Get ready for the weekend Ask the Bookie faithful, this is Frank Tank making a cameo appearance to get you winning more bets. There is a ton of buzz coming into this one tonight with the long-awaited arrival of top prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. The Jays have shit-the-bed in these situations lately, and I expect the same to happen tonight.

Current Line: TOR -129 Total: 9
TV Coverage: NBCS California, Sportsnet One
Probable Pitchers: Mike Fiers (2-2, 8.28 ERA) vs. Marcus Stroman (1-3, 1.76 ERA)
Watch the condensed game when the Jays beat up on Fiers:
Mike Fiers is coming into this one having lost his last start against the Blue Jays in convincing manner, getting yanked after 3.1 innings when the Jays put up 6 runs on him in Oakland. However, Fiers is a veteran, and seemingly when Toronto goes home to do something special, they are known to fail miserably.
This is the biggest reason why Frank Tank likes Oakland tonight.
It will be interesting to see how Fiers pitches to the phenom, but find yourself a prop bet on young Vladdy hitting a bomb. I predict he goes yard in his MLB debut.
Marcus Stroman takes the mound for the Jays, and while he’s been serviceable, he tends to shit-the-bed as well. I expect the Jays to flop at home tonight in a big spot. I think it’s a mental block, getting in front of the home crowd and try to do too much.
This is my gut-shot call tonight, going off the Blue Jays tendencies. The young Jays are too young and inexperienced and they lose a close one tonight.
