The Toronto Blue Jays closed-out the month of May by losing two of three games to Kansas City after reeling off nine straight wins, but they are starting to heat up again in the month of June with a three-game winning streak through Tuesday night’s action. They are now 35-24 on the year and holding a 4.5-game lead over Baltimore in the AL East. The Blue Jays have been solid no matter where they play with an 18-13 record at home complementing a 17-11 record on the road.

Detroit is hosting Toronto this week for three games. Its current losing streak reached three with a 5-3 loss in Game 1 of that series as a 142 favorite on BetAnySports’ closing MLB betting odds. The Tigers have gone 3-7 in their last 10 games, but they still hold a four-game lead over Chicago in the AL Central with an overall record of 31-23. The entire division remains bunched with last-place Minnesota just five games back.

The Oakland Athletics quickly emerged as the front runner in the AL West race with a strong start to the season and they continue to roll with the best record in the American League (36-22).
