Colorado Rockies vs. Toronto Blue Jays: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

The Colorado Rockies and Toronto Blue Jays both come into Game 1 of this three-game interleague series on the back of an off day and each team is looking to improve after difficult starts to the year.

The Blue Jays are last in the AL East with a record of 6-7 and will be hoping that the arrival of the struggling Colorado Rockies in town can kick start their season. 

Colorado Rockies vs. Toronto Blue Jays betting picks and predictions

Toronto Blue Jays -1.5 (-115)

The Colorado Rockies have started the new season 3-10, the second-worst record in the National League, and they have been even worse on the road at 1-6.

Thanks to the Coors Field effect, Colorado tends to struggle on the road but that is even more pronounced when travelling to Canada.

They will not be able to take much confidence from their recent visits to the Rogers Centre as they are 0-9 in their last nine road games against Toronto.

Blue Jays' starter Kevin Gausman has had a tough start to the new season, but this Rockies' offence is not comparable to the New York Yankees’ lineup he faced last time out.

The two-time All Star is his team's ace and this looks like a good game for him to bounce back.

The starter is 2-1 against the Rockies and has given up just four runs in his last two starts against them. He should be key to the success that his ball club has in this game.

Rockies starter Ryan Feltner has been steady in the early part of the year, with a 3.27 ERA, but the Colorado bullpen has been disastrous. 

They blew Feltner’s last start in an 8-6 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays and they are a big reason that Colorado has the league-worst ERA of 6.57.

The Blue Jays are understandably -260 on the money line but given the Rockies issues in relief, -115 for them to cover the spread is of interest.

Over 8.0 runs (-110)

Despite the success of Colorado starter Ryan Feltner this season, the Over at -110 looks a solid pick in this game.

The Over has cashed in six of the Blue Jays’ last nine games against the Rockies and the visitors' bullpen may cause them further issues here.

Opponents are hitting .297 against Colorado this year and against a dangerous Blue Jays’ lineup, that spells trouble.

Rockies games against American League teams tend to be high-scoring too: the Over has cashed in seven of their last nine interleague outings.

Colorado can play their part with the bat as they are averaging 4.15 runs per game, and with their pitching potentially exposed, the Over at -110 looks a solid investment.

Justin Turner to hit a home run (+475)

The Toronto Blue Jays had a fairly quiet offseason but they did pick up the veteran bat of Justin Turner and he has impressed so far.

The former NLCS MVP sports a team-best batting average of .342 and could add to his tally of one home run on the year.

The 39-year-old had 23 dingers with the Boston Red Sox last season and could take advantage of the Rockies’ pitching troubles on the road.

Bo Bichette Over 1.5 total bases (-115)

After a slow start to the year by his own high standards, Bo Bichette looks to now be batting at his expected levels.

The shortstop continues to be consistent for the Toronto Blue Jays: in his last five outings he is hitting .316 with three doubles, a home run, three walks and three RBI.

The 26-year-old has a .298 career batting average and has twice led the American League in hits for the year.

Bichette can continue his good recent run and is taken at -115 to have Over 1.5 total bases.
