Welcome to the Betano: Bets of the Series! We’re looking at the start of each series for the Toronto Blue Jays, who they are up against, and what we could expect from the next number of games. 
What a beautiful series that was against the Boston Red Sox. We cashed the Blue Jays winning the series, but got the exact series score wrong. Who would’ve thought the Jays could pull out a sweep?
Now, they head to Cleveland to face a Guardians team that is just downright bad. Let’s take some swings this week.

The Analysis

Toronto to the moon.
Gimme the Jays to win the series at +175. Cleveland, despite sitting second in the AL Central, are nothing short of a tirefire as a team. Up and down throughout the season, their lineup is weak and their pitchers are young. Toronto is rolling right now playing some of their best ball of the season, so I love them to come out on top.
We’re going to sprinkle a little bit on the correct series score to be Toronto 4-0 at +1100. That’s right. We’re going for a sweep. The Guardians will be missing Jose Ramirez, their best batter, for a good chunk of this series after his fight with Tim Anderson, and that might be enough to push the Jays to sweep victory.
