Before looking at the line I thought this was a coin flip & I was right as the line is currently -105 for either team. The Astros have the better starting pitcher. The Blue Jays have a better relieving & hitting team. Personally, I will be staying away from this game but for pick's sake, I'll take the Astros the win.
