The Toronto Blue Jays (60-49) and Baltimore Orioles (57-52) continue a 3-game AL East series Tuesday. First pitch from Oriole Park at Camden Yards is set for 7:05 p.m. ET. Let’s analyze Tipico Sportsbook‘s lines around the Blue Jays vs. Orioles odds with MLB picks and predictions.
Season series: Baltimore leads 3-2
Toronto lost Monday’s series opener 7-4 and has thus far gone 3-4 on a winding road trip that has included stops at the Tampa Bay Rays and Minnesota Twins. Clutch hitting has undone the Blue Jays of late. The Jays have gone just 6-for-32 (.188) with runners in scoring position over their last 4 losses.
The Orioles have won 5 of their last 6 games and 10 of their last 14. Baltimore’s pitching has been sharp, posting a 3.17 ERA over that stretch.

Blue Jays at Orioles picks and predictions
Blue Jays 6, Orioles 3
Peg the Orioles as being overcooked and a bit cluster-lucky (grouping and avoiding groups of hits in an advantageous way) on both sides of the ball.
Toronto’s offense is capable of more, and Manoah has been sharp enough as he’s worked around walks in tough recent road starts at the Twins, Boston Red Sox and Seattle Mariners.
BACK THE BLUE JAYS (-175).

Run line/Against the spread
More aggressive bettors may want to split their action on the Jays, placing half a unit on the above play and another half on TORONTO -1.5 (-108).
The risk is in the frequency (higher than average) with which these 2 clubs tangle in 1-run affairs. The average MLB club has played in 30 1-run games: Toronto has played in 38; Baltimore has played in 34.
PASS: Value signals here swing both ways.
