BIG AL's 27-11 MLB ELITE INFO WINNER!
New York Yankees (21-20) at Toronto Blue Jays (23-18)

At 6:35 pm, our selection is on the New York Yankees over the Toronto Blue Jays. J.A. Happ spent the better part of six seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays during two different stints there (2012 - 2014 and 2016-2018). Arguably, the veteran southpaw had his best years with the Jays (he won 20 games with them in 2016 at the age of 33) so it must be at least a little bitter-sweet when he has to face them now. After two straight starts against the Mets, Happ will go opposite his old team for the sixth time since coming to New York, and the first time this season. Happ's numbers this season may not jump off the page at you (1-1 with a 4.68 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in five starts covering 25 innings) but he has a way of being effective even when he doesn't have his best stuff. Call him the quintessential "crafty lefty." The Yankees are 20-9 (+10 games on the moneyline) in Happ's last 29 road starts and 27-11 (+11 games on the moneyline) in his last 38 nighttime starts). Take New York. As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
