Braves vs Blue Jays Betting Prediction and Analysis for 05/12/2023
The Blue Jays currently rank 4 in the AL East with a 21-16 record after a 2-1 loss against Philadelphia. During the tenth inning, Bo Bichette made an error which led to Philadelphia scoring which cost them the game. At the moment, Toronto has lost their last 7 of 10 games and are happy to be playing at home.
This is because they are 9-3 at home and tend to have better pitching and results. In addition, this is especially crucial as pitching has been a major problem for Toronto in their last 10 games. According to baseball betting odds and statistics, their pitching staff have let 6 or more runs during these games.
For tonight’s matchup, Toronto will have Chris Bassitt on the mound as Hyun-jin Ryu is still recovering ilfrom his surgery. Unfortunately for Korean baseball betting fans of Ryu, he will probably not be playing for the rest of the season. However, Bassitt has been pretty solid this season and has been a very consistent pitcher this season.
As to the Atlanta Braves, they visit Toronto after losing 5-2 to Boston and ending their 3-game winning streak. At the moment, they have 25-12 record and lead the NL East with Ronald Acuna Jr. batting .347. Furthermore, the Atlanta offense is scoring 5.37 runs per game, while batting .262, with a .342 on-base percentage.

Bet on the Toronto Blue Jays at +135
The Atlanta Braves are a definite powerhouse this year and a team to reckon with. With Strider on the mound, the odds are definitively in favor of the Braves. However, it makes for a pretty bad baseball betting profit and not worth the risk.
From a statistical point of view, betting on the Blue Jays is worth the risk. This is because Atlanta has lost 5 of their last 6 games in Toronto. In addition, Toronto has won 5 of their last 6 games at home. Therefore, we predict the Toronto Blue Jays will win and cover the spread with a final score of 6-3.
