New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays Spread, Line, Odds, Predictions, Picks and Betting Preview



New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays Spread, Line, Odds, Predictions, Picks and Betting Preview

Yankees @ Blue Jays – First Pitch: 7:07 p.m.

Expected Forecast: Clear Sky, 49°

In today’s MLB showdown, we have the New York Yankees going head-to-head with the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre. The Yankees’ are sending Gerrit Cole to the mound, while the Blue Jays counter with Chris Bassitt on the mound. The Yankees are slight favorites, with a -113 price and a total of 8.

New York’s ace, Cole, presents an interesting opportunity for bettors. When Cole’s price is under -160, he’s an attractive bet, consistently outperforming market expectations. Even though Bassitt has been phenomenal lately, the Yankees’ lineup has awakened recently. They entered this series winning seven of their last ten games, showing their capacity to put up significant runs.

Cole is expected to pitch at least seven innings, which could be a game-changer. Despite some concerning numbers in his last two starts, Cole’s history suggests he is capable of turning it around quickly. In fact, the former Astro may be the perfect candidate to step up and challenge Toronto’s big bats.

However, there’s a twist in the tale. Bassitt’s 30-day splits show a weighted on-base percentage of .297 against lefties and .129 against righties, which might pose a challenge for the Yankees’ lineup. Additionally, Cole has been facing a bit of a struggle against right-handed batters, with a weighted on-base percentage of .399 over the past 30 days, which is unusual for a pitcher of his caliber. It could be a problem against a right bat-heavy Jays lineup.

Nevertheless, Cole’s lower price point provides an attractive betting opportunity. Despite recent performance issues, Cole can turn a game around in an instant. It’s not unusual for him to bounce back mid-game, shutting down opposing batters and stacking up strikeouts. Trusting Cole to maintain his performance level is a reasonable bet, especially when compared to Bassitt.

This Yankees vs. Blue Jays game promises to be an exciting match, with both teams boasting strong lineups and formidable pitchers. Given the potential for high-scoring innings and the likelihood of Cole regaining his dominant form, this game offers intriguing betting opportunities. Keep an eye on this match, as it could have significant implications on the standings and offer substantial returns for savvy bettors.
