dime bet – 960 TOR RL-1.5 (+125) vs 959 KAN

3% Toronto Blue Jays (-1 ½ R/+125)

Kansas City Royals (Cueto) at Toronto Blue Jays (Stroman) (-1 ½ R/+125) 8:05 ET FS1

Toronto returns home in a 0-2 series hole. That came courtesy of yet another David Price playoff meltdown. With Price on the mound in the 7th inning, the Blue Jays held to a 3-0 lead. In a blink of an eye, it evaporated to a 6-3 KC comeback win to send the more experienced Royals to Canada with a 2-0 series lead. It is a venue that clearly favors the big bats of Toronto over their small-ball ALCS rivals. Cueto has improved from his late-August/September dip, in which he blamed the catcher’s’ glove position for his faulty performance.

But, there have been no such chinks in the armor for Stroman, who has pitched solidly in every game since he began his season (knee injury) in September. Let’s go with the fresher arm at a venue which favors the home team and the bounce back motivation for a run line victory. Toronto has seen 81 of their 96 victories this season, including all 3 in post-season play, result in victories of 2 or more runs.
