Toronto Blue Jays Betting Preview
The Toronto Blue Jays narrowly missed out on the MLB playoffs last season, finishing a game behind the Yankees and Red Sox for the two American League Wild Card spots. This season, the Jays will look to not just finish ahead of the Yankees and Red Sox, but the Rays as well, as they look to claim the American League East and a direct path to the playoffs. To do that, the Blue Jays will hope that some serious roster shake-ups pay off for them.
Toronto lost last year’s Cy Young award winner and a player that finished in the top-three in last year’s MVP voting in the American League. While those losses would normally have a disastrous impact on a team, the Blue Jays are still expected to be one of the best teams in the league this season. Whether or not they can deliver on those expectations is another matter entirely.

Toronto Blue Jays Predictions, Betting Picks & News
Key Additions: Kevin Gausman, Matt Chapman, Yusei Kikuchi
Key Departures: Marcus Semien, Robbie Ray, Steven Matz
It was a wild offseason for the Toronto Blue Jays, as they offloaded the third-place finisher in the AL MVP race and last season’s Cy Young award winner. Marcus Semien hit 45 home runs last season, driving in 102 runs and finishing behind teammate Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Angels dual-threat Shohei Ohtani in the voting. Robbie Ray earned 29 of the 30 first place votes for the Cy Young award, winning in a landslide, and the Jays will have to replace the production of both players this season.
They did bring in a couple of solid replacements for those two talented players, though, bringing in pitcher Kevin Gausman and third baseman Matt Chapman. Chapman hit 27 home runs last season, and should pair nicely with Guerrero Jr., even if he is not a top-three MVP candidate. Gausman was solid for the Giants last season, and will also need to make an impact after moving north of the border from the Bay Area.

Toronto was a gifted offensive team a season ago, hitting for power and average to propel them to a season with over 90 wins. The Blue Jays hit 262 home runs a season ago, and had two of the top-three AL MVP candidates in their lineup. They lost Semien, and will look to replace him with Chapman, and should still be one of the best offensive teams in the league.
The Blue Jays’ one major flaw offensively is that they are not the most patient team at the plate. They are in the bottom third of the league in walk rate, though that aggressive nature has clearly not hurt their ability to put up runs. If this team is going to make the playoffs this year, it is going to be thanks to their offensive production.

Toronto was by no means a bad pitching team last season, ranking in the top-10 in ERA and being an elite team at stranding runners. Their bullpen is what let them down on many occasions over the course of the season, especially down the stretch where some blown leads cost them a spot in the postseason. Now, the question is whether or not the starting rotation will get worse with Ray’s departure.
Fortunately for the Blue Jays, Kevin Gausman is a solid replacement, even if he is not a Cy Young caliber pitcher. Gausman had a sub-3.00 ERA last season in the NL West, a division that featured two explosive opponents in the Dodgers and Padres. He will have to face three explosive opponents in the division this year, and how he adjusts to life in the American League could determine the fate of the Blue Jays’ season.
Positives & Negatives
There are not many larger positives in baseball than the offense of the Toronto Blue Jays. They may not perform at quite as high a level as they did last season, but that is less an indictment of this year’s team and more an assertion that the Blue Jays may have trouble keeping up the incredible pace that their offense set a season ago. Vlad Guerrero Jr. will once again be in the MVP race, even if he does not have a second MVP candidate to back him up.
The biggest negative for the Blue Jays is still their bullpen, along with the fact that Gausman may struggle in adjusting to American League East baseball. This is not a pitcher-friendly division at all, especially when coming from a league where pitchers were hitting. The arms for the Blue Jays will need to hold up their end of the bargain for this team to win a title.
Toronto Blue Jays Pick & Prediction: Under 92.5
The Toronto Blue Jays are going to have a very good season this year, but hitting the 93 win mark may be a little too much to ask. They did an admirable job of trying to replace some elite-level talent from last season. But that replacement of talent still leaves them worse off than they were a year ago, and will leave them closer to 85 to 90 wins than the 93 required to hit the over here.
