The New York Yankees will be looking for another win as they host the Toronto Blue Jays this Tuesday. The Yankees are 51-28 after beating the Blue Jays in their last game. Meanwhile, the Blue Jays are 29-51 after losing to the Yankees in their last game. Now, both teams will be looking to improve upon their respective records in this game.

Toronto’s Offense Struggles In Loss

The Toronto Blue Jays are currently in fourth place in the AL East division as the team has only won 29 of its first 80 games this season. In addition, the team has also lost 26 of its first 42 road games this season. The main reason for the team’s struggles has been due to the lack of production from the team’s lineup. The Blue Jays currently rank 26th in the league in runs per game as the team is currently averaging 4.13 runs. The team’s offense failed to show up once again yesterday as the Blue Jays only scored three runs and wasted a quality performance by the pitching staff in the process.

The Toronto Blue Jays are led by shortstop Freddy Galvis who was solid last season. Last season, Galvis hit 13 home runs along with 67 RBIs. However, he struggled with his contact hitting as he only had a .248 batting average. In the team’s first 77 games of the season, he is batting .264 with 12 home runs and 38 RBIs. Galvis has been one of the only bright spots for Toronto all season long as his consistency at the plate and in the field has been noticeable.

Yankees Set Home Run Record

The New York Yankees are currently in first place in the AL East division as the team has won 50 of its first 88 games. In addition, the team has been amazing at home this season with a 29-14 home record. The main reason for the team’s success this season has been the team’s elite lineup as the Yankees have scored runs at will so far this season. The Yankees are currently tied for third in the league in runs per game as the team is averaging over 5.50 runs per game. Yesterday, New York’s offense set an MLB record as the team managed to hit a home run in the team’s 28th straight game. Now, the Yankees will look to extend that streak in this one.

The New York Yankees are led by catcher Gary Sanchez who has looked significantly better than he did last season. Last season, Sanchez only hit 18 home runs along with 53 RBIs as he only played in 89 games due to injury. So far this season, he already has 23 home runs and 52 RBIs in just 59 games played. With the return of some key superstars to the team’s lineup over the last week, Sanchez now has some added protection behind him which should lead to even better opportunities at the plate moving forward.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Simply put, New York is the better of these two teams by a wide margin and is in much better form than Toronto at this point in time. The Yankees have been fantastic at home this season while the Blue Jays have been awful on the road so far this season. I expect this game to be close for a little while but I think the Yankees offense will do just enough to get the victory.

Prediction: New York Yankees

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Since both of these teams possess below average pitching staffs, I have to lean to the over in this game. Thornton has also been awful this season so I would not be surprised to see him struggle again in this one. Furthermore, both teams still possess very solid lineups so I can see both teams scoring at least five runs. I can see this game being somewhere in the realm of 7-4 so I will recommend the over in this game.

Prediction: Over 10
