The Blue jays are currently on an 8 game winning streak, the longest active in baseball, and are 9-1 since acquiring Troy Tulowitzki at the trade deadline. Now, they sit only 1.5 games back from the Yankees for the Al East division lead. Oddsmakers at Bet365 project them as (-120) favourites, which is down from (+700) when the trade was first announced.

To put things in perspective, two weeks ago the Blue Jays were only (+700) to win the Al East division, and now as of August 10, 2015 they are (+700) to win the World Series! The Jays are (+350) to win the American League pennant, which is just behind their new rival KC Royals at (+260).

In the The Jays are undefeated in the 9 games that Tulowitzki started, the lone loss came when he was given the day off to rest and Kawasaki got the start at shortstop. A $100 bettor who bet on the Blue Jays during this current streak would be up $820!
