Nothing should come as a complete surprise in regards to Major League Baseball and organizational performance from season-to-season. The biggest statistical variables this season come in the form of the Toronto Blue Jays offensive differential from 2015 to 2016. The Jays scored 891 runs a season ago, 127 more than the New York Yankees 764. The oddsmakers over-unders in the first half of this season has resulted in Toronto registering the top return on investment in the MLB Totals container.
The Jays lead all baseball teams in cashing UNDER the total, overall, with a 56-39-4 mark. The Pittsburgh head into Monday night’s Major League Baseball schedule besting the rest of the league in OVER the total wins with a 57-40-1 record.
It is worth noting that Toronto is in the Top-Five offensive category for “runs scored” this season with 486 trailing the Boston Red Sox (547), Colorado Rockies (506), St Louis Cardinals (504) and Chicago Cubs (494) while the King of the Overs so far in 2016, the Pirates, rank 13th in runs scored on the season with 451.
The Blue Jays host the National League San Diego Padres tonight and Toronto is 12-4 to the UNDER in their last 16 home affairs.
