MLB Picks: Toronto Blue Jays vs. Baltimore Orioles

0 of 3

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher R.A. Dickey threw just 64 pitches in his last start, which is important to consider when making your MLB picks Tuesday, as he prepares to face the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

    Sports bettors will find that the Blue Jays are -115 road favorites in the pro baseball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total sits at eight in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this American League East matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a pick along the way.

Toronto Blue Jays

1 of 3

    The Toronto Blue Jays opened up a seven-game road trip with a 2-1 setback to the Baltimore Orioles as +100 underdogs Monday night, while going UNDER the posted total of 8.5.

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Blue Jays are 23-17 as road favorites of -110 or higher, with the OVER going 19-18-3 in that situation.

Baltimore Orioles

2 of 3

    The Baltimore Orioles are 5-2 on their current nine-game homestand, as they sit two games back of the Boston Red Sox in the American League East standings.

    Sports bettors will find that the Orioles are 5-11 in their last 16 games following a win.

Prediction

3 of 3

    I'm going to recommend that readers back the Toronto Blue Jays in the first five innings Tuesday night, as starting pitcher, R.A. Dickey earned a 5-0 shutout victory over the Baltimore Orioles at this ballpark on June 18 of last season.
