Toronto Blue Jays 2024 World Series Odds

Toronto Blue Jays MLB Betting

For the third time in four years, the Toronto Blue Jays made the playoffs as a wild-card team. All three times, the Blue Jays were eliminated in two games. The recent success of Toronto has made them a relatively popular team with gamblers. But that popularity has driven down Toronto’s value. Despite winning 91 games in 2022 and 92 games in 2023, the Blue Jays finished in the red in both campaigns. Toronto is not a hot commodity on the futures market for 2024 but does get a moderate among of support based on its recent winning ways.

In 2023, the Toronto Blue Jays had a record of 99-63 and finished 3rd in the American League East Division. Offensively, Tampa Bay ranked 4th for runs scored, 3rd for batting average, 4th for OPS, 6th for home runs, and 4th for stolen bases. Defensively, Toronto ranked 6th for earned run average, 1st for WHIP, 18th for strikeouts, 21st for quality starts, 9th for fewest errors, and 8th for bullpen ERA. Toronto was -381 on the moneyline and -1497 on the run line.

Last season was an ugly one against the oddsmakers for the Toronto Blue Jays. But that will not deter gamblers from shopping them based on their reputation as a playoff team and top contender.

Key offseason acquisitions include RHP Yariel Rodriguez, 3B Isiah Kiner-Falefa, DH Justin Turner, and CF Kevin Kiermaier.

Key offseason departures include 3B Matt Chapman, DH Brandon Belt, UTIL Whit Merrifield, LHP Hyun Jin Ryu, and RHP Jordan Hicks.

Overall, the Jays’ winter suffered from expectations heightened by their pursuits of Shohei Ohtani or Juan Soto. In a vacuum, bringing back Kevin Kiermaier and bringing in Justin Turner are OK moves but not what fans were ultimately hoping for. Alek Manoah’s probably going to be better than his horrible 2023, so Toronto shouldn’t count on 128 starts from the other four members of their likely rotation. Yariel Rodriguez, who excelled in Japan following a shift to the bullpen, could be a candidate for more innings here.

Offensively, Toronto is hunting rebounds across its lineup, especially from Vladimir Guerrero Jr. But whatever positive regressions accrue there may be mitigated by the loss of Matt Chapman at third, with the light-hitting Isiah Kiner-Falefa slated for significant time on the infield. As with Tampa Bay, Toronto’s offseason feels underwhelming.

Toronto ranks 5th for MLB payroll. This ranking may surprise gamblers, but Toronto is one of the largest cities in the world with massive media coverage. The Blue Jays are finally spending like the big market team that they are.
