Why The Blue Jays Will Cover The Spread/Win

The Blue Jays have struggled to hit the ball this season. They are just 23rd in batting average, 17th in on-base percentage, and 29th in runs. Also, they are only 27th in home runs and 23rd in slugging percentage.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is looking for more consistency. Currently, he is batting .279 with four home runs, 22 RBIs, and 21 runs. Guerrero also needs to show he can lead this team. Ultimately, he is 2 for 9 with a double and an RBI in his career against Manning. Bo Bichette is struggling. So far, he is hitting .233 with three home runs, 19 RBIs, and 15 runs. Bichette is also just 1 for 8 against Manning.

George Springer looks like he is on the decline of his career. Sadly, he is batting just .194 with three home runs, eight RBIs, and 17 runs. Justin Turner is also struggling. Currently, he is hitting .225 with four home runs, 16 RBIs, and 18 runs. The Jays need more out of Springer and Turner to have a chance for this offense to gel.

The Blue Jays have also had bad pitching. Ultimately, they are 21st in team ERA. The bullpen has not been much better, ranking 28th in team ERA. Therefore, their entire staff has work to do to remedy the situation.

The Blue Jays will cover the spread if their lineup can generate some scoring. Then, they need to have a good game from Manoah.

Why The Tigers Will Cover The Spread/Win

The Tigers have also shown some inconsistency at the plate. So far, they are 19th in batting average and 22nd in on-base percentage. Detroit also ranks 20th in runs, 29th in home runs, and 22nd in slugging percentage. Unfortunately, many of their players are not getting the job done.

Spencer Torkelson is batting .213 with three home runs, 17 RBIs, and 21 runs. Also, he is 2 for 5 with an RBI against Manoah. Riley Greene is hitting just .240 with nine home runs, 20 RBIs, and 32 runs. Likewise, he is 1 for 5 against Manoah. Kerry Carpenter is producing. So far, he is batting .281 with six home runs, 25 RBIs, and 17 runs. Furthermore, he is 0 for 5 against Manoah.

The Tigers have had solid pitching. So far, they are 10th in team ERA. Detroit also has a strong bullpen. Currently, their relievers rank ninth in team ERA.

The Tigers will cover the spread if they can produce big innings against Manoah and make him work. Then, they need Manning to pitch well and locate his pitches.

Final Blue Jays-Tigers Prediction & Pick

Neither team has really gotten much hitting lately. Additionally, both teams have stumbled in recent memory. But the Jays also have the hotter pitcher. Yet, it is difficult to trust Manoah completely. Consequently, both pitchers will make enough mistakes to give the offense some legs. While neither team has an explosive offense, it is noteworthy to add that the Blue Jays have hit the over on 41.7 percent of their games, while the Tigers have hit it 56.3 percent of the time. Expect the pendulum to swing in that direction, with both teams scoring some runs.
