Blue Jays vs Brewers Betting Pick
This game will be played at American Family Field at 8:10 PM ET on Friday, June 24, 2022.
Why Bet The Blue Jays:
✅ Alek Manoah will get the nod for the Jays, and the 24-year-old righty is looking to bounce back from a rough loss against the mighty New York Yankees. Last Saturday, Manoah yielded four earned runs on six hits and a walk across 5.1 innings of work in a 4-0 home defeat to the Bombers. It was his first bad outing of the season, and Manoah still holds a terrific 8-2 record, 2.00 ERA, 2.91 FIP, and 0.94 WHIP in 13 starts (81 innings pitched) in 2022. Alek’s barrel percentage ranks in the 95th percentile in the big leagues, while his four-seamer has a minus-ten run value.
✅ Adrian Houser (4-7; 4.24 ERA; 1.43 WHIP) will get the starting call for the Brewers. The 29-year-old righty took a win at Cincinnati last Sunday, allowing three earned runs on four hits and four free passes across six innings. Houser has struggled a lot in the last few weeks, going 1-3 with a 6.31 ERA and 5.35 FIP through 25.2 innings in his previous five starts.
✅ The Blue Jays are only 11-10 in June, but their offense has scored a whopping 132 runs in that span while hitting an excellent .287/.354/.510. They’ve slugged 39 home runs and 50 extra-base hits in that 21-game stretch, while Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has eight dingers and a 1.011 OPS across 98 plate appearances in June.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays have dropped six of their last nine games, including a couple of road losses at the Yankees and White Sox. They beat Chicago 9-5 last Wednesday to improve to 39-30 on the season, still sitting 12 games behind the mighty Yankees in the AL East. The Jays hold a 4.65 ERA and .264 opposing batting average in June, and pitching remains their biggest issue.
The 39-32 Brewers played the Cardinals in their four-game series finale in Milwaukee on Thursday afternoon. At the time of writing, the Brewers had a 2-1 deficit in the top of the fourth inning, trying to avoid their third straight loss. Milwaukee has gone only 7-13 through its first 20 outings in June, posting a 4.51 ERA.
