New York Mets Odds
The Mets (21-25) look to re-ignite their offense when they play the rubber match of their
three-game series against the Blue Jays (25-20). New York homered in 15 of 17 contests and
erupted for 75 runs in a nine-game stretch before dropping a 3-2 decision to Toronto on
Amed Rosario’s promising night came to an abrupt end on Saturday as he inexplicably was
picked off at first base while serving as the potential tying run. The 24-year-old collected three
hits to improve to 8-for-15 in his last six contests after a disastrous 14-for-71 performance at the
plate (.197) with 20 strikeouts in August.
Left-hander David Peterson (4-1, 4.26 ERA) looks to get back on track Sunday after registering
a 7.20 ERA in his last three outings. The 25-year-old allowed five runs and issued four walks in
a career-low two innings of a no-decision against Philadelphia on Monday.
Toronto Blue Jays Odds
Bo Bichette scored on Saturday in his return from a 27-game absence with a right knee sprain.
The 22-year-old heads into the series finale having hit safely in 10 straight games, during which
he is 17-for-40 with five HRs, 11 RBIs and 10 runs scored.
Bichette scored on an RBI infield single from Randal Grichuk, who has hit safely in three straight
games and seven of his last eight. Grichuk has scored a run in five of his last eight contests for
the Blue Jays, who have won 11 of their last 17 games.
Left-hander Hyun Jin Ryu (3-1, 3.19 ERA) will take the mound aiming to rebound from a
disastrous start, during which he has surrendered three homers and five runs over five innings
in a no-decision against the Yankees. Ryu, however, sports a 4-1 record with a 1.20 ERA and
0.89 WHIP in eight career starts versus the Mets.
Mets at Blue Jays Betting Pick for September 13, 2020
The Blue Jays haven’t been shy about playing it close to the vest, winning 13 of 22 one-run
games this season. By comparison, they needed until Sept. 10 of last year’s 162-game season
to reach 13 one-run victories.
Toronto will claim its third straight series win on Sunday, perhaps with another assist from a
New York club that has found creative ways to lose this season.

scrap for a few runs to win the game on Sunday, but well under nine total runs.
