Marco Estrada (4.84 ERA) and the 53-64 Toronto Blue Jays visit rookie northpaw Burch Smith (6.97 ERA) and the 35-82 Kansas City Royals this Wednesday, starting at 8:15 PM ET on Sportsnet. The Royals are 1-5 behind Smith for a loss of 4.00 betting units.
Estrada (4.84 ERA) isn’t having his best season, either, but Toronto’s Opening Day starter has the team 0.98 units in the black on a record of 5-9. However, Estrada has been inconsistent since returning from a three-week stay on the disabled list with a strained glute, followed by a blister that formed on Estrada’s right middle finger during his rehab stint. Estrada has allowed 10 runs over 16.1 innings in three starts since coming off the DL. Did you know we launched a site with all new Bovada Bonus Codes.
Smith (6.97 ERA) is in his second tour of duty in the majors after a brief spell in 2013 with the San Diego Padres. The former Oklahoma Sooner missed 2015 and 2016 to Tommy John surgery. After earning a spot in the Kansas City bullpen, Smith has dropped 4.00 units on a team record of 1-5 since joining the Royals’ rotation in mid-July.
