The Line: New York Yankees -213 / Toronto Blue Jays +175 -- Over/Under: 10
The New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays meet Thursday in MLB action at Rogers Centre.
The New York Yankees look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Yankees have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 11 games. The New York Yankees have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. DJ LeMahieu leads the Yankees with 69 hits and 38 RBI while Gleyber Torres and Luke Voit have combined for 121 hits and 70 RBI. J.A. Happ gets the ball, and he is 5-3 with a 4.83 ERA and 55 strikeouts this season. Happ is 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Blue Jays.
The Toronto Blue Jays could use a win after losing 10 of their last 13 games. The Blue Jays have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Toronto Blue Jays have won three of their last four games when scoring four or more runs. Freddy Galvis leads the Blue Jays with 53 hits and 25 RBI while Randal Grichuk and Justin Smoak have combined for 96 hits and 58 RBI. Edwin Jackson gets the ball, and he is 0-3 with a 13.22 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season. Jackson is 2-7 with a 5.21 ERA and 47 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 8-3 in their last 11 during game 3 of a series, 5-0 in Happ's last 5 road starts and 18-6 in Happ's last 24 starts. The Blue Jays are 4-10 in their last 14 home games, 6-20 in their last 26 Thursday games and 1-8 in their last 9 during game 3 of a series. The Yankees are 10-4 in the last 14 meetings and the over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 6-1-1 in Blue Jays last 8 home games. The under is 3-1-1 in Happ's last 5 starts overall.
Happ hasn't been the most consistent pitcher in the world this season, but the Yankees have won eight of his last nine starts and he's allowed three or less runs in four of his last five games, so maybe that's a sign of progress. Jackson has been good awful through 16.1 innings, as he's allowed 30 hits and 24 earned runs. Against current Yankees hitters in 93 at bats, Jackson is giving up a .376 batting average with three homers and 17 RBI. Jackson is simply batting practice at this point. Give me the Yanks and the RL to take the edge off that crazy high juice.
