MLB Betting Prediction: Toronto Blue Jays vs. San Francisco Giants 7/9/2024

Toronto Blue Jays (39-48) vs. San Francisco Giants (43-45)

On Tuesday, July 9th at Oracle Park on Tuesday July 9, the Toronto Blue Jays face the San Francisco Giants in an intriguing MLB contest that promises an intriguing matchup as both teams look to improve upon recent struggles (1-4 record) against an improved San Francisco Giants squad (3-2 in last five outings) that presents both teams with an opportunity to move higher up in their standings and provide live betting fans an intriguing spectacle.

The Blue Jays’ performance this season has been far from impressive, boasting an uninspiring record and struggle on the road particularly. Their average batting average stands at.235 with an slugging percentage of just.374, creating difficulty for running off 348 runs from 671 hits. Their pitching staff however boasts an acceptable 4.37 ERA with moderate command issues (WHIP=1.3). To turn their poor form around they need both their strong pitching staff as well as an offensive boost that sparks new offensive spark off-field.

San Francisco Giants have posted slightly improved statistics, boasting a.246 batting average and stronger slugging percentage of.392. They’ve scored 390 runs thanks to 732 hits and 89 homers; their pitching, however, mirrors those of Blue Jays with an ERA of 4.44 and WHIP of 1.35 similarity which indicates their pitchers allow too many batters reach base safely; although their superior offensive performance could give them the edge here at home.

Yusei Kikuchi (4-8, 4.12 ERA) vs. Jordan Hicks (4-5, 3.47 ERA)

Yusei Kikuchi of the Toronto Blue Jays offers both challenge and opportunity as their starting pitcher, boasting an overall 4-8 record with an ERA of 4.12 over 94 innings this year. Kikuchi has shown remarkable strikeout ability (98 strikeouts!) yet was susceptible to giving up crucial hits including 13 homers. His style can often result in high strikeout numbers; however, this aggressiveness also leaves him susceptible to giving up key hits when his pitches miss their targets, so for maximum effectiveness his focus must remain on controlling his pitches while limiting walks in order to reduce extra runners being put onto base during starts by Kikuchi himself!

Jordan Hicks from the San Francisco Giants offers a contrasting approach, sporting an overall record of 4-5 and an ERA of 3.47. Despite enduring control issues – as evidenced by 35 walks over 90 innings pitched – Hicks has done an admirable job keeping his team competitive by restricting opponent scoring and inducing ground balls for escape routes from difficult situations; something which may prove especially crucial against a Blue Jays lineup struggling to drive runs constantly. Hicks performance during this matchup will be essential as his ability to manage innings while keeping pitch count efficient could prove pivotal versus an eventual Blue Jays win or loss!


MLB Odds/Point Spread: TBD, Total Odds: TBD

As of now, betting odds for this matchup remain to-be-determined; however, bettors should keep an eye out as game day approaches for updates relating to pitching matchup and recent form between both teams.


Toronto Blue Jays Betting Trends

The Blue Jays have lost four straight and have an even worse record against the spread, going just 1-4 against it over their last five games. Bettors might consider backing Toronto to cover since their road performances tend to outshout home ones; 22-20 on that front gives bettors plenty of reason to do so.


San Francisco Giants Betting Trends

The Giants boasting an even 3-2 record both over their last five games and against the spread demonstrate inconsistency in their play. Their poor road against-spread (19-25) does not impede this matchup; rather their potential ability to beat it at home might draw wagers in.


Toronto Blue Jays vs. San Francisco Giants 7/9/2024 Betting Picks

By looking at recent performances and overall data, it appears the Giants may hold a slight advantage against the Blue Jays; especially due to Hicks’ ability to manage games more adeptly than his statistics suggest. But this game could prove closer than expected due to both teams’ unpredictability.

As when making MLB daily picks, betting the total runs might be wise given both teams’ tendency for games to go over. Also consider that Hicks may make Giants wins at home more likely and more secure.
