The Toronto Blue Jays lost a heartbreaker on Saturday night, needing just one more run to complete their 9th inning comeback. Unfortunately, they couldn't get it done and now they have to win on Sunday to get the series victory against the lowly Colorado Rockies.
The Jays are still fighting to get back into a playoff spot and can absolutely not afford to lose a series to one of the worst teams in the Majors. In today's must-win scenario, I think they come out on top.

Rockies vs. Blue Jays odds, run line, and total
Rockies vs. Blue Jays prediction and pick
The Jays will turn to their ace in a must-win situation and that will be enough to not only get them the win, but it should come with ease. I'm going to bet on the Jays -1.5 run line, meaning they'll need to win by at least two runs for this bet to cash.
The Jays offense has slowly started to get hot and they're now inside the top 10 in the Majors in OPS since the All-Star Break. Meanwhile, Kevin Gausman has had some strong showings of late and his experience with the San Francisco, where he had to pitch at Coors Field multiple times a year, should give him a leg up in today's start.
Chase Anderson gets the start today and his 6.63 ERA on the season should give the Jays plenty of opportunities to score runs.
I can't see how this game stays close. Jays win big.
