Odds from BetOnline.ag as of 6/11/19.

For the Orioles, it will be 26-year old left-hander John Means who will open against the Blue Jays on Tuesday night. The former West Virginia product has started in a total of 10 games this season ( with 14 total appearances ) and has put up a record of 5-4 with an ERA of 2.67, a WHIP of 1.07 and a BAA of .220. The Orioles are 0-4 in his last four starts.

Means has pitched in a total of 60.2 innings this season and has yielded a total of 18 earned runs on 49 hits with seven home runs. He has walked a total of 16 batters while fanning a total of 50 batters. In his last outing, Means allowed just one earned run on four hits in 6.0 innings pitched but got the loss as the Orioles were defeated by the Texas Rangers 1-2 last June 5th.

Left fielder Trey Mancini leads Baltimore with his .299 batting average. Dwigh Smith Jr. has a total of 41 RBIs to lead the Orioles while Renato Nunez has 16 home runs to lead Baltimore this year. The Orioles are hitting at a .237 batting average and have scored a total of 261 runs on the season.

Baseball Who Wins?

The Blue Jays are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games played. Toronto is winless in their last four games played on the road. The Orioles are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games played. Baltimore is 1-3 SU in their last four games played at home. Head to head, the Blue Jays are 13-6 SU in their last 19 games against the Orioles. However, Toronto is just 2-5 SU in their last seven road games against Baltimore.

Toronto is 0-6 SU in their last six road games played, 8-25 SU in their last 33 games overall,  8-24 SU in their last 32 road games against a left-handed starter and 1-3 on their last four games overall against lefties. Baltimore is 3-12 SU in their last 15 games against an American League opponent and 3-3 SU in their last six games against a left-handed starter. When it comes to baseball betting, the Blue Jays are 16-32 SU in 48 games as underdogs this season. On the other hand, the Orioles are 2-2 SU as favorites this year.

These are two struggling ball clubs but when you look at their starters, John Means has been reliable enough this season and should have no trouble in shutting down a struggling Toronto offense. In his last outing, Means held the Rangers to one run in six innings. In his last two starts, Means has allowed just two runs in a combined 12 innings.

On the other hand, the Blue Jays have lost 10 out of their last 12 games played and were just swept by the Arizona Diamondbacks at their own home field. Toronto scored just a total of four runs in that series and I don’t think that’s going to change here against Means. I’m picking the Baltimore Orioles to beat the Toronto Blue Jays on 6/11/19.

Blue Jays

U 9 (-115)

Odds from BetOnline.ag as of 6/11/19.

The under is 7-3 in Toronto’s last 10 games played in June. The total has gone under in four out of the Blue Jays’ last six Tuesday games. Baltimore limited the Houston Astros to nine runs during their recent three-game series, the under is 4-0 in Means’ last four overall starts and the Orioles have scored four or fewer runs in seven out of their last eight games played and are also slumping at the plate. This should be a low-scoring affair. Prediction: Under 9
