Best Toronto Blue Jays Betting Predictions
The Blue Jays enter the 2020 season off the back of a disappointing 2019 campaign. With a 67-95 record, the team was only able to secure the 4th spot in the AL East Division. It was the third consecutive year the team failed to reach the playoffs.
With a tough division featuring the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, and Tampa Bay Rays, the Jays will need to make drastic changes this offseason. The few bright spots of the team last season were the play of young batters Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette. Expect them to improve greatly during the offseason and get forces in 2020.

When making MLB picks and predictions it’s important to take the team’s past performances and history into consideration. Also, be sure to take into account starting line ups and injury reports when making your picks. Diligent research can be the difference between winning and losing bets. Toronto Blue Jays betting, in particular, can be greatly affected by certain line ups and players missing out.
The Blue Jays are still in a rebuilding phase and aren’t expected to be competing for their division title. Our MLB prediction today foresees the team having an even season and possibly taking the third spot in the AL East.
History of Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays are currently the only Canadian-based team in Major League Baseball. They are the second MLB franchise to be based outside the US, after the Montreal Expos. The team plays in the AL East division along with the Yankees, Red Sox, Rays and Orioles. After a stint at the Exhibition Stadium and Skydome, the team now plays its home games at the Rogers Centre. The Blue Jays and the Atlanta Braves are the only two MLB teams under corporate ownership.
The Blue Jays have had multiple periods of success, most notably in 1992 and 1993, winning the World Series back-to-back. Recent years haven’t been as kind to the team, with three years of missing out on the playoffs on the trot. The last time the Jays made the playoffs was 2016, through the Wild Card.
The Blue Jays were formed back in 1977 as an expansion franchise. Originally owned by the Labatt Brewing Company, the team has since been bought over by Rogers Communications. The team took on blue for its uniforms in solidarity with other professional Canadian teams, the Maple Leafs(NHL) and Argonauts(CFL). The name ‘Blue Jays’ comes from the color blue and the bird of the same name.
The best result for the Blue Jays was definitely the back to back World Series wins in 1992 and 1993. The unprecedented victory was the first time a franchise outside the United States had won the World Series. The Jays had been a powerhouse in the AL East for almost a decade before the World Series wins. They won five division championships in nine years through the years 1985-1993.
Since its hay day, the team has yet to find the same type of form. A notable season, however, was the 2015 season, where the team won the AL East over the Yankees and Red Sox. Unfortunately, the Jays could only make it as far as the AL Championship Series, losing to the Kansas City Royals in 6 games.
A number of noteworthy players have come from the Blue Jays over the past 40-odd years. A couple of the most popular players to play for the franchise include:
- Roberto Alomar- led the team to three consecutive American League Championship Series (ALCS) appearances. Was named the 1992 ALCS Most Valuable Player (MVP), and won back-to-back World Series championships in 1992 and 1993.
- Carlos Delgado- holder of all-time Major League Baseball home run record among Puerto Rican players, with 473. One of only six players in Major League history to hit 30 home runs in ten consecutive seasons. Holder of multiple Blue Jays batting records including RBIs, Walks, and Slugging Percentage.
