Blue Jays Preview
The Toronto Blue Jays are 24-17 this season and they have won three of their last four games. Prior to losing the first game in this series, Toronto won all three games in their series with the Braves. The Toronto pitching staff has a 4.01 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a .239 opponent batting average. The Blue Jays offense has scored 196 runs with a .258 batting average and a .331 on base percentage this season. Bo Bichette is batting .324 with eight home runs and 27 RBI’s for the Blue Jays. The projected starting pitcher for Toronto is Kevin Gausman, who is 2-3 with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP over 48.0 innings pitched this year.
New York is 6-2 in their last 8 games and 41-17 in their last 58 Tuesday games. The over is 9-0 in New York’s last 9 games. Toronto is 8-2 in their last 10 home games and 0-5 in their last 5 games against the AL East. The under is 8-2 in Toronto’s last 10 game two’s of a series. New York is 12-4 in these two teams last 16 head to head meetings in Toronto.
The Yankees were able to get an impressive win in Game 1 of this series after Toronto was able to sweep the Braves over the weekend. Both teams are playing very well recently and they have very similar hitting and pitching metrics. New York is starting Domingo German, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three straight starts. Toronto is starting Kevin Gausman, who has allowed 0 earned runs in three of his last four starts, but did allow eight runs to Boston two starts ago. This is a very solid pitching matchup and I like the under here.
