The Blue Jays are the hottest team in baseball since the All-Star break last week. They have won 7 straight games and 9 of their last 10. In that span, they are outscoring opponents 80-28 and are averaging exactly 8 runs per game.
The Blue Jays and Cardinals will end a quick 2-game series in Toronto on Wednesday night. The Jays will go for the sweep and their 8th straight victory.
Along with their long win streak, the Jays’ last 4 games at home have ended with the home fans happy. A sweep of the Royals last weekend, and the win last night against the Cardinals, has Toronto playing at a high level against the two teams from Missouri.
According to FanDuel, the Blue Jays are heavy favorites against Adam Wainwright and the St. Louis Cardinals. Their second game of this six game home stand could pull Toronto within 10.5 games of the New York Yankees for the division lead.

Toronto at Home vs. St. Louis on the Road
The Blue Jays have played very well at home this season, posting a 31-19 record, opposed to their 23-24 record on the road. St. Louis has been less than stellar away from Busch Stadium, and their record away sits at 22-27.
The road woes for the Cardinals are keeping them from getting closer to the Milwaukee Brewers, who lead the division over the Cards by 3 games. They have lost 8 of their last 11 away from home, and they are 5-5 in their last 10 games overall.
The Blue Jays are Top 5 in every major offensive category this season, and the numbers do not lie. They are batting a collective .268 as a team, which is not only tops in the American League, but the entirety of Major League Baseball as well.
The jays have won 6 of their last 7 home games, as well as 4 in a row at home overall. Their 7 game win streak that they are looking to extend has seen them absolutely punish the baseball. They even scored 28 runs against the Red Sox last Friday.
Pay attention to the numbers, as the Blue Jays are putting on quite the offensive performance. They will face Adam Wainwright tonight, and he has a tendency to give up runs in bunches. He also has a little bit of trouble keeping the ball in the yard, as he has surrendered 13 home runs in 19 starts.
St. Louis Cardinals vs. Toronto Blue Jays Prediction and Best Bets
Cardinals vs. Blue Jays Prediction: Blue Jays to win
Cardinals vs. Blue Jays Best Bets: Blue Jays -1.5 (-114 at BetRivers)
There is value in the run line tonight, as the Blue Jays are heavy favorites to win their 8th in a row. I wouldn’t bet for them to win outright, just because the value and return is so low.
The Blue Jays’ offense is getting it done at the plate, so don’t be afraid to go out of your comfort zone and start betting on the run line. The lines are close enough for tonight’s game that it will be worth your while to look into betting the Jays.
