1.267, and their 


FIP is 4.31 for the season. Their K/BB ratio at the moment is 9.50 (551 strikeouts vs. 201 free passes). With 462, they rank seventh among MLB pitching staff regarding total hits allowed. 


  • The total went under in four of Toronto’s last five matches.
  • The Toronto Blue Jays are 6-1 SU in their last seven matches.
  • The Toronto Blue Jays are 2-5 SU in their last seven matches at home. 

Houston Astros vs. Toronto Blue Jays The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros. In their 4,650 innings, the Astros turned 68.6% of balls hit into play into outs, placing them 18th in MLB.


At this point in the season, the Houston Astros were responsible for 1,550 putouts, 472 assists, and 22 errors. Their fielding percentage of.989 places them fifth among MLB teams, and they turned 50 double plays.


On the mound right now, Alek Manoah is not a man who can be relied upon. If he struggles in this game, Toronto’s offense will be responsible for hammering the best pitching staff in the league with many runs.


On most nights, it seems unlikely that the Astros will surrender many runs. This is Houston’s game to lose unless Alek Manoah puts on a flashback performance. The Houston Astros will win by a predicted score of
