Toronto Blue Jays +195 / New York Yankees -235 O/U: 9.5
The New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays will meet up on the MLB diamond Saturday to continue their series.
In the Friday opener of this set, we had a 12-inning battle. Toronto jumped out to a 3-0 lead but the Yankees posted five runs in the fifth inning. The Jays chipped away at the lead and finally bagged a win with a 12th-inning homer from Bo Bichette.
For Saturday’s game, the Yankees will send out James Paxton to start. In his 138.2 innings and 13-6 mark this year, Paxton has a 3.96 ERA with 175 Ks and 53 BBs.
Over on the Jays’ side, they’re going with Jacob Waguespack in the start Saturday. Over 63.1 innings and a 4-4 mark this year, Waguespack has a 4.55 ERA with 48 Ks and 24 BBs.
The Yankees are 38-16 in the last 54 Saturday games and 40-19 in their last 59 in game two of a series. New York is 4-0 in Paxton’s last four road starts and 8-0 in his last eight starts.
Meanwhile, the Jays are 0-4 in Waguespack’s last four starts versus a team with a winning record and 0-4 in his last four starts. The under is 3-0-1 in Toronto’s last four in game two of a series and 4-1-1 in the last six Saturday games.
Paxton has been one of the Yankees’ more reliable starters lately. He’s got three quality outings in his last four tries, and has given up just four earned over his last quartet of outings.
As for Waguespack, he gave up six earned in 4.1 innings his last time out and has lost three straight. I have to stick with the Yankees here.
