The Toronto Blue Jays will have some fresh faces when they visit the Houston Astros this Wednesday (8:10 PM ET, SNET) in the third game of a four-game series. Toronto made a handful of deals ahead of the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline, adding pitchers Scott Feldman and Francisco Liriano while trading away Drew Hutchison and Jesse Chavez.

It’ll be Marco Estrada (3.98 FIP) getting the nod for Toronto on Wednesday. Estrada has pitched quite well, delivering 11 quality starts in his last 12 games, but the Jays (59-47, –1.91 betting units) have lost three of Estrada’s last five starts to fall 0.93 units in the red on a record of 10-8. The under is 12-6 this year with Estrada on the mound.
Collin McHugh (3.75 FIP) has pitched even better than Estrada, and the Astros (56-49, –5.54 units) have given him plenty of support at 5.10 runs per game, enough to generate 3.90 units of profit at 13-8 in his 21 starts. But this has still been a frustrating year for McHugh. Opposing batters have a combined .362 BABIP off McHugh this season, pushing his ERA all the way up to 4.75.
