Yankees VS Blue Jays Picks & Predictions
Moneyline/Runline Pick: Toronto Blue Jays (ML/-1.5)
Primed to cap off their homestand with a win, back the Blue Jays to pick up the massive victory over the Yankees to close out their current season series. With the wind in their sails after finally getting back into the win column last night, bet on the Blue Jays to win the game, covering the runline as favourites in the process.
In a dogfight of a tilt, the Blue Jays defensive efforts were the driving force for their recent victory. With starting pitcher churning in a spectacular performance from the mound, the Yankees had little offensive success.
While they were kept off the scoreboard until the walk-off home run hit by Danny Jansen in the bottom of the 10th, the Blue Jays offence was clicking throughout the contest. Piling up 10 hits on the night, the Jays have found plenty of success at-bat and will look to transition this into todays game.
Looking to produce a sequel to last night’s incredible output, look for the Blue Jays to settle the score with the Yankees, pulling out the much-needed victory, pulling ahead in their 2023 head-to-head record. Bet on the Blue Jays to cover the runline this evening and win big alongside the Jays tonight.
Over/Under: Under 9 Runs
While the first two matchups of this season series produced high-scoring affairs, look for the scoreboard to stay stagnant as the Under hits in tonight’s Yankees VS Blue Jays showdown. With the final score of each head-to-head battle gradually shrinking, look for tonight’s tilt to be low-scoring as these two teams have become very familiar with their respective opponents.
Both teams are set to be heavily reliant on the long ball this evening as they look to take the skilled outfielders on display out of the equation, instead focusing on guaranteed points through their home run hitters.
In three games played the score has only ever reached Over 9 runs once, this coming in their first meeting of their current series. Bank on the score remaining low to score you some dough on tonight’s Yankees VS Blue Jays duel.
Best Yankees VS Blue Jays Batter Prop Bets
DJ LeMahieu Over 0.5 Hits
After failing to record a hit in last nights loss to the Blue Jays, look for Yankees third baseman, DJ LeMahieu to make an impact on tonight’s game as he registers Over 0.5 hits. Having found success against the Blue Jays in head-to-head competition this season, LeMahieu is a great look for all Yankees VS Blue Jays player prop bettors.
Having racked up five hits in five appearances against the Blue Jays this season, back LeMahieu to continue his strong play against his opponents, registering a hit in tonight’s contest, and cashing you a winning player prop bet wager.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Over 0.5 RBI
One of the most dynamic batting talents in the MLB, look for Blue Jays All-Star, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to leave his mark on tonight’s contest as he provides a spark to his team by recording Over 0.5 RBIs.
With home run power and deadly accuracy when hitting the ball, Guerrero Jr. has been a constant producer for the Blue Jays this season. Having made up just over a quarter of his teams runs batted in this season against the Yankees, don’t expect to see Guerrero Jr. take his foot off the gas in tonight’s massive matchup.
Bet on Vladdy G to make a big play, bringing a man home and producing a scoring play for his team, take the Over on Guerrero Jr.’s RBI total.
Yankees VS Blue Jays Starting Pitcher Props
Nestor Cortes Over 4.5 Strikeouts
Coming off of a career year in 2022, look for Yankees starting pitcher, Nestor Cortes to continue establishing himself as a force in the MLB, striking out Over 4.5 Blue Jays batters in tonight’s tilt.
Cortes has been electric on the mound this season, honing in on his ability to get batters off the plate as quickly as possible. Utilizing a nasty cutter to send batters packing, look for Cortes to give the Blue Jays trouble this evening a he keeps them swinging at air in order to provide his team with a chance to win.
Bet the over on Cortes’ strikeout total as he piles up Over 4.5 Ks on the evening.
Jose Berrios Over 5.5 Hits Allowed
Aiming to keep his home record unblemished, Blue Jays starting pitcher Jose Berrios, may have trouble keeping the active bats of the Yankees from making contact with his pitches. Experiencing a hot-and-cold season, Berrios has allowed Over 5.5 hits in two of his last three appearances on the mound.
While Berrios possesses a stellar skillset, he has continually struggled to find consistency with his play. With the Yankees averaging 6.6 hits per game this series, look for Berrios to have a tough time keeping the Yankees batters at bat, allowing Over 5.5 hits in tonight’s game.
