The Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays begin a doubleheader with a matinee contest at 12:07 p.m. ET on Saturday. Toronto is listed as a -140 favorite (risk $140 to win $100), while the Over-Under is set at 7.5 at Caesars Sportsbook (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our MLB odds page). 

Before making any Rays vs. Blue Jays 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 off to a strong start to the 2022 season. It's on a 59-51 run on top-rated MLB money-line picks through 12 weeks. This is the same model that pegged the 2021 Atlanta Braves as one of three best bets to win it all last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen profitable returns.

The model knows the Rays are sending Shane McClanahan to the mound in Saturday's opener. The left-hander is dominating the competition in 2022, posting a league-leading 1.77 ERA. He also leads the AL in strikeouts, WHIP, and strikeout-to-walk ratio. McClanahan has a 1.07 ERA in the last nine starts, and he gives Tampa Bay a strong chance each and every time he takes the hill.

The model also knows the Blue Jays bring a high-powered offense. Toronto leads the AL in on-base percentage and slugging percentage this season. The Blue Jays are also in the top three of the league in runs scored, home runs, and doubles, with quality starting pitching behind Kevin Gausman. He has a 2.93 ERA after earning All-Star honors during the 2021 campaign, and the Blue Jays are 25-15 at home this season.

Now, it has set its sights on Rays vs. Blue Jays. We can tell you the model is leaning over the total, and it also says one team has ALL the value! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks.
