Not a ton of history for either starter versus their opponent’s current line-up but prefer the numbers that the Jays’ hitters have put up. Toronto did get to Indians’ starter Corey Kluber for 5 runs (4 earned) in his start on April 19th and had a lot of base runners with 9 hits and 3 walks. Toronto has been hitting everyone hard for weeks and no reason to think that they can’t go long a couple of times tonight with the roof expected to be closed. Dustin McGowan has a bloated ERA of 9.26 at home and with the Jays’ bullpen woes this game has over written all over it.
Take OVER 9 -117.
