MLB Title Betting: Can The Blue Jays Contend?

Toronto Blue Jays Looking To Recapture Past Success

Since joining the Majors, at the start of the 1977 MLB season, the Jays have a 2,755 – 2,790 overall record. When one considers that Toronto has played in the American League East, along with the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox every season, their overall record deserves respect. World Series Championships in 1992 and 1993, along with five postseason appearances, and a 41-21 playoff record, further proves the point.

Getting back  to World Series glory doesn’t come easy. Playoff magic hasn’t returned to Toronto since their ’93 Championship run as the Blue Jays have been shut out of the postseason for the past 18 seasons. Surprisingly though, the Jays have been posted as the seventh favorite at top online sportsbook Bodog with 22/1 future betting odds to win the 2012 AL Pennant.

2012 MLB AL Pennant Race: Jays Are Betting Longshots At Bodog

With two-time defending MLB home run champion José Bautista, along with solid hitting shortstop Yunel Escobar, there is reason for optimism under the Rodgers Center Sky Dome in Toronto. Add in slugger Edwin Encarnacion moving to the DH role, to make way for rising star Brett Lawrie at third base, and the Jays may be worth small futures wager at Bodog to win the American League Pennant.

Daily baseball handicapping lines, along with futures betting, as well as player and team prop wagering options, are available 24/7 at the top ranked online sportsbooks recommended here at Online Betting Canada.

Maple Leafs at Canadiens NHL Online Betting Lines 
CBC is the place to be tonight. Lord, I can't believe I just said that. But, it's oddly appropriate for once. They have two absolutely fantastic games in a Hockey Night in Canada. First, the Toronto Maple Leafs throwdown against the Montréal Canadiens. And in the nightcap, the Ottawa Senators go up against the Edmonton Oilers. But right now, we’re only concerned with the Habs.

Blackhawks at Canadiens NHL Online Betting Lines 
Seriously though. The schedule-makers hate the Montréal Canadiens. This has been a rough way to start the season. But if you were overly optimistic I guess you could say this is a chance for them to test their championship medal. The expectations are 100% focussed on the Stanley Cup this year. So a bit of adversity to start the year, and some challenging scheduling is a good thing, right? Right, right?

Canadiens at Rangers NHL Online Betting Lines 
So this should be an interesting game. Both the Canadiens and the Rangers are coming off of losses they don’t want to talk about. So, maybe don’t bring them up around either team. Just sayin. I sort of love games where both teams are coming in angry. It leads to good old-fashioned punch-in-the-face hockey. So let’s get into this. Here are the lines and predictions for tonight’s game.
