Why bet on the Toronto Blue Jays?

Starter Kevin Gausman is throwing great in August. Gausman had a bad outing in his last on August 14 versus the Cleveland Guardians. But in the start before, the Jays pitcher held the Minnesota Twins to 0 earned runs off 6 hits in 6 innings. Then in the previous start, Gausman threw 8 innings and allowed 1 hit in a 3-1 Toronto victory over Tampa Bay. Gausman’s ERA in August is a sweet 2.41.

Why bet on the New York Yankees?

NYY starter Jameson Tallion has had great success versus the Toronto Blue Jays. Tallion has faced Blue Jay batters 143 times. He’s struck out 32 while allowing 34 hits and just 4 home runs. The Jays bat .222 versus Tallion. Not only that, but Tallion has had a good season overall. Toronto will find it difficult to record hits versus one of the Yankees’ best.

Blue Jays vs. Yankees Betting Prediction

This is a difficult game to predict. Based on recent head-to-head contests, the Cubs should win. Chicago is 7-6 in the previous 13 matches this year. But the weekend’s 3-game series is the first in the second half of the season. Milwaukee is in the middle of a dogfight with the Cardinals for the division title while Chicago is just playing ball.

The Brewers have more at stake. So they could step it up. However, starter Aaron Ashby was in terrible form in July. He didn’t start out August well either when allowing 4 earned runs in less than 5 innings versus the Reds in a loss.

Ashby picked it up against the Cardinals in his second start in August, though. He held the Redbirds to a couple of earned runs off 3 hits in 6 innings. If Ashby’s form has turned positive, the Brewers score the victory. Go with the road squad.
