Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

The Blue Jays are off the betting board and have no odds to win the championship. They are projected to win 67 games and come in under their pre-season futures line of 74. In simulations, they have been eliminated from playoff contention. They were a +1000 'underdog' to make the playoffs in the preseason. Their preseason chances to win the division were 0.1% at 60/1, 1.6%. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #12 in the AL.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

Based on money line odds their expected record at this point of the season is 60.1-77.9. At 55-83 they are in line with these expectations. If you bet on them to win every game you would be down quite a bit (-1604 units). They are one of the best teams against the spread (70-68) for a +550 profit. Their under-over record is 68-63 with 7 pushes. Based on computer simulations they only have a 38% chance to beat the Braves in their next game. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record should be better. Their average run differential is -0.56 which ranks #10 in the AL, but their rank based on win percentage is #12. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #8 ranked team in run differential in road games, vs #11 in home games. They are trending down. Their average run differential in their past 11 games is -2.18 (#13 over this stretch).
