Who doesn’t love the weekend?
We’ll have a fun one watching the Toronto Blue Jays over the next three days as they pay visit to the Cincinnati Reds. The Jays enter the series as favourites, but can’t take their foes for granted.

The Analysis

We’re going to back the Jays outright in this series at -154 and I like the correct series score to be 2-1 in favour of the Jays at +125.
The Jays see minor league journeyman Brett Kennedy tonight in his seond start of the season, but might see more issues with Brandon Williamson and Hunter Greene — the latter of whom is expected come off the injured list.
For the Jays, the bats will surely need to help lead the way and this would be a great series for them to heat up with as starting Tuesday, the Jays open a three-game set against the Baltimore Orioles.
