The Toronto Blue Jays captivated the entire country of Canada during the 2015 season, making it all the way to the ALCS and ultimately finishing two wins away from the World Series. That season was the first time since 1993 that the Blue Jays had found themselves in the playoffs and the excitement surrounding the team was palpable. For a franchise that had such a long gap between postseason appearances, the key for Toronto in the future is maintaining that momentum and becoming a consistent winner.
Sportsbooks have had to adjust their Toronto Blue Jays odds because of the winning ways they developed in 2015 and oddsmakers are continually assessing what the Blue Jays bring to the table.

Bet On Toronto Blue Jays Games
After decades of .500 baseball, the Toronto Blue Jays management made a concerted effort to take a run at the World Series in 2015. Bringing in stars like Josh Donaldson, Troy Tulowitzki, Russell Martin and David Price helped push this team over the top and get back playing playoff baseball. It didn’t turn out to be enough in the end, but with only Price moving on, this Toronto team is built for success with a lineup that can bash with the best of them.
In fact, Toronto led the league in by a huge margin in runs scored in 2015. The Jays scored 891 runs through the regular season, and the next highest team was the Yankees at 764. When a team is scoring that many runs, it’s only a matter of time before long winning streaks follow. Those deadline moves put the Jays over the top in that regard and they were able to use that run of great play throughout the playoffs.
Yet, from a betting standpoint, a season like that does change the perception of Toronto dramatically. Many amateur bettors will expect Toronto to mash the ball every night and win plenty of high-scoring games. With the stars they’ve got in the lineup it’s tough not to think that way, but Toronto’s downfall in the playoffs last year was pitching (starters and bullpen).
Toronto knows they are now one of the “hunted” teams in MLB and with more inflated moneyline prices coming there way (especially from sportsbooks catering to Canadian sports bettors), looking to go against this team when they are lofty favourites may pay off more times than most believe.
