Best Bet of the Day 

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays vs Minnesota Twins Under 7.5 (-110)

If there’s one thing you should know about postseason baseball, it’s that scores tend to be much lower. That is because of the mix of great starting pitching with quick hooks and only the best relievers. Great pitching beats great hitting every time, and that is usually what we see in the playoffs. Between a pair of aces and two rested and solid bullpens, the under is the way to go in Game 1. Check out our full Blue Jays vs Twins predictions.
