Brewers at Blue Jays picks and predictions


Brewers 6 Blue Jays 5


This pick has more to do with Manoah than anything regarding the Blue Jays’ lineup. I don’t doubt that Toronto will plate a handful of runs against Teheran and the Brewers but I don’t trust Manoah against Milwaukee. He has 1 quality start all season and has walked at least 4 batters in 7 starts this year.

His lack of control and his susceptibility to the long ball should keep the Brewers in this game. Bet BREWERS (+140) to win outright on the road.

Run line/Against the spread

If Teheran can give the Brewers 5 good innings like he did in his 1st start of the season Milwaukee will have a great chance to win this game. Manoah is struggling badly right now and the Blue Jays have lost each of his last 5 starts 4 of which were by at least 3 runs.

I like the BREWERS +1.5 (-140) to cover but I prefer the money line at +140.


The total has gone Over in 7 of the Blue Jays’ last 10 games and there have been at least 9 runs scored in each of Manoah’s last 5 starts. The Over is 5-4-1 in the Brewers’ last 10 games so the trend isn’t as glaring as the Blue Jays’ but this should still be a high-scoring game at Rogers Centre.

BET OVER 9.5 (-115).
