The Toronto Blue Jays are coming off a disappointing season, which is hard to believe considering they had last year’s AL Cy Young award winner (Robbie Ray) along with two of the top three AL MVP vote-getters in Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Marcus Semien. Despite a stacked offense and an improved starting rotation, Toronto fell one game short of a postseason berth, largely due to an erratic bullpen.

However, this is a team stacked with young talent across the roster. While the Blue Jays lost Ray and Semien to free agency, they were able to replace their top pitcher with former San Francisco Giants ace Kevin Gausman. They also filled a huge hole at third base by trading for Matt Chapman.

On top of getting a full season out of last year’s prized trade deadline acquisition Jose Berrios, Toronto also signed Yusei Kikuchi and former Marlins closer Yimi Garcia to bolster the rotation and bullpen, respectively. After winning 91 games last year, the Blue Jays have another promising season on the horizon in 2022.

It’s also telling that Toronto is favored to win the AL East at (+200) despite sharing the division with three other playoff-caliber teams. While it’s been nearly 30 years since their last World Series title, it seems that the Blue Jays might finally have the pieces in place to win it all this year.

Blue Jays Futures Bets 2022

Blue Jays To Win World Series (+1100) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

While losing Semien hurts, Chapman has 30-35-homer power and should be able to help fill the void. With Guerrero, Chapman, George Springer, and Bo Bichette anchoring the offense, the Blue Jays are going to score a ton of runs.

Toronto also has a terrific starting rotation with potential aces like Berrios and Gausman at the top mixed with young stud Alek Manoah and bounce-back candidate Hyun Jin Ryu. Kikuchi, who brings 95+ mph heat with strikeout stuff, is a welcome addition to the rotation as well.

With a terrifying lineup and an enhanced pitching staff, the Blue Jays appear primed for a World Series run. At (+1100) odds, they’re undervalued right now, making this a great choice for our MLB bet of the day.

Blue Jays To Win OVER 91.5 Games (-110) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 2 Units

The Blue Jays finished with a 91-71 record last season despite having a +183 run differential, which translates to a Pythagorean record of 99-63. With better luck, they would have been closer to 100 wins than 90.

While Toronto’s bullpen often let them down last year, their relief corps will benefit from the addition of Garcia as well as a full season of Aaron Cimber. The ‘pen also has former top prospect Nate Pearson and hard-throwing righty Julian Merryweather as potential difference-makers.

With a more reliable bullpen, the Blue Jays should soar past this win total in 2022 and have a legitimate shot at 100 wins.

Blue Jays Player Prop Bets 2022

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. To Win AL MVP (+500) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Guerrero Jr. is coming off a monster season where he finished second in the AL MVP race after slashing .311/.401/.601 with the most runs (123), home runs (48), and total bases (363) in the majors. This is a hitter who has the entire package; mammoth power, good discipline, and strong contact skills.

If the Blue Jays contend as expected, Guerrero Jr. will likely find himself in the MVP conversation again after being outdone by Shohei Ohtani‘s historic season last year. At (+500) odds, this looks like a bet that still has some value.

Jose Berrios To Win AL Cy Young (+2500) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 0.5 Units

Berrios has thrown 190+ innings with at least a 17.0% K-BB% in each of his last three full seasons. And while it feels like he’s been around forever, he’s still only entering his age-28 season and is squarely in his prime.

This will also be his first full season with Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker, who is one of the best in the game and just helped turn Ray into a Cy Young winner last year. All signs point to Berrios having a career year and being the most valuable pitcher in Toronto’s rotation, making him well worth a sprinkle at these odds.
