Detroit Tigers vs Toronto Blue Jays 4/12/2023 Odds, Picks and Predictions

In the opening game of their series, the Toronto Blue Jays welcomed the struggling Detroit Tigers to Rogers Centre on Tuesday night. While Detroit initially took a 3-0 lead in the second inning, Toronto bounced back with a vengeance, ultimately securing a convincing 9-3 victory on their home turf. The Blue Jays put on a formidable offensive display, with five players hitting home runs, while their bullpen held Detroit hitless for 1.2 innings behind the outstanding Alex Manoah.

The Tigers have had a rocky start to their season, beginning with a series sweep by Tampa Bay before managing to take two of three games in Houston. Unfortunately, they’ve since hit a rough patch, losing their past five games by a margin of at least three runs each. While it was always unlikely that Detroit would make the playoffs, this poor performance is certainly a disappointment for the team. In an effort to turn things around, Eduardo Rodriguez will take the mound for his third start of the season on Wednesday. The former Boston pitcher has faced Toronto 17 times in his career, but has struggled against them, posting a 5.20 ERA and giving up 17 home runs (tied for the most he’s given up to any team).

  • The total stayed  UNDER in 12 of Detroit’s last 13 games on the road against the Raptors.
  • Detroit is 2-11 SU in their last 13 games against an opponent in the American League.
  • The Tigers are 0-8 SU in their last 8 games against an opponent in the AL East Division.

After a sluggish start to the season, Toronto’s renowned power hitters failed to make a significant impact in their opening series. However, since then, the Blue Jays have bounced back impressively, hitting a total of 15 home runs over their past eight games. With only one loss in their last seven matches, it’s evident that the resurgence of their power hitters is no coincidence. This development is particularly crucial given the competitiveness of the AL East division this season. Toronto’s upcoming home series against Detroit presents a prime opportunity for them to solidify their position in the division.

Leading the charge for Toronto on the mound is pitcher Kevin Gausman, who has been in excellent form so far this season, boasting an impressive 14 strikeouts and a mere three walks in his 12 innings pitched, without allowing an earned run. Gausman’s previous outing against the Tigers last year saw him limit Detroit to just two runs, with one being unearned, in 6 innings of work. Additionally, Toronto’s bullpen has been rock solid, effectively shutting down Detroit’s offense in the series opener.

  • The total went OVER in 6 of Toronto’s last 7 games at home.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 12 of Toronto’s last 13 games at home against Detroit.
  • The Raptors are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the American League.

Detroit Tigers vs Toronto Blue Jays. The MLB pick for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays. Kevin Gausman has been a dominant force on the mound this season, with an impressive record that speaks to his skill as a top-tier starting pitcher. Despite his consistently solid performances, however, Gausman has been held back by a lack of offensive support from his team, leaving him without the wins he rightfully deserves. In his most recent outing, Gausman delivered yet another Quality Start, extending his streak of excellent play over six consecutive starts. After taking some time away from the game to deal with personal matters, Gausman has returned with renewed vigor, and he’s once again looking like one of the most formidable pitchers in the league. Toronto will handle their opponents with ease, and a 5-2  win is likely.
