Toronto Seattle : Baseball Free Pick for 9/20
Blue Jays score first blood in the Toronto Seattle series that will carry significant weight in the last two weeks of the AL Wild Card pursuit. Grab that second cup of coffee as most of us stayed up late watching Monday Night Football. HRWager beckons to you today for some key profit on the basepaths. Toronto was in danger of sliding off the Earth with their losing streak and going out west. Good for them they adjusted course with a 3-2 win over a very hot Mariners team. Now we have two very good starters to investigate and see which way the profit will come in from on this 10PM start for September 20th.
Toronto Seattle : Happ Merely Average
For the duration of the last three games, Happ of Toronto has been merely mortal. Problem is that his walks are six but he has only ten striekouts in comparison. This combined with his inability to get out of jams well has given him a WHIP of 1.30 to an ERA of 3.68. The real issue with him is that at times a team can get him to burn a lot of pitches to get him out early. He only let in three runs before three innings was over but used 85 pitches to do so. His form has returned but look for a shorter start from him with six innings max projected. Has to get into the tired bullpen of Toronto in this one.
Reverse Home Field
Here is where the lack of sellout support can flip around home field advantage. Monday saw a throng of Canadians invade, don blue, and cheer for the Blue Jays at SafeCo. Look for the same thing to happen today. Iwakuma is one of the Seattle clutch starters and has recovered his form after hitting the wall in August. With only 11 games to go, another loss to Toronto will just about kill their chances to get an AL Wild Card spot.
Steady ML price with the total moving from 7 1/2 to 8. Runline Toronto has gone down from +140 to +130 on the -1 1/2 spot. Seattle is the home dog near +110 for this one. Most of the factors will go Seattle's way here. Go with the Mariner ML in a key game for both teams. Good fortune today and we will see you next time here at HRWager.
