5* MLB *BEST BEST*
Oakland vs. Toronto,

Score: 16 - 0
Money Line: -130 Toronto
5* MLB *BEST BEST* on Blue Jays -130
After a pair of strong outings against the White Sox and Indians, Romero was shelled by the Yankees his last time out. I fully expect the southpaw to bounce back here against a club that is only hitting .226 against lefty starters.
Romero has been stellar in his career against Oakland, going 4-0 with an ERA of 1.70 in six starts.
The fact that Romero will be working on six days' rest bodes well for us as the Blue Jays are 5-1 in his last six starts coming on six days' rest. More importantly, the Jays are 7-1 in his last 8 home starts versus a team with a winning record, 11-3 in his last 14 starts as a home favorite and 16-5 in his last 21 home starts overall.
It is also worth noting that the Blue Jays are 12-4 in their last 16 games as a favorite of -110 to -150. Bet the Jays.
