Yankees vs. Blue Jays Prediction

I’m on the under here. We saw the under cash with ease in game one and I’m going back to it here as Rodon’s been solid out of the gate and Kikuchi just stifled the Yankees on the way to a 3-0 Blue Jays win in this matchup a week and a half ago. I think this is going to be another first to 3 wins kind of game. Give me the under here.
