Toronto Blue Jays vs Detroit Tigers 7/9/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Toronto Blue Jays will go against the Detroit Tigers in MLB action in Comerica Park, MI, on Sunday, July 9, 2023, at 1:40 PM ET.


The Blue Jays enjoyed a four-game winning streak before the game on Saturday, and they also passed the Yankees for the last AL wild card slot. They’ll attempt to leave Detroit victorious to keep moving up the standings.


Toronto’s success so far was mainly due to its pitching, and Chris Bassitt will make the team’s last first-half start.


In April, Bassitt faced Detroit and threw 6.0 innings, giving up just two runs. Similar to his previous two outings, in which he pitched a combined 12.0 innings and gave up three runs, it ended in a victory.


With a 5.74 ERA on the road, Bassitt could have been more effective, but the Blue Jays have a potent bullpen behind him. Things on the mound shouldn’t be an issue against a meager offense. 


Toronto’s lineup did not live up to high expectations at the plate. The Canadian squad has played well lately, averaging over six runs per game during their first six games of July.


The Blue Jays’ batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage are all among the top 10. The strikeout rate in Toronto is also among the top 10.


Drawing walks is a problem, but they can afford to take more chances with the ball in play when they have hitters who can swing the bat as well as some of theirs can. 


Pitchers for the Blue Jays entered games 94 times with runners on base, in addition to 92 outings in high-leverage situations. The relievers are eighth in the league with 51 holds this season.


The Blue Jays’ relievers entered 89 save opportunities with a 78.9% save percentage. This year, they made 30 saves and missed 8 of their 38 opportunities to make a stop.


Over the season, the relievers received 134 runners and 21.6%ed of them reached base. For the year, the Blue Jays sent 292 relievers to the mound. 


  • The total went UNDER in four of Toronto’s last five matches.
  • The Toronto Blue Jays are 4-1 SU in their last five matches.
  • The Toronto Blue Jays are 10-4 SU in their previous 14 games against Detroit.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Detroit Tigers Predictions 7/9/2023


Detroit’s only chance of making the playoffs is through the weak AL Central, where they still have a chance. Even so, they would need to win far more frequently than they have throughout nearly 90 games.


Don’t put your money on an offense that only beats two opponents in scoring.


Regarding batting average, on-base percentage (OBP), slugging percentage, stolen bases, and home runs, the Tigers are among the poorest teams in MLB.


The Tigers’ offensive resume could be more impressive, save for their ability to hit triples. There must be a change. 


Although Detroit recently threw several duds, pitching overall improved during the season. The Tigers’ 12-2 defeat on Friday was the sixth time since June 27 that they let up at least eight runs.


None of those games included Tarik Skubal on the mound because of his untouchable return.


On Tuesday, Skubal faced the Athletics in his first game of the year and went four innings without allowing a hit while striking out six batters and walking none.


His lone flaw was being a hitter who got hit. Detroit ultimately lost because the offense above failed to score, but his promising young career transitioned back to the majors wonderfully.


The Tigers now have 80 save opportunities, with 47 holds and 14 missed saves. In 31 save opportunities, Detroit used bullpen pitchers, who earned 17 saves.


Their bullpen relievers took the mound 98 times with runners on base and 95 times in high-pressure situations. Out of their 136 inherited runners, Detroit’s relievers have a 34.6% success rate in scoring them.


They sent 279 bullpen relievers to the mound this season, ranking 24th in the MLB with a save percentage of 54.8%. 


  • The total went UNDER in 16 of Detroit’s last 19 matches against Toronto.
  • The Detroit Tigers are 2-4 SU in their previous six games at home.
  • The total went UNDER in seven of Detroit’s last nine games at home against Toronto. 

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Detroit Tigers The MLB pick for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays. Detroit’s offense is entirely fading at this point.


The Tigers’ offense showed little life throughout this homestand leading up to the break, except for the series finale against Oakland.


If Skubal is on point again, Toronto will struggle, but the Blue Jays’ offense will ultimately scrape runs over the plate.


On the other hand, the Tigers may be only able to score three runs against any club that pitches as effectively as Toronto does.


The guests win by a large margin as they depart. The Toronto Blue Jays will win by a predicted score of 5-4.
