Before making any Blue Jays vs. Pirates picks, you NEED to check out the MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every MLB game 10,000 times, and it is a 309-266 on top-rated MLB money-line picks since the start of the 2021 season. This is the same model that pegged the 2021 Atlanta Braves at 10-1 as one of three best bets to win it all last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen profitable returns.
The model knows Toronto is expected to send right-hander Ross Stripling (6-4, 2.94 ERA) to the mound. Stripling has pitched well this season and has not allowed more than three earned runs in an appearance since giving up four in an 8-2 loss at Cleveland on May 7. In his last outing, he allowed three earned runs on seven hits with no walks and six strikeouts in six innings against the Los Angeles Angels, an 8-3 loss. He picked up his last win on Aug. 23 at Boston, allowing just one earned run on six hits and one walk, while striking out six in six innings of a 9-3 Blue Jays victory.
The model also knows Pittsburgh has been led by shortstop Oneil Cruz, who was 2-for-4 with a triple and an RBI on Saturday. Cruz has been hot of late with hits in five of his last seven games. At Milwaukee last week, Cruz drove in five runs with a homer in the three-game series. For the season, he has 11 homers, 36 RBIs and 26 runs scored in 60 games played.
Now, the model has set its sights on Blue Jays vs. Pirates. We can tell you the model is leaning Over the total, and it also says one side of the money line has ALL the value. You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks.
