Blue Jays have a chance to improve playoff seeding with win over Orioles

The Toronto Blue Jays enter the day as the No. 8 seed in the AL playoffs, but could improve as high as the No. 5 seed with a win over the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday.

Betting Impact:

The Blue Jays would need a win and a Yankees loss would vault them from the No. 8 seed to the No. 5 seed. Despite seemingly have a lot to play for, they are still currently just -124 moneyline favorites, according to BettingPros consensus odds. Part of the reason they are low could be that there may be some out-of-town scoreboard watching involved. If the Yankees were to get up big early on the Marlins, Toronto’s game is rendered meaningless. In addition, starting pitcher Tanner Roark (2-3, 7.01 ERA) has allowed four or more earned runs in four of his last five starts.
