Who would’ve thought the Orioles would be making a playoff run? I surely didn’t predict it…

The Baltimore Orioles are 7-3 in their L10 games and now sit 4 games above 0.500 with a 56-52 record. The O’s are just 1.5 games back from the Seattle Mariners in the AL Wild Card race.

The Toronto Blue Jays lead the AL Wild Card standings entering Monday’s matchup against the Orioles. The Blue Jays are 60-48 on the season and 6-4 in their last ten games. Toronto is four games ahead of the Baltimore Orioles in the standings, and this is a critical game for both teams on August 8. The MLB playoff race is heating up.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Baltimore Orioles Betting Odds, Sharp Picks

7:05PM ET

The Toronto Blue Jays visit Baltimore on Monday, August 8. This game is scheduled to begin at 7:05pm ET at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland. The Orioles have a 31-21 record at home this season. The Blue Jays are 26-27 on the road.

The current moneyline odds for this Monday MLB matchup are below. As seen on the OddsJam MLB Odds Page, the Baltimore Orioles are best offered at +130 odds on a myriad of online bookmakers, including Caesars sportsbook. OddsJam has real-time MLB betting lines from over fifty sportsbooks.

The Blue Jays are best offered at -150 odds on Betfred and DraftKings. As a sports bettor, you should always be line shopping and getting the best possible odds. This is critical if you want to become a profitable sports bettor. Prices matter.

If you’re getting terrible prices (or “odds”), then you’re just going to be a cash register for the sportsbooks in the long run. Line shop, line shop, line shop. It’s so important!

MLB Betting Tips, Strategies

Jordan Lyles (8-8, 4.40 ERA) is set to start for the Baltimore Orioles on Monday. He’ll be facing off against Yusei Kikuchi (4-5, 4.86 ERA), the scheduled starter for the Blue Jays.

I think the Blue Jays will get the win on Monday, so I’d lean to bet on the Blue Jays moneyline if I had to choose. However, I don’t have an official moneyline or spread bet locked in for Blue Jays vs. Orioles. Rather, I have a bet on the total runs market, and it’s a Positive EV bet.

I’m on under 8.5 total runs at +140 odds on FanDuel sportsbook. As seen in the table above, FanDuel is the only sportsbook offering odds above +127. The value in this bet at +140 odds is ridiculous, and I had to play it!

I locked this bet in for $100 on FanDuel. I think that this is one of the top baseball betting picks on Monday, August 8.
