Blue Jays vs Astros MLB Pick

There have been just 11 total runs scored in the first three of the four-game set, with the Blue Jays taking the upper hand after a 3-1 win Wednesday. Today you will have two outstanding pitchers going at it with; Toronto sending out ace J.A. Happ (14-3, 3.16 ERA) to face Mike Fiers (7-4, 4.42 ERA) of Houston. Happ is  5-2 with a 3.31 ERA in 10 road starts overall this season. I have three bets on this game. My primary bet will be the under with 50% on a straight under wager. I will be placing 40% on the Blue Jays money line. My last bet will be a parlay with the Blue Jays money line and the under for the last 10%.

Toronto vs Houston Prediction:
Blue Jays 4 – Houston 2
