The Blue Jays will break out the brooms tonight at Toronto's Rogers Centre when they go for an interleague sweep against Johnny Cueto and the Cincinnati Reds.
The Cincinnati Reds have found the going tough at the Rogers Centre versus the host Toronto Blue Jays, losing both of the first two games in this three-game set.
They face a Blue Jays squad that is 64-36 (+18.2) when playing at home with a line range of -150 or less the last three seasons. Toronto is 40-17 their last 57 games as a home favorite and 17-8 their last 25 home games facing a righthanded starter.
The Reds are 8-24 their last 32 interleague road games versus teams with a winning record and 6-18 their last 24 interleague road games facing a lefthanded starter. All bad signs for a Reds team that needs a win to halt a sweep in this series on Thursday night.
Our TPR (Team Performance Ratings) Index projects a Blue Jays win over the Reds by 1.3 runs and our Math Model also signals a sweep by the Jays on Thursday night at the Rogers Centre. Lay the short price with the host as the Jays take all three games in their interleague matchup with the Reds.
Projected Final Score: Toronto-6 Cincinnati-4
