Bettors cashing in huge on Blue Jays' winning streak
The Toronto Blue Jays have been the most profitable bet in the bigs over the past nine games.
Any $100 bettor would be up $1,002.04 if they wagered on each game of Toronto’s current nine-game winning streak. The Blue Birds have outscored the opposition 53-20 during the run.
The Blue Jays were underdogs five times during the streak, including +216 pups against Yu Darvish and the Texas Rangers on June 13.
Toronto (36-36) is now at the .500 mark and five games out of the final AL wild-card spot heading into play Saturday afternoon.
The Blue Jays are +110 home dogs in the second game of a three-game set with the Baltimore Orioles Saturday. Toronto will send Chien-Ming Wang (1-0, 3.14) to the hill and the Orioles will counter with Miguel Gonzalez (5-2, 3.75).
The Blue Jays opened the 2013 campaign with 12-1 odds to win the World Series, but fell all the way to 100-1 at the LVH SuperBook on Monday. Online sportsbook Bet365 has boosted Toronto’s futures all the way to +1400 as of Thursday.
