If there’s one game where bettors can confidently pick their money, it’s Thursday’s meeting between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Kansas City Royals.
Sure, the Blue Jays have largely underperformed this season – leading to the sacking of coach Charlie Montoyo at a convenient time on Wednesday – but they are still a contender. The Royals, meanwhile, are the senior team that had to put 10 players on the restricted list for the Toronto series because they weren’t vaccinated.
It can be said that the Jays are the favorite heavyweights. In fact, they are the most popular team in the pro leagues this season with -400. So, of course, they walked away and lost 3-1.
The Blue Jays are the highest earning team this MLB season with -400…
Royal (+310) just won the game

.@Blue jay -400 against Royal.
Toronto is the favorite team this season.
Since 2005, favorites of -400 and above have increased 16-4.
But $100 bettors will drop – $31 bet per game per @Bet_Labs.

If you’re one of the very few bettors who actually took a Royal in Thursday’s game – and I mean one of the very few who bet – congratulations. But even after their inevitable win, don’t expect even more bets in the series to come on KC.
The Blue Jays are once again favored by 2.5 runs for Friday’s game and their currency odds are -360 at Tipico Sportsbook, with +270 on KC.
