Baseball PredictionsWith all of the mixed emotions that will come with another season plagued by inconsistencies, the Toronto Blue Jays can take solace in the fact that there is hope for the future with such a talented young roster. The Blue Jays will get to take an up-close look at what can happen with an organization when they build internally and complete the puzzle with a few solid free agents, as they battle the defending AL champion Texas Rangers at home this MLB betting weekend.

The Blue Jays liked what they saw from Brett Cecil at Texas last week, and hope that they can get a similar effort this weekend as they open up the three-game set on Friday in front of their home fans at the Rogers Centre. The 25-year old Cecil went the distance and allowed just four hits while striking out seven to earn the complete-game shutout against one of the best offenses in baseball. Cecil will get the call against Alex Ogando for the Rangers, and although he wasn’t bad against Toronto last week there is definitely room for a stronger performance. The last time he lost a game Ogando lost three in a row, and Texas has been very streaky at times this MLB season.

Brandon Morrow hasn’t been nearly as good as Cecil was in his last start since he got back from injury, and although he has shown flashes of what has made Toronto management believe that he is an integral part of the future, he needs to be much more consistent. Morrow didn’t start against Texas a week ago, but he did give up six earned runs on nine hits in just 3.1 innings of work against the Baltimore Orioles in his last start. The Rangers’ offense has looked good all year behind the 9-4 Derek Holland, and they should again as they look to even the sports betting bonus weekend series.

The series finale will feature the aces for both sports betting teams, as Ricky Romero gets the call for the home side against CJ Wilson for Texas. Romero has been just okay this season as he has dealt with a ton of inconsistency, and the Blue Jays are looking for more from the man that they have pegged to lead them into the future from the rotation. Meanwhile, the Rangers have gotten exactly what they had expected out of Wilson who is 10-4, although he did get roughed up a little bit in his last start, allowing six earned runs in just 4.0 innings of work against the Minnesota Twins. Wilson has been the more consistent of the two all year, and he should get enough support from a powerful Texas offense to bounce back in the win column and earn the Rangers the series-clinching win.
