Toronto is 3-6 in their last 9 games and 1-6 in their last 7 game two’s of a series. The over is 7-1 in Toronto’s last 8 road games. New York is 39-16 in their last 55 home games and 18-7 in their last 25 Friday games. The over is 13-3-1 in New York’s last 17 home games. The over is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

New York continues to struggle and has played poorly over the last few weeks. Despite the struggles, the Yankees still hold a nine game lead in the AL East. Both of these pitchers have been pretty solid this season, but both have had a rough start in their last few outings. I like the over in this game and the over between these two teams has been hitting at a consistent rate.
