MLB Picks: Aug 15

By Mitchell Blair

So, if you are a fan of the Toronto Blue Jays these days, how ya doin? I think it's safe to say the next six weeks are going to put you through the emotional wringer. Who’s kidding who, it has been like that all year hasn’t it? The 2022 Blue Jays aren’t the biggest disappointment amongst teams in the majors this year, but they certainly aren’t making it easy on themselves and they got taught a lesson by Cleveland this weekend.

It doesn’t get any easier as Toronto faces the pesky Baltimore Orioles at Rogers Centre and with Yusei Kikuchi starting, how can you have any confidence in them? The free agent signing of Kikuchi has been a disaster. I don’t know how you can back Toronto when Kikuchi is on the mound. You have to hope the bats can come through. Toronto won’t face what they did this weekend against Cleveland, but Kyle Bradish should be able to give them five solid innings and let the bullpen take it from there. Toronto is favoured which would be fine if Gausman or Manoah were starting. They are not. Go with the road dog in this one  

PICK: Baltimore ML (+136) on Coolbet

The Phillies are big favourites to beat the Reds. Philadelphia has won 13 of its last 16 albeit they come into this game on a two-game losing streak after getting beat by the Mets. Philly is averaging just over 4.5 runs per game over the past couple of weeks and their bats should be able to rebound against a subpar Cincinnati staff.

PICK: Philadelphia -1.5 (-108) on Sports Interaction


The Mariners continue their chase for a wild-card spot, but they are in tough as they face Shohei Ohtani. That’s a massive boost for an Angels team who are just playing it out for the rest of 2022 Getting runs off Ohtani isn’t easy, but it won’t be easy for the Angels to get runs off of Luis Castillo who has been fantastic since being acquired at the deadline for Seattle.  This is one that will likely be decided late. I will go with the Mariners. 

PICK: Seattle ML (-101) on Coolbet
