If the Toronto Blue Jays (60-70, minus-8.06 betting units) got to face the Baltimore Orioles (37-94, minus-49.12 units) every week, maybe they'd be going to the playoffs. The Jays will face Baltimore this Wednesday for the sixth time in nine games.

Sportsnet has the coverage from Camden Yards beginning at 7:05 PM ET. Rookie left-hander Ryan Borucki (4.12 ERA) is projected to start for Toronto. Borucki is up 2.96 units on a team record of 6-5, including five wins in his last six games, but the Illinois native has been strangely inconsistent - the Over is 5-1 when the Jays win, while the Under is 4-1 when they lose. He began the year as Toronto's No. 8-ranked prospect, pairing a pedestrian fastball with an occasionally baffling change-up.

Alex Cobb (5.00 ERA) is next in line for the Orioles. The veteran northpaw is in his first year with Baltimore after spending over a decade in the Tampa Bay Rays organization. It's been a rough welcome; the O's are 5-19 behind Cobb for a loss of 11.61 units, providing just 3.58 runs per game in support. Only Houston's Justin Verlander and Cincinnati's Homer Bailey have fared worse against the baseball odds this year.
