The Tampa Bay Rays will try to avoid being swept on Saturday when they face the Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays are third in the AL East with a 44-33 record.
They have won 4 of the last 5 games including the first two of the series against the Rays.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has 18 home runs, 37 walks and 49 RBI while hitting .261 for the Blue Jays. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. is 15-for-36 with five doubles, a home run and five RBI over the last 10 games.
The Blue Jays have 5 of the last 6 games against AL East opponents and 14 of the last 17 games opening a double-header.
The Tampa Bay Rays are fourth in the AL East with a 40-36 record.
They have lost the last 4 games and scored only 3 runs in the two losses against the Blue Jays.
The Rays are 26th in the league scoring 4.00 runs per game and are ranked 5th in the league allowing 3.93 runs per game.

- Tayler Saucedo, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Yimi Garcia, Trevor Richards, Julian Merryweather, Andrew Vasquez, Danny Jansen and Nate Pearson will not play for Toronto
- Manuel Margot, Drew Rasmussen, Andrew Kittredge, Mike Zunino, J.P. Feyereisen, JT Chargois, Brandon Lowe, Luis Patino, Brendan McKay, Pete Fairbanks, Tyler Glasnow, Nick Anderson and Yonny Chirinos will not play for Tampa Bay
- Both teams have split the last 10 head-to-head games
The Tampa Bay Rays started the season well being the only team that was at least close to the New York Yankees in the AL East. Things have drastically changed lately as the Rays have fallen to fourth place in the division. They have a couple off losing series at home and things don't look any better as they started the series in Toronto with two losses. Today, the Rays will have Shane McClanahan at the mound who is 8-3 for the season with 1.77 ERA. He is one of the top two pitchers on the team and will be able to stop the bleeding for the Rays. The Blue Jays are still the better team who may be a real treat for the Yankees by the end of the season. Therefore, I am suggesting to cover the Rays with a +1.5 run for nice 1.51 odds
