Royals vs. Blue Jays Odds
|Blue Jays Odds||-225|
|Time||7:07 p.m. ET|
The Royals head to Toronto to take on the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre on Friday evening.
Toronto came into Friday morning 4 1/2 games back of a Wild Card spot in the AL and will surely be looking to build momentum as they kick off this three-game set against the red-hot Royals.
Kansas City, while sporting an unimpressive 45-56 record entering Friday night, has been one of the hottest teams in baseball as of late. The Royals are coming off a series win over the AL Central-leading White Sox. Before the White Sox series even started, the Royals had already ripped off a five-game win streak.
A combination of some timely hitting and several great outings on the mound has powered Kansas City through both some tough and not-so-tough opponents post-All-Star break.
The Blue Jays will definitely fall under the “tough” category, with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and the Toronto offense producing well all season. Toronto is coming off of a 13-2 blowout win over the Red Sox in which Guerror Jr. had a three-run homer.
Despite Toronto’s impressive showing of power on Thursday and the recent success of the Royals, our latest PRO Report still shows serious value on the total.
