Vegas Play of the Day: Angels at Blue Jays

Toronto Blue Jays’ Jose Reyes bats during a spring training baseball game against the Houston Astros in Kissimmee, Fla., Sunday, March 9, 2014

Here’s the latest installment of the Play of the Day, which uses odds from the South Point. Our three sports writers started with a $10,000 bankroll — fictional, of course.

Toronto Blue Jays (-110) vs. Los Angeles Angels, $330 to win $300: Toronto starter Mark Buehrle has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season, bringing the major league’s best record (6-1) and earned run average (1.91) into today’s start. It comes at a perfect time for the Blue Jays, who are looking to avoid the four-game sweep against the Angels.

Two of Toronto’s three defeats in the series have been close. The Blue Jays are due for a breakthrough, especially against an Angels’ squad piecing its outfield lineup together. It got so bad for Los Angeles that it promoted former UNLV player Efren Navarro, a career minor leaguer, for the series.

Toronto has scored just nine runs in the series. I can’t imagine its high-scoring offense being grounded much longer.

Standings: Bern (23-16-1, $11,500), Keefer (19-25, $7,528), Brewer (17-22-3, $7,070)
