Prediction

Blue Jays 6, Indians 3

Money line (ML)

Cleveland took Monday's opener but has otherwise been in a tailspin since late June. The Indians are 11-20 over their last 31 games.

Toronto has been quite good in the second half, posting a robust .852 OPS going into Monday's contest.

Toronto is a lean at around -200. PASS on the current tag.

Run line/Against the spread (ATS)

Toronto's offense, Ryu's history vs. Cleveland and the Jays' average margin of victory over their last six wins being 4.57 runs makes for value to leverage in a TORONTO -1.5 (-107).

Over/Under (O/U)

Too many signals at cross purposes. PASS.
